Invitation to Join

Already a member? Log in to renew.

We can’t wait to meet you and share how Girl Scouts can brighten your girl’s world. Join us for an exciting event and get a taste of all the fun she’ll have as a member.

Bring a friend, make new ones, and get WILD on the dance floor with Girl Scouts! Parents & Caregivers, you’re invited too! There will be an opportunity to chat with our staff and ask any questions you may have about Girl Scouting. These events are designed for girls in grades K – 3. This event is intended to give non-members a chance to experience the fun and excitement of Girl Scouts!

Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your girl, even in the most challenging of times. While she’s learning about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; entrepreneurship; and important life skills, she’s also discovering new ways to make your family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone. Plus? Girl Scouts is FUN!

Ready to Join?

GSHPA is thrilled to welcome you and your girl! Membership dues are just $25 annually, but financial aid may be available. Whether you have questions about starting a new troop for your girl and her friends, joining an existing troop, or something else, send us a note at MemberServices@gshpa.org or call us at 800.692.7816. We’re here for you!

When your girl becomes a Girl Scout, she’ll:

  • Join a group of local girls—called a troop—for regularly scheduled meetings (either virtual or in person)
  • Make new friends in a space where she feels comfortable to just be herself
  • Have a community of caring adult volunteers to guide her as she tries new things
  • Practice new skills and earn Girl Scout badges and awards
  • Make the world a better place by helping her community
  • Try coding, robotics, engineering and more through hands-on STEM activities
  • Enjoy the great outdoors while learning how to protect animals and the environment
  • Build business smarts through the Girl Scout Cookie Program

What is Girl Scouts?
Girl Scouts isn’t just a moment in her life, it’s a movement dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

Why do families love us?
Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your girl, even in the most challenging of times. While she’s learning about STEM, the outdoors, entrepreneurship, and important life skills, she’s discovering new ways to make your family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone.

How does it work?
Groups of Girl Scouts, called troops, typically meet weekly or biweekly for an hour or two. Guided by adult volunteers—often parents and caregivers—girls select exciting hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each other on. Together, they earn badges to reflect their successes and show the world what they’re made of.

What’s the goal?
Making sure girls see and have opportunities to reach their potential isn’t just about helping them earn better grades, make better decisions, and lead happier lives (though it helps with those things too!). It’s about creating a more fair, equal, and compassionate world where every girl has a seat at the table and can make her dreams come true. Check out our values in the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
