Local Girl Scouts plan new member sessions

There’s a place for every girl. Become a Girl Scout. Join Girl Scouts during our 100th Anniversary year for an experience like no other.

All families are welcome to come learn more at their local Girl Scout new member events on:

• Sept. 26: 7 p.m., Isanti Intermediate School Gym
• Sept. 27: 7 p.m., Cambridge Intermediate School Café
• Sept. 28: 7 p.m., Isanti Intermediate School Gym
• Sept. 29: 7 p.m., Cambridge Intermediate School Café

Girl Scout membership is $12 per year. They believe all girls deserve the opportunity to be Girl Scouts and offer Grants for Girls to cover all or part of membership fees. No girl is turned away for inability to pay.

Girls throughout the Twin Cities metro area, southern Minnesota, and western Wisconsin discover new talents, connect with others, and take action to make their communities better through Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys gives girls in grades K–12 access to hundreds of fun and challenging council-sponsored program events, day camps, resident camps, trips, and community service projects.

There’s a place for every girl in Girl Scouts. Girls experience a variety of activities in areas including career exploration, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), financial literacy, outdoor skills, and healthy living. In the city, the suburbs, or the country, Girl Scouts has something for every girl.

100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts

Now is a great time to join or reconnect with Girl Scouts. March 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of Girls Scouts and River Valleys has a lot of fun planned for the program year—including the Great Girl Gathering @ MOA, where Girl Scouts will take over the Mall of America for a fun-filled, weekend-long event celebrating the past, present, and future of Girl Scouting.
