The Redlands Council of Girl Scouts have committed themselves to developing troops in all five of the Authority's family developments.  We see this as a very positive activity for these girls.  Girl Scout programs offer girls an opportunity to expand their horizons.   

The objectives are to "motivate, and educate the girls to develop their self-esteem so that they can become decision making adults."  Troops meet weekly.
