Frontier Girls is a scout like youth program for girls offered as an alternative to Girl Scouts. There was once a time when the educational theory for girls was based on the fact that a woman’s place was in the home; her education and abilities were carefully centered around present and future homemaking activities. Then the pendulum swung the other direction as women battled for equal rights within the work place. Simply being a homemaker was suddenly considered a lowly position. Frontier Girls recognizes not only the ability of women to excel in the career of their choice, but more importantly the continued need for strong and loving mothers in the home. Our mission shows our belief that you can do anything you set your mind to. From the President of the United States to a mother of ten, your future is up to you. Regardless of what you choose, there are certain skills and character traits that will always hold you in good stead and these are what we are hoping to teach you.
More Than 1200 Individual Badges!
Through its youth program for girls, Frontier Girls promotes a life long love of learning and has made a commitment to write a badge on virtually any subject a girl wishes to learn about with the exception of controversial subjects we feel are better addressed by parents and religious leaders. Our badges are divided into nine Areas of Discovery:
- Discover Agriculture
- Discover Art
- Discover Character
- Discover Health and Fitness
- Discover the Home
- Discover Knowledge
- Discover the Outdoors

Frontier Girls encourages girls to ask anything and explore everything.
