Registration Instructions

We're so glad you're ready to join Girl Scouts!

Before you continue, here are some quick tips to make the registration process as smooth as possible:

Finding a Troop

After clicking Continue below and filling out your basic information, you'll find our Girl Opportunity Catalog, where you can search for troops in your area or search for a specific troop number. Be sure to increase the search radius if you don’t see enough options in your zip code.

One of our new and most exciting options we are now offering is joining Girl Scouts and participating in Virtual Troop meetings. Search for “Virtual” in the search field and the open options for the girls grade level will appear.

If your address is outside the five boroughs of New York City but you would like to join a troop in our Council, please be sure to use a zip code from NYC, like “10005”, so that your membership will be linked with your NYC troop selection.

If you are a current member and would like to renew and join a virtual troop, please renew your membership here.

Join a Virtual Troop

The Girl Scouts of Greater New York has launched a brand new city-wide Virtual Girl Scout troops! This initiative is looking to engage current registered girls and brand-new girls in meaningful ways. During the 10 weeks of Virtual Troop Meetings, which will begin the week of June 8, 2020, we will continue to deliver the Girl Scout traditions such as the Promise and Law and the girls will have an opportunity to engage in exciting adventures, work on badges and participate in Virtual Camp. 

To join a virtual troop, register and search “virtual” in the search area, a virtual troop will be displayed. Troops will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Based on volunteer capacity, we hope to have more Virtual Troop opportunities starting in mid-July. Girls that miss this first round of Virtual Troops and are excited to register as a Girl Scout, can join as a Juliette!

Join as a Juliette Girl Scout

You can join as a solo Girl Scout, otherwise known as a Juliette. Together with an Adult Mentor or Caregiver, you can plan a Girl Scout experience that works for your schedule and interests. You can earn badges and awards, sell cookies, participate in events, journeys and more!

To join as a Juliette, search the catalog for “Juliette” instead of a troop number.
