Lutheran Girl Pioneers

 

 

The Lutheran Girl Pioneers club began in 1954, as a sister group to the Lutheran Pioneers, an all boy club. They are both part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. The Lutheran Pioneers celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2014.

A uniformed group continues today; there are 5 levels; Sunbeams, Traveler, Trailblazer, Homesteader and Spinner.

Their motto is Loyal to Christ.

The official colors are brown and white.

Groups are called Caravans.

Instead of earning badges like other girls clubs, once a Lutheran Girl Pioneer reached the Traveler age level, she would earn a charm bracelet and charms. Shown below are the charms noted in the handbooks, but newspaper articles note that there were more charms, such as swimming, cooking, etc.
