Explore the world of Girl Scouts! 

Girl Scouts of Orange County is here for all girls. We are champions of girl ambition, fueled by an unstoppable drive to remove all barriers, so that all girls, from every social, cultural, economic, intellectual, and developmental sphere, and those with physical limitations, can experience the life changing benefits Girl Scouts provides her to dream big and do bigger. 

  • What is Girl Scouts? 
    Girl Scouts isn’t just a moment in her life, it’s a movement dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

  • Why do families – and local communities – love us? 
    Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in girls, even in the most challenging of times. While learning about STEM, the outdoors, entrepreneurship, and important life skills, girls discover new ways to make their family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone.

  • How does it work? 
    Groups of Girl Scouts, called troops, typically meet weekly or biweekly for an hour or two. Guided by adult volunteers—often parents and caregivers—girls select exciting hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each other on. Together, they earn badges to reflect their successes and show the world what they’re made of.

  • What’s the goal? 
    Making sure girls see and have opportunities to reach their potential isn’t just about helping them earn better grades, make better decisions, and lead happier lives (though it helps with those things too!). It’s about creating a more fair, equal, and compassionate world where every girl has a seat at the table and can make her dreams come true. 

  • Financial Aid?
    We know families may be financially impacted. We want to make sure you know that you can request assistance with membership dues, uniforms, and camps.
