In the past, members who joined Girl Scouts later in the membership year had to pay the full membership fee again soon after their initial purchase if they wanted to continue with Girl Scouts into the fall.
This frustrated many members, but now we have good news! For the first time ever, through the new extended-year membership option available May 1, new girl and adult members can register for a 17-month, $35 prorated membership that allows them to begin Girl Scouts during the summer and then transition right into their traditional troop experience in the fall without paying double membership fees. It’s seamless—and a pretty sweet deal!
For new girls, extended-year membership provides the ultimate opportunity to get started on their Girl Scout adventure in the summer and then stay for the whole year. And it lets new adult members complete their onboarding process and maybe even begin recruiting for their new troop in the summer!
