You want a brighter, happier tomorrow for your girl—and that’s exactly what we want, too.

In these uncertain times, Girl Scouts is here to provide consistency and stability for your girl. Girl Scouts isn’t cancelled and we continue to adapt to meet the needs of girls today.

Studies show Girl Scouts improves girls’ confidence and makes them better prepared for life’s challenges. We’re dedicated to helping your girl follow her heart while she discovers new interests, strengths, and abilities!

Best of all, this is a journey you take with your girl and there’s a place for the entire family.

Financial Aid

We believe every girl gets to be a Girl Scout. That’s why, with financial aid,  ALL girls can join.

We are committed to ensuring all girls have the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts. In order to remove financial barriers that may interfere, we offer limited funds to help members who would be unable to join in Girl Scout activities without financial support from our council.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand there can be a lot of questions about Girl Scouts, so we’ve created two FAQs to answer the most common questions.

You can access them both here.

 


 What matters in Girl Scouts?

Her Dreams—Girls love Girl Scouts because it’s where they call the shots. Girl Scouts are learning about robots, hiking, painting murals, feeding the hungry, and even writing laws to change the world.

Her Growth—This is where your girl can relax, knowing she’s accepted for exactly who she is today and all she can be tomorrow. At Girl Scouts we don’t focus on perfection, only her potential.

Her Success—With her group (called a troop) of Girl Scout sisters by her side, your girl will reach further, work harder, and bounce back faster. Get ready to see her shine like never before.
