Girl Scouts is not on hold.

Whether virtually or in-person, Girl Scouts continues to help girls grow strong, resilient, and adaptable through the COVID-19 pandemic, rather than putting life, learning sisterhood, and building friendships on hold.

From the youngest Girl Scouts at 5 years old through their teens, Girl Scouts equips the next generation of female change-makers with the breadth of knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to take charge and do good for the world, both now and in the future—and with fun and exciting adventures.

Virtual and in-person troops are now forming. To join Girl Scouts parents of girls should do the following based on the communities in which they live:
