How much does it cost for a girl to join Girl Scouts?

Your daughter would be a 1st year brownie. The fee is 10 dollars to join.If for whatever reason you cannot afford to join, they have a program called opportunity fund where they get you in for free. Depending on where you are from there will be a council nearby and they can tell you more. Dues vary with every troop. My troop is 20 dollars a month but they pay nothing for events, or patches. Some troops ask for 5 dollars a month but then you are out of pocket for everything as in supplies, patches and events. Brownies is such a special time as they are growing and need direction. Your daughter will learn so many things and skills that you and her will treasure for a long time! Also if she enjoys it I encourage you to start your own troop! It's great fun and so rewarding! :)

What is the teenage version of girl scouts called?

Geez, Haley, if you're going to plagiarize my answer, at least update the information from 3 years ago about the "brand new" level of Ambassadors. *eyeroll* (I'm not lying - I posted that 3 yaers ago here: In Girl Scouts, the levels are based entirely on what grade a girl is in, not on "ranks." Grades 6-8 are Cadettes, Grades 9-10 are Seniors, and Grades 11-12 are Ambassadors. All levels are referred to as "Girl Scouts" from kindergarten on up.

What college benefits do you get from girl scouts if any?

Are you asking about how it looks on the application? Or about scholarships? Colleges, in general, like to see some indication that a student has stuck with something they enjoy. So, instead of doing 20 different things for one year, doing one activity for 8 years looks better. IN GENERAL! But, remember that every college has their own criteria they use. There are scholarships for girl scouts that complete the gold award. Hope this helps some!

can someone please give me a list of things girls do in girl scouts?

Elizabeth.... LOL It's been about 40 years since I was in Girl Scouts...but, I loved it. Working on badges was do projects that has to do with cooking at home and when camping, sewing, treating people or animals for first aid, nature facts, science projects, crafts of all kinds, learning about different nationalities, sign language, singing, vollunteering to help community, etc.,. You work on the badges mostly on your own time, and at meetings, your group does a project of some kind....even if it is raking a yard for an elderly person, visiting at the children's hospital, going to Pizza Hut and making your own pizza...lot's of fun indoor and outdoor games and sports, and numerous projects, etc.,. Depending on whom is your leader and their interests, you could really have a great time! LOL Later in life I was a cub scout leader for the boys group, had the same kind of fun! :) You could google Girl Scouts of America and learn more that way! Good Luck! :) ***LOL... LOVED the movie Troop Beverly Hills! However, since I live in Wisconsin, what they did in their troop was way off the wall for us! :)

How many girl scouts receive their bronze award?

I read that 5500 girl scouts received their Gold Award last year, but I don't know the answer to your question about the Bronze Award, but I would like to congratulate you on earning your Silver Award and to encourage you to continue working hard towards your Gold Award. As an Eagle scout I can identify with the level of commitment and service it takes to earn such an honor. Scouting is such a rewarding experience, keep up the good work!

What have Girl Scouts in your community done in support of Girl Scout week?

I wish I could help, I really do, but that would violate the conditions of my parole.

Where can girl scouts go for and overnight program in Atlanta?

Atlanta Zoo does have an overnight program. The good news is that the girls get behind the scenes activity that you can't experience as a regular zoo visitor. The bad news, very pricey. Look at the Aquarium and Coca Cola plant and the museums. They may have overnight stays. If that doesn't work, spend an evening roughing. Most camp grounds such as KOA will have ready made fire rings, etc. making camping more convenient.

I have a girl scout group of middle school girls that cannot behave around other scouts.?

Ask the PARENTS to attend the next regular meeting, when there is no trip in progress, Explain the problems that you've had calmly and politely. Have examples ready. Tell them that such behavior is contrary to the Girl Scout promise and rules and is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Tell everyone that THE NEXT TIME there is trouble, the girls causing it will be expelled from the troop. Then do it. Yes, really.

Do the Girl Scouts of America discriminate against lesbians or female atheists from membership?

Yes LDS Republican, I would be such a danger to your daughters. Fortunately the feeling is mutual, I don't want any LDS Republicans anywhere near my kids either. I have no idea, sounds like a job for google!!!! (I want to find out) This is a pdf, it's not their policies but a study done in 1989, and its very interesting. Here's something else, looks like they are neutral: Last one, guess I don't have to boycott the cookies after all: I want to change my td to a tu for Wombat

When you earn badges in girl scouts, does your scout leader buy them to give to you or what?

well the girl scout leader does buy them at the council store, but it does not come out of their pocket. they use money out of the troop account which you guys raised through cookie sales, etc. That's the whole point of fund-raising, to use it on the girls for badges, activities, camping trips.

