Girl Scouts position on Religion and Spirituality is stated in the Blue Book of Basic Documents, Policies of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America (2012), 23
The motivating force in Girl Scouting is spiritual. The ways in which members identify and fulfill their spiritual beliefs are personal and private
Flexibility in Wording for Spiritual Believes in the Girl Scout Promise
Girl Scouts of the USA makes no attempt to define or interpret the word “God” in the Girl Scout Promise. It looks to the individual members to establish for themselves the nature of their spiritual beliefs. When making the Girl Scout Promise, individuals may substitute wording appropriate to their own spiritual beliefs for the word “God.”
Place of Religion in the Girl Scout Program
Girls are encouraged and helped through the Girl Scout program to become better members of their own religious group, but every Girl Scout group must recognize that religious instruction is the responsibility of the parents and religious leaders.
Respect For Religious Opinions and Practices
Every Girl Scout shall respect the varying religious opinions and practices of its membership in planning and conducting activities.
Troops Sponsored by Religious Groups
When a Girl Scout troop is sponsored by one religious group, members of different faiths or religious affiliations within the troop shall not be required to take part in religious observance of the sponsoring group.
Everything in Girl Scouting is based on the Girl Scout Promise and Law. The Girl Scout Law includes many principles and values common to most faiths. Girl Scouts, a secular organization since the movement began, encourages girls to take spiritual journeys via their faiths' religious awards.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri encourages girls to affirm a connection to their faith by participating in the My Promise, My Faith pin program. This program complements existing religious awards and allows all girls to further strengthen the connection between their faith and Girl Scouts. A girl earns the My Promise, My Faith pin by carefully examining the Girl Scout Law and directly tying it to tenets of her faith.
Girls can earn this national pin each year. Requirements for this pin are included in The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for all levels.
