American Heritage Girls is the premier national character development organization for girls ages 5-18 that embraces Christian values and encourages family involvement. We meet at Community Church on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 6:15 to 8:15 to coincide with our Trail Life USA Troop 148. We start with an opening flag ceremony and announcements and break out into our three units for class and badge work. In addition to badge work, we camp, take field trips, and serve our community.

Life Skill Enhancement
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. The Badge program provides opportunities for girls to interact across age groups, as older girls teach younger girls. Each Badge can be earned at three different levels (Tenderheart, Explorer, and Pioneer/Patriot).
Girls love having fun with their friends! Many girls say that being with other girls in Troop meetings, field trips, camp-outs and special events is their favorite part of being an American Heritage Girl. Each Troop provides plenty of opportunities throughout the year for every girl to make friends and enjoy spending time with them!
AHG wants every girl to share her talents and ideas to make her Troop the best it can be! AHG's multi-Level Troop structure offers many opportunities for girls to experience different leadership roles. As a girl ages through the program, her leadership opportunities and responsibilities increase accordingly. These lessons carry through to all areas of a girl’s life: in her home, as a citizen of our country, as a member of her church, and even as a student in school!
AHG exists to help girls learn more about God, about how to walk in faith, and the need to seek God’s will in our lives. Our hope is that each and every girl will experience the Lord in all parts of AHG -- the Oath, friends, Leaders, through service, Religious Recognitions programs, and even Badge work! AHG helps girls to live their lives for God!
