Who Can Attend An Event?
All girls are invited to attend Girl Scout programs as long as she is in grades K-12 and a registered Girl Scout. If she is not registered, we ask that you complete a Membership Registration Form and submit all membership fees in addition to event costs. You may attend with your troop, bring a friend or just come join the fun with your fellow Girl Scout sisters!
How do I register an individual girl or troop for a program?
All registrations are handled through council unless otherwise noted in our event listings. Further instruction for this type of vendor registration will be listed with the event details. For council-run programs, please use the Event Registration Form (215-PM). When completing your registration form, please be sure to include the name of the event for which you are registering and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions call 302-456-7150 and ask for the Event Registrar. You may also mail your form to our Newark Resource Center: 225 Old Baltimore Pike, Newark, DE 19702.
A minimum of two registered adults (unrelated) must accompany every troop to an event, unless otherwise noted in the event description. Please consult Volunteer Essentials for exact ratio information. Individually registered girls must be accompanied by one adult. When a program specifies that adult attendance is not required, a medical release form and parent permission slip must be provided to the program leader. Our primary goal is to provide quality programming to girls. As a result, there may not be space available above the
