Learn More About Girl Scouting

Is your daughter interested in learning a sport, sampling the arts, preparing for a career, or rafting down a river? Does she dream of publishing stories online, traveling to exotic locales, or speaking on behalf of girls in Washington, D.C.? In Girl Scouting, she can do it all! Girls in grades K-12 can join as girl members.

Never been a Girl Scout? It's not too late. Girl Scouts come in all age groups—all you have to want is to make a difference in the lives of girls. Adults 18 years of age or older can join Girl Scouts to serve as a mentor or speak at a Girl Scout event, volunteer in a troop or group, offer services at the council level, or simply say "I believe in the Girl Scout mission and want to show my support by becoming a member."

Membership is what you make it. From a traditional troop experience, to just attending the programs that interest you the most, you can be a Girl Scout on your time, in your way.

Please note: Zip troops are mixed aged troops that meet on a scheduled basis. These troops are for girls looking to participate in the Girl Scout Troop Pathway, but are not currently in a troop. Girls in Zip Troops are transitioned into traditional troops once a troop or leader is available.
