Who can be a Girl Scout Membership is available to any girl in grades K5-12 who accepts the Girl Scout Promise and Girl Scout Law, and pays annual membership fees (financial assistance is available). A girl who meets membership requirements shall not be denied admission to any troop or group because of race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, citizenship, ancestry, physical or mental disability, health status, socio-economic/public status, or national origin. Women and men, 18 years or older, may join as adult members by accepting the principles of the organization.

Girl Scout Basics

Girl Scout grade levels:

Girl Scout Basics

Grades K5-1

Grades 2-3

Learning by doing in a girl-led environment Grades 4-5 Girl Scouts is an exciting way to engage girls all year round. National studies from the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) show it’s not just what girls do, but how they do it that makes Girl Scouts so beneficial. Girl Scouts is unique because girls get to learn by doing, and they do so in a girl-led environment. This means that, in addition to girls learning in a hands-on and active way, they are encouraged to choose their activities, decide which topics they want to explore, and determine how they want to go about exploring them. Girl Scouts is the largest girl-led organization in the world, and it’s a significant contributor to its members’ success and enjoyment in life. At Girl Scouts, girls learn to think critically about issues and solve problems together. We encourage teamwork and collaboration as much as we encourage independence and self-discovery. Here, she learns to believe in herself and count on her community for support. She learns to work as part of a team, bring people with varying perspectives together to devise solutions, and respect and appreciate the viewpoints of others as much as she does her own.

Grades 6-8

Grades 9-10

Grades 11-12

Membership The Girl Scout membership year is from October 1, 2018-September 30, 2019. All adults are encouraged to show their support of Girl Scouts by registering as members. To ensure safety for all members, adults who volunteer to work directly with girls must be registered members and pass a background check. Upon registration, members are automatically covered under the basic GSUSA insurance plan. Financial aid is available. For more information, go to gswise.org or call 800-565-4475

Girl Membership Troop: $25 per girl Most girls belong to a troop that meets on a regular basis (usually once or twice a month) over the course of a year. Troops are led by co-leaders, trained volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of girls. However, girls are the decision makers in these girl-led troops! That is what Girl Scouts is all about—a place where G.I.R.L.s unleash their power. Troops form yearround and girls can join anytime. Individually Registered Member (IRM): $25 per girl Sometimes girls are so busy they can’t attend a local troop meeting. No worries, girls can still be Girl Scouts— they register as an Individually Registered Member. Girls can pick and choose events to attend—ones that peak their interest and fit their schedule. They can participate in the financial literacy program and sell Girl Scout cookies to help finance their Girl Scout activities. Parents/guardians of IRMs are encouraged to register as an adult member with Girl Scouts to support their girl in her Girl Scout experience.

Girl Scout Basics Membership Adults

Lifetime Membership

Parents are a vital part of Girl Scouts. We want every Girl Scout’s experience to be the best it can be and you as a parent can make that happen.

Adult lifetime membership: $400 per member

Adult member: $25 per member Adult members are registered Girl Scouts who support the Girl Scout movement. Members receive our Connect email (twice a month) that includes council news, promotions, research on women and girls, council annual report, and so much more. You are also invited to be part of our Girl Scout Network on LinkedIn! Volunteer: $25 per member Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, a few months, or more, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible and fun when you become a volunteer member. • Troop Co-leaders — work with a group of girls and mentor them as they make new friends and develop connections that will last a lifetime. Training available online or in person. • Troop Helping Hands — assist with driving, activity planning, snacks, money management, or other tasks necessary to keep the troop running smoothly. • Troop Nut Manager/Cookie Captain — coordinate the annual Fall Nut Sale or Cookie Program Activity at the troop level. Set up cookie booths, manage inventory and money, and watch the girls light up when they meet their goals! • Camp or Event Volunteers — help girls explore nature and find fun outdoors or give a few hours to help an event go off without a hitch. • Specialist Volunteers — do you have a special set of skills that will help the next generation of Girl Scouts grow? Girls need to see women leaders who have blazed the path for them in STEM, protective services, woodworking, and many other fields. • Series Facilitator- facilitate Girl Scout curriculum with a group of girls for 4- 6 weeks. Focus on self esteem, STEM, or financial literacy. Curriculum and resources are provided.