How can i help the girl scouts?

dress up in a girl scout uniform and help sell cookies

What's the difference between Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts?

Well, aside from the obvious differences (one is for boys and the other is for girls) the scout experience largely depends on who your scout leader is. The programs are actually very diverse and offers so many different types of badges and programs that your child would be exposed to all kinds of things. I was a girlscout for grades 1-9. In addition, my father was a boyscout leader so I had some exposure to that group as well. Both groups go camping, learn about civic responsibility and work on a wide variety of projects that can teach things about practically any field of study. Yes, girlscouts do sell cookies and boy scouts compete in those little car derbies. Any gender-based group is going to have some fundamental differences - but you can never change the fact that boys and girls are simply different. In addition, both groups thrive when the parents are involved. If you help your child with merit badges, offer to chaparone camping trips, etc - you will even further enrich your child's scouting experience.

How old is too old to be in Girl Scouts?

Not too old so go join and have fun. You may only get a few years but its worth the experience. You can stay on as a "Leader" to help new recruits when you get to 17 years or older.

Why are girls allowed to join the Boy Scouts but boys are not allowed to join the Girl Scouts?

Because letting boys into the girl scouts would be sexist to not let girls have a female only group to join. And you can't have a male-only group, that's sexist and oppressive.

Can my homeschooled daughter join Girl Scouts?

I can't see any reason why your daughters could not join Scouts. Scouting is not run by the public school system nor do they receive government funds. They are a private organization, therefor it would be discrimination if they did not allow your daughters to join.

Anyone have ideas on how i could work towards getting the gold award for girl scouts?!?

Rescue and foster neglected animals. It really makes a difference.

There is no replacement for girl scout cookies

When Do Girl Scouts start selling cookies?

This year? Well, here in the United States, in 2010, the annual Girl Scout cookie sale will officially start February 22nd. Stock up! Girl Scout troops can always use the money.

If America is now really strict on calories, then why on earth do we allow girl scouts to sell their cookies?

Because they are crazy delicious- and for those who freak out at the mention of calories they have a low calorie type of cookie resembling the 100 calorie pack type snacks,

Would Girl Scouts look good on my college application?

Yes! Pretty much any organized activity looks good on college applications, as long as you show dedication over a significant period of time - and Girl Scouts and the like are very respectable organizations!

How old do you have to be to volunteer at a girl scouts troop?

You'd have to register as a Girl Scout yourself (even if helping is all you want to do - you don't have to join a troop; you can register as a "Juliette" - an independent Girl Scout). There are a variety of trainings you could take (Program Aide, then specializations within that, Leader In Training) depending on what level you are, or you could most likely just find some local leaders who'd love another set of hands and ideas to help out at meetings if you don't want to pursue GS awards for it. If you contact your local GS Council, they can point you in the right direction if you don't know anyone locally already involved.

When do the girl scouts start sitting outside the stores?

I am starting up with my troop this coming weekend- so yours might come this weekend or next. They are usually out at about 2:00 to 5:30 or so. Hope this helps! P.S. Have you tried Tagalongs? They're my favorite!! :D

Is there a better program to get my daughters involved in than Girl Scouts/ Brownies for adventure?

A Girl Scout troop can be as adventurous as the girls and their adult volunteers. So go ahead and start your own troop, and have all the adventures you can! We have some great guy leaders in our area, they add a whole new perspective and set of resources for all of us.

Who will be helping the Girl Scouts meet their financial goals?

For the past 2 years I can't find any Girl Scout Cookies anywhere...even to the point of seeing if I can order them online. Is that possible? They just haven't been around here and I don't understand it. I love those cookies too.

How much money do you have to pay to become a girl scouts?

Girl Scouts costs $10.00 to register with Girl Scouts USA. You'll need to contact your local council to get a registration form. You can register at ANY time during the year. Depending on your age there are troops for middle schoolers - Cadettes, for fresh/soph in HS-Ambassadors (new), and for junior/senior in HS-Seniors. If there isn't a group of older girls that meet in your area, ask about being a Juliette. They're basically scouts who do the work on their own but are still Girl Scouts. If you join a troop they are lots of fun. Dues are generally monthly and are set by the individual troop but ours are $6/mo. If you sell cookies that puts a good chunk of money into the troop for supplies, patches, trips, etc. Each troop does things slightly different. Trips are like school trips where there is usually a cost but trips are optional usually. So Girl Scouts is really very inexpensive at $10 to start and $6+/- per month. Girl Scout Camps can be $150/wk - $300+/wk but that's for summer camps and TOTALLY optional.

How can you quit Girl Scouts without your leader hurting you?

just quit going. why do you care if your friends mom likes you or not. your friends with your friend, not her mom.

