The Girl Scouts Get Started program is designed to ensure girls in our 9-county footprint are aware of and have access to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE).
Girl Scouts Get Started begins the Girl Scout journey with a free membership. Girls can also request assistance to purchase uniform components or to attend a summer camp adventure.
As part of Girl Scouts Get Started, girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Girls develop important life skills of goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics that will set girls up for success beyond anything they can imagine.
Additionally, regular participation in the Cookie Program enables girls to continue their Girl Scout experience now and in years to come by earning Cookie Dough Credits that can be used for membership renewal, program and camp registration, and to get their Girl Scout gear at GSEP shops and camp Trading Posts. As girls grow so do their opportunities to earn older girl credits that can be used for travel, membership, and support their silver and gold award projects.
Girls Scouts is not just what your girl does now, it is who she is and will become in the future.
