ATTENTION: Please note that due to COVID, we are not able to rent out current program in a box due to the kits including shared supplies which does not meet our COVID safety guidelines. Please use our Badge in a Box in the Badges and Journey section here as an alternative. Thank you.

Not sure how to present a badge or journey or how to add STEM or financial literacy to your scout year? Let the Girl Experience Team help. Have fun with your girls, while all the set-up work and planning is already done. Programs in a box are kits with everything you need to present and run a program, event, activity or badge with Girl Scouts. The kits have all the consumable and non-consumable resources, items, guides and support for the program.

To request a kit please email a completed rental form to Requests must be made at least two weeks prior to rental date. Please see the website for the full listing and further information on the kits. 

Religious Awards

The Girl Scout My Promise My Faith pin invites girls in grades K-12 to experience a faith journey through exploration of the Girl Scout Law and teachings from their faith.  Girls may earn this national pin every year.  There are five steps to earning this pin. 

There are many Religious Recognitions that are created by faith communities for their members who are Girl Scouts.  Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. provides a list of approved programs that allows the recognition insignia to be worn on the official uniform.  Each religious organization develops and administers its own program.  The website provides a Religious Recognitions Chart which includes images of these emblems and contact information.

Rochester Area Jewish Committee on Scouting

The Rochester Area Jewish Committee on Scouting (JCoS) is looking for Jewish Girl Scouts!

The Jewish Committee on Scouting (JCoS) was formed to support Jewish scout programs in the Rochester area. They have recently expanded their support to cover local Girl Scouts and are looking for additional information from Jewish Girl Scout troops and individuals.

JCoS will develop a database and provide information regarding Jewish programing that relates to Girl Scouts. They can also match Girl Scouts with tutors that can help with Religious Awards. Further developments using the database are planned by JCoS to continue to tailor programs for Jewish scouts.  

If you would like to be added to the JCoS database or are interested in helping on the Committee, please contact Howard Ressel by email at, include your Girl Scout's name and troop number.
