AHG Program Levels

Each AHG Program Level is specifically created with the physical, mental, social, spiritual, and emotional needs of girls 5 to 18 years old.

American Heritage Girls is designed to celebrate girlhood in every way. Unlike other extracurricular activities that exist to push a child into mastery, the Program Levels do not serve to rush a girl through learning and experiencing all that AHG has to offer. Rather, the five Program Levels of AHG exist to guide a girl towards pursuing Christian leadership opportunities and becoming a woman of integrity in her own way by exploring life skills, faith, and service.

AHG's family-friendly, multi-level structure means that girls ages 5 to 18 meet together as a single Troop at the same time. During Troop meetings, girls and leaders break into Units where programming is tailored to the different age groups and abilities. This structure allows for natural mentorship for younger girls and leadership opportunities for older girls.


Ages 5-6 Under tender loving leadership from volunteers and older girls in the Troop, Pathfinders grow in knowledge and truth. Through fun Troop activities, younger girls can foster their natural curiosity and creativity while learning what it means to be an American Heritage Girl. Pathfinders become anchored in Christ through fundamental faith lessons and Troop service events. These girls begin the AHG Program with experiences in life skills, outdoor adventures, leadership, and social interactions. Parents are encouraged to enjoy the AHG Program with their daughters in the Pathfinder Level. Girls at this Program Level can achieve the following:

  • Necklace beads for attendance and participation
  • Activity Patches
  • Fanny Crosby Level Award
