Looking for a more flexible way to join Girl Scouts? The opportunity has come to join Girl Scouts by Mail.

This new pathway into Girl Scouting offers girls in kindergarten through fifth grade the opportunity to receive age-appropriate programs by mail or email to enjoy at their convenience. The program launches this month and culminates with a face-to-face get together with all Girl Scouts by Mail participants in August. The cost for the program is $24 by email and $30 by mail.
