You're Invited to Join Girl Scouts!


On any given day, there are Girl Scouts climbing mountains, painting murals, coding robots, feeding the hungry and advocating for ways to make the world a better place. But right now, our world looks a little different. We have developed programming to meet families in this new environment so girls can experience Girl Scouts while practicing safe social distancing.

We have a wide variety of family activities, challenges, national service projects, virtual events, and patches available to every girl! 




Whether your girl is just getting ready to enter kindergarten or moving up to 1st grade, Girl Scouts can expand her world outside of school! Girls will unleash their Imagination to try a wide variety of new and exciting things. She'll make friends, grow in confidence and build skills that will help her in school and beyond.
