Most importantly, she’ll have fun!

You can download our fun activity booklet that will guide her through five skill building areas that will help prepare her for Kindergarten, Girl Scouts, and our ever-changing world.

Once you’ve shared this Girl Scout experience with your girl and she has completed her booklet, submit your completion form and we will mail her first Girl Scout patch*.

Girl Sprouts Patch

*Girl Sprouts is for everyone, but the free patch is exclusively for girls in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. Please contact your local Girl Scout council if you are interested in being a part of Girl Scouts in your community!

What Daisies Do
What Brownies Do

Don’t we all wish we could look at the world through a Girl Scout Daisy’s eyes? Everything they do—from planting a garden to putting on a skitto proudly adding that first petal to their vest—sparkles with that "first time ever" newness! Along the way, they’ll use their Daisy exuberance to help others—and they’ll never forget how that feels. Every Daisy meeting is an adventure filled with giggles, energy, and excitement.

As a Daisy, she might:

What Brownies Do
What Brownies Do

Girl Scout Brownies are ready to take on the world, and Girl Scouting lets them do just that! They want to learn new things and show off what they know. They want to explore the world and meet new people. And they want to do something big that makes them feel great!

They get to do all these things and more in Girl Scouts: take that first hike in the great outdoors; visit a science museum; band together as a mighty Brownie team to sell cookies—and use some of the money to help others. Life is good when you’re a Brownie!

Want to meet a real-life Supergirl? Just talk to a Girl Scout Junior who wakes up every day ready to play a new role.

And they're product designers and writers when they earn their Innovation and Storytelling badges. Not to mention change makers, big-idea thinkers, and future leaders. Supergirl, indeed!

What Cadettes Do

Making true-blue friends, saving the planet, standing up against stereotypes, using their team power for the greater good—that’s what being a Girl Scout Cadette is all about.

What Seniors and Ambassadors Do
What Seniors and Ambassadors Do

Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors are ready to take the world by storm—and Girl Scouts will give them millions of ways to do it.

They can travel to amazing places like Costa Rica, Japan, or India; explore exciting careers in a variety of fields, from science to the arts to education to government; take on big projects and help others in a big way. And, of course, they can earn their Gold Award, which (by the way) adds that “little something extra” to their college applications. Seniors and Ambassadors are eager to spread their wings—and Girl Scouts helps them take flight.
