Is your Girl Scout troop studying South Korea for World Thinking Day?
You’re sharing sisterhood with 80,000 girls in South Korea who are part of Girl Scouts of Korea. Girl Scouts of Korea became a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1957.
Girl Scouts of Korea is much like scouting in the U.S.
They have a number of scouting levels.
- Twinkler Scout – ages 4 to 5
- Gaenari (Brownie Girl Scout) – ages 6 to 8
- Jindalrae (Junior Girl Scout) – ages 8 to 11
- Sonyeodae (Cadette Girl Scout) – ages 12 to 14
- Yeonjangdae (Senior Girl Scout) – ages 15 to 17
- Yeongudae (Young Leader (Girl Scout)) – ages 18 to 21
- Seongindae (Adult Troop) – ages 21 and older
There are also “Extension Troops” for disabled and working girls.

I love this Girl Scout Thinking Day video developed by a teen who spent a year in South Korea. “Studying abroad will … make you part of a huge global family.”
