Administrative History

The first Girl Scouts troop in Wichita was organized in 1921, and by 1925, the Wichita Girl Scout Council was formed, directing the activities of the many troops in the city. In the 1950s the Council expanded its region to include all troops in Sedgwick County, changing its name to the Wichita Area Girl Scout Council. In 2001 the organization was renamed and rechartered as the Girl Scouts of the Golden Plains.
