Become a Girl Scout
Be a Girl Scout
When you just can’t wait for what you’ll do next, you can do anything!
At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure they’ll go on together. Maybe it’s artistic. Maybe it’s an experiment. Maybe it’s getting outside or helping the community. With us, you’ll make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences that show you how exciting the world is, and how awesome you are, over and over again.
Girl Scout membership is open to any girl in grades K-12, who accepts the principles of Girl Scouting and pays the annual membership fee of $25. The membership year runs from October 1 through September 30. No matter which troop, camp session, or event your child is placed in, joining Girl Scouts opens the door for her to be involved in many exciting activities. Specific opportunities are dependent upon availability. Click here to continue.
You can join Girl Scouts at any age and don’t have to start at the beginning. Click on your grade level below for a one-page overview of what girls your age are doing in Girl Scouts.
What will you do?
In Girl Scouts, GIRLS decide what they will do, that’s what “girl-led” is all about. Girls can participate in different programs depending on their interests and schedule. Our most popular participation options include:
Troops are groups of girls the same age who meet regularly (once a week, every other week or monthly). Each group decides what they want to do, but it could include working on Journeys, badges and other awards, planning camping trips, conducting community service projects, taking part in the Cookie Sale, or anything else they set their minds to.
Whether you’re a lifelong camper or want to experience the out-of-doors for the first time, this is for you. Girl Scouts offers outdoor programs throughout the year as well as summer camp opportunities. Camp is a great way to explore leadership, build skills, and develop an appreciation for nature.
If you want to attend lots of different one-day or weekend events, this is ideal. Select from over 300 events offered by Girl Scouts and our community program partners.
For those of you who love to visit new places, Girl Scout Travel is a perfect option. Take part in the planning and fund raising, then enjoy a trip around the state, around the country or around the world. Teens also have the chance to travel to exciting national and international destinations.
