A few facts:
* Lutheran Girl Pioneers is an affiliated ministry of the WELS (meaning we are affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Synod, but receive no funding from either Synod). Our means of funding is primarily from our yearly membership dues ($20 per girl, per year).
* Membership in Girl Pioneers includes: a leader library, name recognition (we've been around since the 1950s!), assistance from experienced leaders (through National Conventions, your District Counselor, and access to the National Office), merchandise (available through our easy-to-use online store), National Activities (National Camp, National Pine Car Derby, National Convention), and national newsletters (“The Prairie Schooner News,” published each month for the girls in Lutheran Girl Pioneers and “The Guide,” published six times a year for the leaders and pastors of our ministry).
* Lutheran Girl Pioneers has caravans of all sizes- some as big as 60 to 100 girls, some as small as 4 or 5 girls.
* Lutheran Girl Pioneers is for all girls, ages Kindergarten through high school. Our program materials are appropriate for all levels, and we have materials for all the ages.
* Lutheran Girl Pioneers materials are up-to-date and our handbooks have recently been re-vamped.
