SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- While San Diego County is still being forced to practice social distancing, Girl Scouts San Diego is finding ways to bring troops together by offering virtual troops.

“Girl Scouts is needed now more than ever,” said Carol Dedrich, CEO of Girl Scouts San Diego.

Over 23,000 girls are participating in Girl Scouts throughout San Diego. The virtual troops allow girls to volunteer and participate in activities, at home, to earn their badges.

“STEM is the fastest-growing program in Girl Scouts. Girls are going on virtual field trips and doing workshops, so they can do it in a fun format and do it with their friends.”

The organization is now offering the chance for girls to join a virtual troop or for adults volunteers to begin their group.

Girl Scouts of San Diego is having a virtual camp-out in June. All girls in grades K-12 are welcome to attend.