Have Conservatives resorted to fear mongering by demonizing the Girl Scouts?

You dare to talk of this when your ilk banned the boy scouts from any public schools they could not hold their meeting in schools they could not wear their uniform's in school in the insane city of San Fransisco It's liberal crap like this that drives me mad makes me want to arm myself and rid my country of them

What are the requirements for independent(Juliette) girl scouts?

The best answer might actually come from your local council. I have found through the years dealing with Girl Scouts that answers vary council to council. If you have a local website the information might be in there as well vs the Official Girl Scouts of the USA site. I am working with my daughter to have her become a Juliette as well. Good luck and be proud of yourself for sticking with it so long.

What are the girl scouts in Poland called?

In Poland the scouts are coeducationally organized in one Scouting organisation : ZHP, Związek Harcerstwa Polskiego (The Polish Scouting Association). Brownies are called "zuchenki" and Girl Guides "harcerki". See also :

How can you tell the difference between real Girl Scouts and rogue Girl Scouts...?

Can you conservatives stop picking on little Girl Scouts please?

Shhhh!!!! If Republicans boycott the Girl Scouts, it means more Thin Mint cookies for the rest of us! Stopping giving it away!! You're ruining everything!!

Can someone that is currently a senior complete a girl scouts gold award?

You need to finish it by Sept. 30th of the year you graduate (so Sept. 30, 2012 for you). Are you already Girl Scouts? If you are and have completed two Journeys for Seniors or Ambassadors, you may be able to, but it's not going to be easy. Most girls take a couple of years between planning, getting approved, completing the project, then completing the required paperwork afterward. If you haven't done the two Journeys as Seniors and Ambassadors (or finished your Silver Award and one Senior or Ambassador Journey), I can't imagine there's any way you'd be able to finish in time and do a project of any meaning. Find your local GS Council and call it, most have a teen program specialist on staff who can help you figure out how/if to proceed if you don't have a local troop you're working with.

At what age can girls join the Russian Girl Scouts?

You can write a letter or send an email to the Russian Association of Girl Scouts (member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts). Someone there is likely to know English well. Are you or will you be living in Russia? If you are American, you can likely find an American troop located in major cities. Search for USA Girl Scouts Overseas for more information.

How do I keep girl scouts from vandalizing my property?

Are you sure it's Girl Scouts doing it? If so, I would approach them (if you catch them) and ask them which troop they're in and go find the troop leader - they might get kicked out or something. Also, speak to their parents because I bet they wouldn't be pleased to find their daughter doing that sort of thing. Or just call the cops. Install some surveillance video and record it and hand it over to the cops. I've worked with Girl Scouts for YEARS and have a difficult time picturing my girls ever doing that.

What do I have to do in order to earn the Audiovisual patch in Girl Scouts?

What is the minimum age for joining Girl Scouts in Minnesota?

Technically, they are suppose to go by the grade level in the local school system, therefore she isn't suppose to join until next year. Up until a few years ago the official policy went by age as of Oct 1 and not by the local grade/age cut off. The rules are not "set in concrete" and have a little leeway. Your best bet is to contact you local service unit's troop organizer and ask them if there is a troop of younger 5 yr olds that didn't make the K cut off. I would also recommend that if you do get her in a daisy troop this year, that you keep her in for 3 years instead of moving her up after 2. This way she would be with girls in her grade level and wouldn't be the youngest girl in her troop. Unfortunately I have seen troops get held back from doing activities that most of the girls were old enough for because of 1 or 2 younger girls that were place in a troop a level above what their age/grade level would have them at. You can find a link for your local council website at: finder/ Once at the council website look for a troop locator, new member section or service unit directory etc that would get you in touch with the leadership in your area.

Can you join the brownies or girl scouts if your an atheist or a homosexual?

Not true. Boy Scouts has that policy; Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is an entirely separate organization with different rules and guidelines. It is official policy to accept all girls and adults without regard to sexual orientation on the national level. The Girl Scout Promise - which all members have to accept - does include the promise to "serve God," but the organization has added that "the word "God" can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one's spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word "God" with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate." If you don't believe in anything, that's a bit harder (I tend to say "to serve good" since I'm kind of agnostic when I'm not teaching it to girls, just reciting it). The Constitution of GSUSA states: "The motivating force in Girl Scouting is spiritual. The ways in which members identify and fulfill their spiritual beliefs are personal and private." So, atheism is kind of a gray area, but you'll probably never have an issue if you don't make an issue of it (like, your troop won't try to convert you, but if you mock their religions, don't expect them to sit back and take it while considering your non-belief sacred - and vice versa!)

Do the girl scouts have the same discrimination rules as the boy scouts?

