Join Girl Scouts of Orange County

We're so glad you're interested in joining Girl Scouts of Orange County! Please attend an in-person Information Night to learn more about Girl Scouting and join a troop.

At Girl Scouts of Orange County, the possibilities are endless, and she'll make a bunch of new friends who just can't wait to go with her. With her Girl Scout troop, she'll find out she's capable of more than you ever imagined. 

Our program helps girls thrive in five key ways. As a Girl Scout, she:

• Develops a strong sense of self
• Displays positive values
• Seeks challenges and learns from setbacks
• Forms and maintains healthy relationships
• Learns to identify and solve problems in her community

Come to an Info Night to hear more! We have several Discover Girl Scouts Info Nights coming up. Select the drop-down menu below to find an Info Night near you. All Info Nights are family friendly and free to attend. 

Attend an Info Night Near You

We're thrilled you want to attend a Parent Information Night!

Here's what you can expect:
You'll be greeted by a Girl Scouts of Orange County Volunteer and/or Staff Member who will give you and other caregivers an introduction to Girl Scouts, answer all of your questions, and help you and your girl join a local troop. New troops are often formed immediately following the info session. You'll be in and out in an hour, with all of your questions answered and ready to begin your Girl Scout journey!

Below are dates and times of our upcoming Info Nights. They are completely free to attend, and your entire family is welcome to join. No need to RSVP, just show up and we'll be ready for you. See you soon!

While our Info Night Events are primarily held at Elementary Schools, they are for Girl Scout Troops forming in all levels (K-12th grade).

What can parents expect?

Girl Scout meetings. The frequency of troop meetings is set by the Troop Leader, however, typically a troop will meet on a bi-weekly (every two weeks) basis, or once a month. Make sure she arrives and is picked up on time for all group activities.

Parent participation. When you volunteer or participate in Girl Scout activities with your girl, you’re helping her find awesome activities and amazing new experiences, make new friends and become more confident, and discover new skills and explore new interests in a safe, nurturing environment.

Your involvement and support will help shape your girl's experience. She will see your commitment to her growth, and before you know it, you'll be growing too. 

What is the cost to join?

The annual cost to join Girl Scouts of Orange County is $35 for a girl member and $25 for an adult member.

The cost includes:

  • $25 membership dues, all of which goes directly to Girl Scouts of the USA to support the movement at the national level
  • $10 council service fee (for girl members only), stays with Girl Scouts of Orange County to support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) at the local level

*During the registration process, if you cannot find an open troop near you, you have two options: you can either select “Unsure” or “Independently Registered Member.”

If you select "Unsure," a membership specialist will contact you to help identify an available opportunity. 

If you select “Independently Registered Member,” you will register your daughter as a Girl Scout Independent (GSI). A GSI is a great way for girls to get involved with Girl Scouting outside of the traditional troop model.
