Important Girl Scout News- Membership Dues to Increase in 2017-18 Membership Year

Dear Girl Scout Members:

Every day in Girl Scouts is a different kind of exciting! Whether girls are having a science-tastic sleepover under the stars, programming their own robot or planting trees in a park, girls are learning that they can be and do anything while building a circle of respectful and compassionate friends.

When compared to other extracurricular activities, the wide variety of experiences girls are exposed to in Girl Scouts is a tremendous value. For instance, consider that:

  • Intramural youth sports cost upwards of $100 for a single season,
  • Gymnastic classes in Statesville or dance classes in Asheville cost around $60 per month, and
  • Horseback riding at stables in Winston-Salem or Gastonia costs $45 for a single 30-minute lesson.

With these comparisons in mind, recognizing costs for things like insurance have increased and recognizing the powerful impact Girl Scouting has on girls and the community, we hope you will understand that Girl Scouts of the USA’s National Board of Directors has voted to increase the Girl Scout membership dues to $25 per year beginning October 1, 2017. This does not impact the 2016 troop year, which begins October 1, 2016 or the Early Bird registration that begins on April 1. At roughly $2 per month, Girl Scouting will still be one of the most reasonably priced, life-changing experiences for girls in North Carolina, and one of the most valuable investments anyone can make in a girl’s life.

Girl Scouts of the USA has provided the following information:

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail our council at info@girlscoutsp2p.org  or call 800-672-2148.