No, assuming you are speaking about GSUSA. I can not speak for GS in other countries. Unfortunately the Christian right has attacked GSUSA repeatedly, including spreading bold faced lies, because the Christian right does not believe in equality. I have actually had a mother remove her daughter from the troop and try to get my daughter and me banned from GS since we are Wiccan. Council not only backed me, but I am now heavily involved in our service unit and our local day camp. However to defend BSUSA to a point:I do not agree with their policy and refused to allow my son to participate due to the national policies. However I have learned that locally there is more of a "don't ask don't tell" policy especially when it come to religion. ETA: GSUSA never banned homosexuals, therefore there was never a time when GSUSA opened the organization up to homosexuals. Also "duty to God" was never in the GS promise. To serve God is still in the promise. It has not been removed. It has been about 20 year (no not a couple) since GSUSA issued a statement that God is optional in the promise. GSUSA registration is not dropping either. I see the poster from Boy Scouts knows nothing about GSUSA other than the propaganda spread by American Heritage Girls. Funny how AHG only means of recruitment is to slander GSUSA. I thought lying was a sin, but apparently lying to gain members in a Christian organization is OK.

Where is the Girl Scouts Ceremony for the high school age kids?

I want to know that too, anyone know?

Do the girl scouts uphold the same policies as the boy scouts?

No they do not! They accept lesbian members as well as troupe leaders. They do not subscribe to the same discriminatory policies as the BSA. So Keep buying those Girl Scout Cookies! Besides, they're really yummy! But strangely enough, I still support the Boy Scouts, I just wish they would stay out of public schools. My brother went through scouting and it did him a lot of good. They teach boys valuable life and civic lessons. I my disagree with their policy on gays, but I can't completely be non-supportive of the work they do and the safe place for boys to learn.

Our town Girl Scouts are doing a community project and we need a catchy title?

Paws (pause) for a Cause! Help your best friend! (man's best friend)

Is there an organization, similar to Girl Scouts, but for college aged women or older?

Actually, you can still be a Girl Scout! There is a program called "Campus Girl Scouts" specifically for girls in college. It is a great program! Contact your local Girl Scout council to learn more - if your school doesn't have a chapter, maybe you could start one! If being a Girl Scout doesn't appeal to you, think about being a Girl Scout leader or assistant leader. As you are well aware from your personal experience, many young girls can't be Girl Scouts because there just aren't enough adult volunteers. This would give you the chance to relive what you missed, while providing girls the opportunity that you missed out on! Good Luck!

What percentage of Girl Scout Cookie revenue ends up in the hands of the girl scouts?

This is what I remember from the "cookie crumbles" handout we got last year (these are rounded to the nearest even cent). $.80 - baker $.60 - individual troop. $. 20 (ish) - patches, stuffed animals, other "incentives" $1.90 - the local council (National doesn't get any of this money) So the baker itself only gets about 80 cents per box, the rest stays with the local Girl Scouts.

Girl scouts?????????????

My first year of girl scouts was in 2nd grade. We met twice a week. The day that you met depends on the days in which your troup leaders pick. Yes, I have had lots of fun in girl scouts. But, scouts isn't just about fun, it is about learning, and helping others. Girl scouts is a very open thing so there is definitely something that will spark your interest. Girl scouts can work on badges, charms and award (bronze, silver, gold) No matter what project you are working on it is up to you (or your leader or troop) to decide what you are going to do. Girl scouts isn't very strict when it comes to earning badges, charms, and awards. They will allow you to choose what to do. During the summer there is also Girl Scout camps. These camps are cheaper. So if your family can't afford to send you to a regular girls camp you can go to a Girl Scout camp. I have been to a few of these camps and learned so much there. Not all of it was fun (fell of a horse) but I learned so much and made some great friends. Right now I am a Juliet scout or independent scout. Which means that I don't have a troop, but work by myself. So if you can't find a troop nearby you can be an independent scout. Hope this helps,

girl scouts?

I had this problem with my son being in the Boys and Girls Club karate. EVERY month the students "needed" something new! It got to be about 60 dollars every month. I can't afford that. Talk to you daughter and see what she says. Explain to her that this is an expense that is hard for you to reach. She might understand my son did. Then you can use that money for a sport or some sort of hobby that she enjoys.

Girl Scouts??????

I am currently a girl scout and have been one since first grade(14 now) and basically what you do at our age is help the younger girls with programs and meetings with your troop are just like hanging out with your friends and learning about fun stuff like dancing and cooking and theirs programs with all kinds of stuff like mall lock-ins, overnights,and other stuff but i really like it because it lets me spend some time with friends who don't go to my school...go to idk where you live or i could tell you the district you are in but just get in contact with your local chapter and they can put you into a troop in your area...hope you join!!!!!
