The Girl Scouts organization turns the big 100

Girl Scouts across the country have reason to celebrate.

The Girl Scouts of America organization turns the big 100, Monday.

The organization started in Savannah, Georgia in 1912 with just 18 girls.

They had a birthday bash over the weekend and more than 3,000 Girl Scouts traveled to Georgia to celebrate.

Sarah Buffington, a Girl Scout celebrating said, "Truly exciting.  It's neat to be a part of an organization that promotes growth of women in a nice and grown up way."

Nation-wide there are about 2,300,000 Girl Scouts.
