Girl Scouts in Door and Kewaunee Counties are keeping the course with their recruitment efforts despite other local youth organizations going co-ed. There are six different levels of Girl Scouting, starting with Daisies in Kindergarten and concluding with Ambassadors as upperclassmen in high school. Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes Council Communications Coordinator Melissa Loest told DoorCountyDailyNews.com this summer that their organization remains focused on cultivating an all-girl, girl-led environment for its members.
Recruiting efforts usually hit a peak at the beginning of the school year, but Loest says interested girls can join troops near them at any time. The Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes serves approximately 16,000 girls across northern Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula Michigan, including hundreds in Door and Kewaunee Counties.
