  • Girl Scout membership is open to all girls K-12, potential volunteers (female and male) and Girl Scout alumnae who accept the Girl Scout Promise & Law and pay national membership fees. Financial assistance is available. Please call 704.731.6500 or email for more information.
  • Membership fees are $20 per year and are non-refundable and non-transferrable. The Girl Scout membership year is October 1 – September 30, but individuals who register in August and September are granted membership through the following September 30.
  • Girls must be registered Girl Scouts before participating in a Girl Scout program or event. Adults and alumnae must register before serving in a volunteer role.
  • Membership does not guarantee troop placement. All troops are volunteer-led; therefore, troop availability is dependent upon available volunteer leadership. Do you want to make Girl Scouting possible for girls in your area? We’re happy to help you start a troop! You can set the meeting day, time, location and troop size that works best for you!
  • Membership DOES guarantee that a girl can participate in programs throughout our 8-county footprint, earn badges or patches, participate in the Product Program (Cookies!), and attend summer camp.
  • Once member registration is complete, you will be contacted by a Girl Scout staff member within approximately 4-6 weeks due to the heavy volume of inquiries from August – October.
  • Are you ready to join our journey? Please complete the appropriate membership registration form and mail it to Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council, Attention: Registration at 7007 Idlewild Rd., Charlotte, NC 28212, along with the $20 membership fee/per person. Welcome!
