The Sheridan American Heritage Girls troop was started in the fall of 2018 by Shauna Bowers. She had been in scouting for 30 years, but wanted a program that was Christ-centered. She did some research and discovered the American Heritage Girls organization which was founded by Patti Garibay in 1985.
Sheridan Wesleyan Church agreed to charter the troop–which was the first troop in the state of Wyoming. We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year!
Our Mission and Vision are below:
“Building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country.”
American Heritage Girls is the premier national character development organization for young women that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement.
All biological girls of any color, creed, race, national origin and socioeconomic status who agree to live according to the standards of the AHG Oath and the AHG Creed are invited to be members of American Heritage Girls.
