Do you want to be a Girl Scout?
You’ll have so much fun! In Girl Scouts you’ll have exciting experiences that will help prepare you for your future. You can go on field trips, explore your community, and learn about nature, science, and the arts. In a troop or on your own, you’ll discover new interests, earn badges, and participate in special projects that help other people and the planet.
Choose activities that interest you and begin a journey filled with wonderful adventures! Complete a Girl Interest Form to get the process started, or come to one of our Girl Scout Information Nights. Our family guide explains the basics of Girl Scout membership and activities.
