American Heritage Girls is a Christ-centered character and leadership development program for girls 5 to 18 years of age. AHG is dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country. With each AHG year, girls are introduced to new skills, experiences (including outdoor adventures) and leadership positions, as well as given opportunities to grow closer to the Lord. The American Heritage Girls Program enables a girl to grow in her FAITH, cultivate a heart for SERVICE, and have more FUN than she can imagine!
We are a Catholic troop where our leaders model and teach Catholic values. Girls in the troop can earn the Diocesan Catholic Faith Awards. We are a multi-level troop so families with girls in different age groups can bring all their girls to the same meeting. We also have great leaders who do their best to teach the girls about everything from cake decorating to astronomy! There are six Badge Frontiers: Our Heritage, Personal Well-Being, Family Living, Arts, Science & Technology, and Outdoor Skills. The girls can complete badges at home, outside of our meeting times.
The program is designed to build leadership skills. The older girls can serve as section leaders to the troop. In addition to the 3 badges, we do each year as a troop, the girls can earn as many badges as they want on their own. The girls also have the opportunity to attend campouts (2-3/ year), participate in service projects (Newborns in Need, Ozarks Food Harvest, Valentines for parish shut-ins, passing out Passports a the SEAS Craft Fair, etc.) fun social experiences like ice skating and spiritual experiences like praying at Adoration.
AHG Troop 1118 meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday from 6-7pm at SEAS. For more information, contact April Mika at [email protected].
Troop 239 is chartered by St Elizabeth Ann Seton Church.
Cub Scout Pack 239 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton welcomes Kindergarten through 5th graders to join.
