When you have a passion, it’s something to encourage and develop. That’s why the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore offers a variety of clubs that meet throughout the year on a monthly basis. Through these activities, girls make friends with others who have the same interests and grow in confidence.
Are you a budding archer who’s interested in honing their skills and learning more about archery?

Each year, the Archery Club members help host and take part in Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s annual Archery Tournament.
