Together Congregation Etz Hayim (Arlington) and Agudas Achim Congregation (Alexandria) sponsor a Girl Scout Troop! We have grown to a multi-age & multi-level troop with Daisies (Kindergarten & First Grade), Brownies (2nd & 3rd Grade) and Juniors (4th & 5th grade).
This extraordinary group of Jewish Girl Scouts meets monthly, on Sundays after religious school. Our Girl Scouts meet with old and new friends for fun, learning and sisterhood.
Girl Scouts is a self-esteem building program which builds courage, confidence and character. It is a fantastic leadership and team-building program with opportunities for serving others as well as recognizing personal accomplishments. Activities correspond to important values such as honesty, friendliness, caring, respect, consideration for the environment and desire to better the world for all who live in it.
