Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama ProgramsGirl Scouting is committed to being the organization serving all girls. This is carried out through a variety of informal educational programs under the leadership of caring, trained volunteers and staff. Program events and camping opportunities are available year-round with enrichment opportunities offered in other countries.
