Learn about Girl Scouts at fall information sessions
Girl Scout registration season is HERE! We're so excited about having new girls join us for a year of adventure. Girls will make new friends while discovering new things and building new skills.
We want you to get to know us. Girl Scout staff will be at school Meet the Teacher and open house events and scheduled information sessions in your area. We encourage you to attend an information session at a neighborhood school or virtually to learn about the benefits of Girl Scouting. We have something for every girl and every adult volunteer.
Participate in New Family Orientation meetings
Have you joined Girl Scouts and are waiting for your child to be placed in a troop? If so, join us for New Family Orientation meetings! These optional meetings are held virtually twice a month to give you and your child an opportunity to participate in Girl Scout activities while waiting for their troop to begin. These meetings are an hour long and include a fun art or STEM activity. The first meeting is Sept. 25.
Sign up for the Fall Product Program sale
Participating in the Fall Product Program is a wonderful way to introduce girls to Girl Scouting. Girls get a chance to learn entrepreneurial skills, while selling nuts, candy, and magazines to family and friends. The fall product sale begins Sept. 14.
Sign up soon so you can help your troop earn money to fund exciting adventures like sleeping under the stars at Camp Agnes Arnold or completing a service project in your neighborhood. This year girls have a chance to earn a giant plush Ocelot by entering a drawing!
More details are coming soon on our Fall Product webpage. Until then, start planning your sales strategy now!
Take the Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors Challenge
Join Girls Scouts nationwide as they participate in our Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors Challenge. We know this summer has been scorching hot, but there are still ways to safely spend time outdoors and take our outdoor challenge.
Spending at least 120 minutes a week in nature is associated with good health and well-being, whether you spend that time becoming a rockstar at rock climbing or making a splash in the puddles around your neighborhood.
