Get Involved

Girl Scouts is a way of life that brings out the best in your girl, even in the most challenging of times. While she’s learning about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; entrepreneurship; and important life skills, she’s also discovering new ways to make your family and community stronger, kinder, and better for everyone. Plus? Girl Scouts is FUN!

Ready to Join?

Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada is thrilled to welcome you and your girl! Membership dues are just $35 annually for a girl member ($25 for an adult), but financial aid may be available. Whether you have questions about starting a new troop for your girl and her friends, joining an existing troop, or something else, call us at (775) 322-0642. We’re here for you!

Your new friends can't wait to meet you.

Right now, Girl Scouts are meeting furry friends at their local animal shelters, giggling past lights-out at sleepovers, and learning how their favorite roller coasters work.

Above all else, they’re having a blast—because they know bringing the fun is all about being their true selves, trying new things, and cheering each other on.

Get ready to join the crew and bring a bit more happy to your life.

Registration Tips & FAQ's

Want to learn all about Girl Scouts and find out what you have to look forward to with GSSN this year? Check out the Girl Scout Family Connection.

Here is some information about Membership Dues, Finding a Troop to Join, all about becoming a Juliette (Individual Member), and more to make the registration process as smooth as possible.

Membership Dues

The annual cost to join Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada is $35 for a girl member and $25 for an adult member.

The cost includes:

  • $25 membership dues, all of which goes directly to Girl Scouts of the USA to support the movement at the national level
  • $10 council service fee* (for girl members only), stays with Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada to support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) at the local level

*While many councils throughout the country have charged a council service fee for years, GSSN has resisted until this year. This fee will enable GSSN to continue offering quality programming, from a dedicated staff, year-round. 

**Note: Membership and fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.**

We offer Financial Aid for both Girl and Adult members. Click here to learn more.
