American Heritage Girls ~ Another year another great adventure!
American Heritage Girls
I LOVE American Heritage Girls. If you are interested in learning more about American Heritage Girls, visit their website at www.American Heritage Girls.org
My two girls and I started with our local AHG troop in August of 2015. Since then we have enjoyed many fun adventures! My youngest started out as a 2nd year Tenderheart, and my older daughter started as a 2nd year Explorer.
I began as not only an AHG Mom but also an Assistant Unit Leader. I have also taken on the Assistant Treasurer position as well as help coordinate different outings and events and occasionally teach as the need arises.
My family believes in the core values of the AHG program – growing women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country.
While merit badges are not the focus of AHG, my daughters enjoy this aspect and the sense of accomplishment that brings. With each year in AHG, my girls earn approx 5-8 badges during our troop meetings and at home. Then with Summer Camp they each earned additional badges.
AHG helps girls acquire skills that will assist them in all areas of life. These skills may include how to use a computer, sew on a button, protect themselves, learn about their ancestors or what it takes to be an astronaut.
Girls will learn many skills as they earn AHG Achievement Badges. The badge program allows them to learn from older girls, and also gives them the chance to teach younger girls!
The American Heritage Girls Achievement Badge Program is divided into six "Frontiers."
These frontiers, when offered together during the year, offer a well-rounded program. Each badge can be earned at three different levels (Tenderheart, Explorer, and Pioneer/Patriot).
The six Frontiers of the American Heritage Girl program include:
Our Heritage Personal Well-Being Family Living
The Arts Science and Technology Outdoor Skills
As we start our second year with AHG, I just wanted to spread the word on how much we love this adventure and the morals and lessons that the girls learn. They make new life long friends and grow in their faith and integrity.
