PowerPoint Presentation

Free backpack with Starter Kit

If you’re just starting out in Girl Scouts — or moving up to the next level — get all the basics in a Starter Kit. Kits include a girl Journey book, Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting, official uniform (vest, tunic or sash), flag patch, council ID set, membership pins and troop numbers. Plus, you'll get a free Girl Scout backpack with your kit. Available for all program age levels.


The distinctive Girl Scout look

Today's girls keep to the iconic elements of the classic Girl Scout uniform ... with a few modern twists, in step with trends and active lifestyles. Girl Scouts wear one required element (tunic, sash or vest) to display pins and awards. They can mix and match pieces from the official collection to complete the uniform, or wear with their own wardrobes.


Camp kits

These daypacks are filled with fun (and useful) additions to the summer camp experience! Order when you register for camp, or through stores. Pick up your kit at your local shop or at check-in on your first day of camp, available in stores after May 15.