Volunteers are always needed, but a minimum of two registered, approved, and unrelated Girl Scout adults must be present at every troop meeting. At least one volunteer needs to be a female, but men are welcome to volunteer too.

Adults who choose to become Girl Scouts for life help develop the essential qualities for girls to lead a lifetime of confidence, success, and adventure. Special Rates: Graduating Senior: $200 per member Recent high school graduates understand firsthand how an inclusive, girl-led environment can change a girl’s life. Parents, grandparents, or troop co-leaders can be a champion for girls changing the world today and for generations to come by purchasing a lifetime membership for their graduating senior. As a recent graduate she’ll enjoy a special rate of $200 (regularly priced at $400). Young Alumnae: $200 per member Anyone who was a registered Girl Scout member before the age of 18 and is under the age of 30 at the time of becoming a lifetime member receives a special discounted lifetime membership rate of $200.

Safety First The safety of girls in Girl Scouting is always a top priority. Troop co-leaders receive training and materials aimed at creating a safe and welcoming experience for all girls and adult volunteers. Resources such as Volunteer Essentials, Children and Youth Protection Guidelines, and Safety Activity Checkpoints are available at gswise.org.

Background Checks All volunteers must register and complete a background check to ensure the safety of all girls. Volunteers in roles such as co-leader, troop helping hands, troop nut manager, or cookie captain are required to complete a background check.

Health History Card To ensure the safety of girls during all Girl Scout activities, parents/guardians are highly encouraged to complete the Health History Card (found on p. 69–70) and provide to your troop co-leader annually. Girls who are not attending activities with a troop are encouraged to complete and bring the Health History Card to council-sponsored events to ensure event facilitators have necessary emergency contact information.

Girl Scout Basics Troop Basics

Camp

Managing Troop Funds

Summer Camp

The girls, with guidance from co-leaders, decide how troop funds will be used for their activities. Troop funds are earned by troops and are the property of the troop, not the individual girl members.

Girl Scout camp is a safe way for girls to have fun in the natural world. It’s the perfect place to challenge themselves, experience new things, and make lifelong friendships. There is a camp that is just right for every girl. Girls can choose to camp overnight and wake up for a swim or sail across crystal clear waters. Or they can choose to spend the night in their own beds and the day at camp exploring.

Co-leaders are required to keep troop financial records and to share this information with parents on a regular basis. All troop expenses and revenue should be run through the troop bank account. Misuse of Girl Scout funds is a serious offense and will be treated as such, including, but not limited to, legal prosecution.

Troop Dues Troops rely on a combination of troop dues and proceeds from product sales to finance activities. The amount and frequency of payment is determined at the troop level and reflects the troop’s plans for the year and the families’ ability to pay. Dues generally are a first-year cost for new troops to establish a financial base.

Uniforms We are proud of our Girl Scout identity and the sense of belonging that comes from wearing a uniform. Every Girl Scout should have a tunic, vest, or sash. This is where they can proudly display their badges, patches, and other awards. There will be times when girls are required to wear their uniform. All items can be purchased from a GSWISE resource center.

Overnight camp—Group living and camp activities at historic Camp Alice Chester in East Troy provide lifechanging experiences for girls. Themed camp stays, on and off the property, range from two to six nights and include activities like archery, arts, hiking, climbing, swimming, sailing, and adventure trips such as horseback riding and canoeing. GSWISE also partners with MATC to provide an overnight camp focused on protective services careers. Day camp—GSWISE has several day camp opportunities available. Camp Silver Brook Day Camp. Located in West Bend, staff lead campers through activities centered around a different theme each week throughout the entire summer. Located on beautiful Lucas Lake and the Ice-Age trail, busing to and from the camp is available at various sites in Milwaukee and Ozaukee counties. Day Camp by Community. GSWISE has one of the largest programs in the country! Over five thousand girls attend these day camps, planned and led by volunteers, with paid health supervision and lifeguards. Busing from your community to one of four different camp properties is available throughout the summer. Programs are listed at gswise.org and in the Summer Camps and Events Book (mailed to families in January).

