MiCaSa Girl Scouts

of the Girl​ Scouts of California's Central Coast

Troop Leaders

Troop leaders are at the core of many girls’ scouting experience. In this section, you will find the tools and information you need to support girls at each Girl Scout level.

Daisies begin building life skills as they grow with new friends. They earn petals and leaves as they learn about themselves and Girl Scouting.

Brownies explore their world with their Girl Scout friends. They develop cooperation and other skills as they connect with their community.

Juniors begin to take charge of their experience as they plan troop activities as a team and choose take action projects that speak to them.

Cadettes work with volunteers to plan community projects. They will gain self-confidence as they work with the world around them.

Seniors tackle challenges that require critical thinking skills and independence. They plan enriching activities as they look to the future.

Ambassadors: 11th + 12th Grades

Ambassadors work with their peers to make a difference in our world. They learn how to be an advocate for the causes they care about.
