Join Girl Scouts in NYC!

Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your girl.

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 a troop?

Girl Scouts of Greater New York is thrilled to welcome you and your girl! Membership dues are just $25 annually, but financial aid may be available if you qualify. Whether you have questions about starting a new troop for your girl and her friends, joining an existing troop, or something else, send our Customer Care team a note or call us at 212.645.4000. We’re here for you!

Learn. Explore. Join a Virtual Girl Scout Troop!

This year is like no other. With schedules and plans constantly changing, we’ve all had to be flexible, and now, so is Girl Scouts.

Whether she attends weekly meetings, builds her business skills with the Girl Scout Cookie Program, makes the world a better place with the Leadership Institute, or just connects with friends at a virtual camp singalong this year, we invite you to choose the custom Girl Scout experience that works for your family and your girl.

Please follow our Joining a Virtual Troop instructions to register.

During the current outbreak of COVID-19, we are hosting virtual Council events and have advised all troops to continue Girl Scouting activities online. This is a great time to join Girl Scouts in New York City as we have many badge activities and virtual troop meetings that can be done remotely or in your home. Virtual programming can be accessed at our Virtual Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

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
