For years, singing has been an important part of Girl Scouting. When large gatherings of girls come together, singing can be a memorable part of the event. Ask any girls or volunteers that have participated in a Girl Scout sing-along, and they'll share just how special it is. Singing not only brings joy, satisfaction, and relaxation, but can also enhance the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character. Music helps create bridges of understanding as girls develop new skills and build an appreciation of other countries and cultures, and enrich their appreciation of the many types of songs that can be part of their lives.
