Don't Miss Out on the Fun!
We hope everyone is enjoying their summer! As we begin to prepare for a new Girl Scout year, please ensure the following:
  • Renew participating Girl Scout memberships for the 2022-2023 year.
  • Ensure contact information, including mailing address, email and phone number, is updated for each participating Girl Scout member in the household.
  • Update acting Girl member profile to include their school name and grade.

You can review and make updates on our website anytime by selecting MY GS and logging into your account. Our team is available to lend a hand at customercare@gsgcf.org.
Help us Name our Mascot!
Mags & Munchies is Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida's fall product program where girls develop entrepreneurial skills running their own nut, candy, and magazine business.
 
Often thought of as Girl Scout Cookie's younger sister, this financial literacy program allows girls to flex their business skills while developing the five essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
 
This year’s 2022 Mags and Munchies Program Mascot is a Hawaiian Monk Seal! Fill out the form for an opportunity to name and WIN this year's mascot! Be on the lookout for the complete information packet to arrive in the mail in a couple of weeks.

Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors
The cool touch of water as you dip your foot into a lake. The breeze tickling your face as you take your first urban hike. The warm sun on your face as you practice the backstroke at the Camp Honi Hanta pool. It’s all part of the outdoor experience—one that’s waiting for every Girl Scout.

Discover what green and gray spaces are and learn how to get outdoors no matter where you are with these new and revamped GSUSA programs. Check out our council's own Climate Change activity and earn a custom patch!
