Juliette Guidebook
Named after Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, a Girl Scout Juliette is an individual Girl Scout, mentored by a parent or other adult. She is able to build a custom Girl                           Scouting experience, while enjoying all Girl Scouts has to                             offer. It is an adventure created for her by her, whenever                             she wants! 

Traditions & Ceremonies
Ceremonies are a traditional and very important part of Girl Scouting. Ceremonies connect us to each other, honor milestones and events, celebrate accomplishments,                                   explore meaning, celebrate good times, and create a sense                         of unity. As Girl Scouts is girl-led, girls must always be                                 involved when planning a ceremony.
