What are virtual Girl Scout troops?

Girls in grades K-12 can stay connected to Girl Scouts across the council, nation, and around the world by bringing the exploration, fun, and learning of Girl Scouts right to your home! Even when circumstances are keeping Girl Scouts from meeting up in person, there are still lots of different ways to stay involved and engaged. After all, Girl Scouts isn’t somewhere girls go or something they do—it’s who they are day in and day out. 

As troops start to meet in person and when you and your girl are ready, we will work to find a troop that fits you and your girl's needs or you can stay part of the virtual troop and continue your at-home Girl Scout Experience.

Girls in virtual troops will earn badges and patches and participate in Girl Scout traditions—just like they would at any troop meeting—all from home. Virtual troops will meet at least once a month with a ton of fun at-home and council activities available to girls. 

When will virtual troops meet?

Once you register in a virtual troop, you will receive an email invitation (double check your spam folder) for your virtual troop Rallyhood page.  Here you will be connected with girls from across the council that are also participating virtually. On the Rallyhood, you will find links to your troop meetings, council activities, and more resources.  

And in the meantime…..

You're invited to attend a FREE event to discover more about Girl Scouts.  Join us at an upcoming sign-up event to learn more about being a Girl Scout family! Here your girl will make new friends, learn Girl Scouting basics, and start her first adventure! No Girl Scout membership necessary!

How much does it cost to join a virtual troop?

Joining a virtual Girl Scout troop is like joining any in-person troop!  Annual membership dues are $25. Financial assistance is available so that every girl can benefit from the Girl Scout experience.
