Early Bird is your chance to be the first to renew for another exciting year of GIrl Scouts! Whether you're a go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, or leader, when you renew membership between Monday, May 15-Saturday, July 15, you get the chance to unleash your greatness for another year, AND get a special patch!
You are more than a Girl Scout. You’re a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)
We believe there’s no such thing as too much. That there’s no excuse for making excuses. Our strength doesn’t come from how much we can lift but from how often we can lift ourselves back up. We are everyday optimists. Adventure seekers. Problem solvers. We are girls, troop leaders, mentors, advocates, parents, Girl Scouts. We are G.I.R.L.s (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader). We will not stop. In fact, we’re just getting started. Renew today.
Girls: Renew by Monday, July 31, to receive your free G.I.R.L. patch!
Leaders: Renew by Monday, July 31, to receive a 10% discount in the retail shop and a first aid kit!
