Steps to Register a Girl
numbers

Use our online registration form for girls to get started! You’ll be asked for some basic contact information and then taken to our Opportunity Catalog, to choose how she would like to participate in Girl Scouts.

Enter your zip code to search our Opportunity Catalog to find a local Girl Scouting option that works for your family. Options that are available in your immediate zip code for your girl’s grade will be displayed. To find the best option, you may need to expand the zip code radius, or enter your girl’s school zip code instead.

If you’ve been given a troop number but can’t find it in the catalog, don’t worry!  You can select “Unsure” which will allow you to type the troop number or other identifying information into a text box. 

If you aren’t sure what troop to pick, you can always select “Looking for a troop in….” Our staff work to place girls that selected this option into new or existing troops. In order to begin this process, we do ask that girls are registered members, which involves paying the $25 membership fee.

Interested in starting a new troop and being your girl’s troop leader?  Select “I want to lead her troop.” Once you’ve registered her, you can register as a troop leader by selecting the same option from our Volunteer Opportunity Catalog.
