Series Pathway: Taking part in a ―Series‖ Pathway is one way girls (usually Juniors and
older) may participate in Girl Scouts. The same group of girls and adult volunteers take part
in a series of 6 to 8 activity sessions built around a specific theme or purpose. The kits or
notebooks below were developed to be used for six or more sessions led by an adult
volunteer or by a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador who has completed her Program Aide,
LIT, or CIT training – a great way to complete leadership or service hours. Of course girls in
troop Pathways may do these activities as well!
