We’re so glad you’re coming to an Animal Dance Party!

The events are free and held over Zoom – pick a date that works for you and RSVP to get the meeting login information. Although designed for new members, current Girl Scouts are welcome to attend and encouraged to invite a new to Girl Scouts friend!

For this party your girl will need a blank piece paper and something to write with; crayons, markers and/or pencils.

Girls, Want to get the fun started today? Try this!

Imagine you’re a grasshopper or a ladybug. How do bugs like those see the world? Do little rocks seem big? Do blades of grass seem super tall? Now put on some music. How do you move or dance differently now that you’re a bug? 

Now pretend you’re a bird that can fly high above the earth, a giant elephant with a swinging trunk, or even a household pet. How did your dancing change?

We’ll learn about lots of animals and find fun new ways to dance together at the party!

Girls, Want to get the fun started today? Try this!

Imagine you could build any kind of robot you wanted. Would it be a robot that could make your life more fun, easier or both? What would it do and how would it work? It’s up to you! 

Now, use crayons, colored pencils, or markers to draw a diagram of your robot. A diagram is just a fancy word for a picture with labels telling you about the different parts of something. 

At the party, we’ll learn a lot about robots—and build one too! Can’t wait to see you!

Make New Friends – grades K-1 – Virtual

Make New Friends is a fun, four-part online series designed to boost your girl's social skills and self-confidence while she learns to focus and thrive in a group virtual setting. This series allows her to connect with the same friends each week, as well as Girl Scouts staff and volunteers who lead her through activities focused on language & literacy, cognition, and social and emotional learning. It’s a great chance to experience what it’s like to be in a troop before officially joining a troop too! Once registered, you’ll receive a link for the Zoom meetings and additional details regarding supplies for each session (supplies will be simple household items).

The Make New Friends program will return in March.

Join a Troop near you

Most girls participate with a group of girls of about the same age, known as a troop, that is organized by adult volunteers. In a troop, girls earn badges for each new skill they learn and challenge they overcome. Badges are grouped into four areas—outdoors, entrepreneurship, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and life skills.

Become an Independent Girl Member

Being an IGM Girl Scout simply means you are not affiliated with a Troop. That can change at any point in time – it’s up to you!

Not every girl’s experience in Girl Scouts is the same–you can customize experiences to meet your unique interests. Mix and match special events, weekend workshops, leadership projects, work on awards, or travel.

All girls in grades K-12 can register as an IGM, and participate in everything open to her grade level.
