Ways to Be a Girl Scout

Today’s Girl Scouts have more choices and ways to participate than ever before. Girls can have the traditional troop experience or mix and match activities to suit their schedule and interests.

Join a Troop

Troops allow girls to work as a team and build lasting friendships. Girls work with their troops on skill building, leadership and service projects while having fun with their friends.

Would You Like to Join a Troop?

  • Attend a registration event to join troops in your area
  • Contact us for help finding troops near you.
  • If you have at least two girls at the same grade/level, you can start your own troop. Call 800-845-0787 to get started.
