Girl Scouting is fun! But it's much more than that. It's also an opportunity for girls in grades K-12 to develop important life skills, discover themselves, and make a difference in the world around them. Through engaging programs and activities, we help today's girls become tomorrow's women leaders!
Most girls join for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.
You may participate in Girl Scout troops which meet on a regular basis after school, evenings, or weekends. You may also choose to participate in the Girl Scout program by meeting on a short-term basis with other girls with similar interests or by attending camps and special events. You may even participate as an individual, without being affiliated with a troop or group!
The Girl Scout program is based on the needs and interests of girls. All members:
Girl Scouts serve girls of every race, faith, economic status, and physical ability. Through safe, girl-centric activities, you will find courage to explore new experiences, confidence to test your abilities, and character to stand by your values.
Our guides, Your Girl Scout Journey (for girls), and Your Family Guide to Girl Scouting (for families) explain the basics of Girl Scout membership and activities.
We invite you to discover yourself, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place! Fill out a Girl Interest form, and we will contact you with more details.
