How We Serve
From earning badges to going on awesome trips and selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors and doing community service projects, girls lead their own adventures and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment. Together, they’ll take action to change the world, putting them on a path to a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
Traditional Troops: 6,000 Girl
Scouts and 3,545 adult volunteers
The majority of Girl Scouts in western Oklahoma will participate in a traditional troop, with dedicated adult volunteers serving as Troop Leaders. These girls have an incredibly rich experience: they earn badges, go outdoors, earn our highest awards and participate in community service and take action projects.
Community Programs: 2,500 Girl
Scouts in 100 community sites
About 25% of Girl Scouts participate through Community Programs, or staff-led troop opportunities for girls who may not otherwise participate in Girl Scouts. We focus on underserved, high poverty socioeconomic areas where girls can benefit the most from the skills and programs Girl scouts provides. Community Programs are in-school and after school activities, troops in public housing communities and troops in juvenile detention centers.
Outdoor Experiences: Camp
E-Ko-Wah, March - July, nearly 750 campers and volunteers

Located in Marlow, Oklahoma, adjacent to Lake Fuqua, Camp E-Ko-Wah teaches girls all about riding and taking care of horses, water sports safety, hiking and camp fires, high ropes courses and zip lining.