Es por esto que Girl Scout se esfuerza por garantizar que las oportunidades de liderazgo estén disponibles para las niñas latina, brindando una experiencia relevante y culturalmente inclusiva. Como una Girl Scouts, su niña latina participará en la Experiencia de Liderazgo (GSLE), un programa único donde ella: • Realizará actividades saludables • Encontrará su espíritu emprendedor y aprenderá sobre educación financiera • Explorará al aire libre • Participará en el desarrollo de habilidades prácticas en las ciencias, la tecnología, la ingeniería y las matemáticas (STEM por sus siglas en inglés)

Todas las experiencias en Girl Scouts incorporan tres conceptos: Descubrir, Conectarse y Tomar Acción. Las niñas se descubren a sí mismas y sus valores y usan sus conocimientos y habilidades para explorar el mundo. Se conectan con otras niñas y adultos. Y toman acción para hacer del mundo un lugar mejor.

Event Basics Recognitions

Program Aides (PA)

All events are connected to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and many events help girls earn a Girl Scout recognition — a badge, patch, or Journey award. In the event description, “earned award” means that girls will complete all steps needed to earn the award and “related award” means that girls will complete some steps needed to earn the award. The event confirmation will list the steps being covered at an event. Recognitions are available for purchase at your local Girl Scout Service Center.

Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors, you can assist at events by leading activities as a Program Aide! Have fun, strengthen your leadership skills, and meet new friends while working directly with younger girls. Events with this symbol, PA , list opportunities for Program Aides.

Event Basics

Event Registration General Information

• How PAs register: o Go to gswise.org>MY GS>Member Profile>Activities. o Scroll through or search for events that interest you. o Find the event name with “PA” in front of it and use that link to complete your registration. PAs do not pay a registration fee. • Attend Program Aide Core Training before you volunteer. Although not required, it is a good idea. It is loaded with information to help you work well with younger girls. To register for a Program Aide Core Training visit gswise.org>MY GS>Member Profile>Activities.

Bridging Troops In the spring, girls bridging to the next level of Girl Scouting (Daisy to Brownie, for example) are invited to attend events for the grade they will be entering the following school year. This can help them get a feel for what’s to come at the next level.

Adult Volunteers/Chaperones Full refunds will be issued. Refunds should be received within two weeks.

Want to Bring a Friend? All girls are welcome to attend events. Encourage friends to become Girl Scouts to receive the Girl Scout member event fee or they can choose to pay the event fee plus an additional $25 non-member fee per event. Find out more by contacting customercare@gswise.org.

Non-members Attending Events There is a non-member option when registering for events. It is intended for girls that want to try out Girl Scouts before joining and for parents attending events with their child who are not responsible for chaperoning other children. Non-members pay a $25 fee plus the event fee per event (except for family and friend events). Paying the non-member fee doesn’t register them as a Girl Scout. To request transfer of non-member event fee to a member registration, contact customercare@gswise.org. gswise.org • 800-565-4475

Adults volunteering at Girl Scout programs and adults chaperoning girls other than their family are required to be registered with Girl Scouts of the USA as an adult member. Safety is our number one priority. We can ensure the safety of all Girl Scouts and Girl Scout volunteers only when adults become registered members and complete the required background check. Adult volunteers are responsible for obtaining permission slips and for meeting adult to girl ratios for the event. All attending adults are expected to assist the girl(s) as needed and to ensure appropriate girl behavior. For sleepover events, bed space is limited. Troops should only register the required number of adults to meet minimum required adult-to-girl ratios. Any additional adults wishing to attend should contact customercare@gswise.org a minimum of two weeks prior to the event to check availability.
