How can I ensure a successful class experience?
 

  • Register early! Classes fill up quickly, so online registration is best.
  • Don't wait till the last minute to take classes. Allow some time to put tools to work with your girls.
  • No drop-ins! Materials are prepared according to number registered.
  • Not sure if you are registered or need to cancel? Email customercare@sdgirlscouts.org.
  • On the day of your class, feel free to bring drinks and snacks. Arrive early so that class can get started on time.
  • Please arrange childcare — we cannot accommodate children.
  • If for some reason you cannot attend, please let us know so that someone else can take your spot.
