Individual Girl Scouts
Girls may join Girl Scouting as an individually registered girl, or IRG. This option is a best fit for girls who want to be members of Girl Scouting but are unable to participate in troop or group activities. GSSJC provides these girls with many opportunities to participate in Council-sponsored activities.
A girl can register as an IRG for Brownies through Ambassador Girl Scout age levels and comes with no requirements other than Girl Scout membership.
Becoming an IRG is especially popular for girls ages 11-17 as it allows for a more flexible Girl Scout experience. Girls who have many extracurricular commitments can choose to be an IRG and participate in their favorite annual campout, join a special interest group that meets less frequently than a troop or earn badges as she as time rather than on a troop schedule.
