GOING ON AT GIRL SCOUT COUNCIL

Volunteer With Us

Our incredible volunteers are crucial to the Girl Scout leadership development experience, providing them the tools to think creatively and act boldly! No time for long-term volunteering commitments? No worries! Whether you have time for a one-time event, just a few hours a month or much more time to share, we have a volunteer role for you! To volunteer with us, browse our opportunities or contact Heather Eyster, Program Manager for more information on short-term volunteer opportunities.

Incredible Early Renewal Incentives

When you renew your membership starting April 1-30, you can earn some incredible incentives including a limited edition patch, a shop discount and the chance to attend our big family event at the Saint Louis Aquarium on June 3 and 4!

This year we have an amazing Troop Experience for those who have renewed at least 70% of their Girl Scouts for 2021. Learn more about these experiences and get ready to choose your own adventure!

Camp Update

Girl Scout Camp season is just around the corner and we are excited to report Resident Camp registration is already pacing ahead of last year!!! This means even more girls will have the opportunity to benefit from this pinnacle camp experience.

Your interest and dedication makes it possible to operate three beautiful camps that offer amazing adventures to Girl Scouts in our region—and beyond.

We are immensely grateful! Please keep the registrations for camp coming because, without a doubt, camping is a great way for girls to build leadership and life skills and develop a deep appreciation for nature. You know what we say: Camp Life is the Best Life!

Sign Up for Day Camp

Girl Scout Day Camps are the perfect way to start a new summer tradition, try new things, make lasting friendships and experience exciting places! Open to girls going into Kindergarten through 8th grade, you can find a Day Camp near you using our Day Camp Map! Register your girl today.
