Extended-year Membership for NEW Members


Joining Now? Choose Our NEW Extended-year Membership!

Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success, and your girl can start her Girl Scout journey, right now.

Our Girl Scout year begins every Oct. 1, but for the first time ever, we're offering Extended-year Membership for NEW members. From now through June 30, 2019, you can register for and enjoy up to 17-months of membership ending Sept. 30, 2020. Extended-year membership (only $56 for girls and $35 for adults) allows you to begin your Girl Scout Leadership Experience immediately, instead of waiting until fall. You can enjoy some of this year's activities, continue through the summer, and be ready for the traditional troop experience in the fall. It’s a pretty sweet deal!

Every girl who signs up for Extended-year Membership at one of our Service Centers receives a FREE gift. Plus, new Girl Scouts and Adult Members can enjoy these great Girl Scout activities:

Extended-year Membership also offers participation in any Girl Scout Council-sponosored activities before Sept. 30, 2019.
