The Girl Scout program is adapted to the development needs of girls and young women. Girls may enter at any of the following age levels in Girl Scouting:
Twinklers (4-6 years old) have mostly exploratory and discovery activities.
Stars (6 to 9 years old) go into interest-enhancing activities
Juniors (9 to 12 years old) focus their energies on skills development
Seniors (12 to 15 years old) render service to the community, local and global
Cadets (15 to 21 years old) undergo leadership-strengthening activities, explore career choices and undertake community development
Girls with disabilities are also accepted in the Movement as members of regular troops. Adaptations in uniform and activities are made to suit their disabilities and capabilities.
