San Mateo County, CA | Girl Scouts Welcome Troop

Get started in Girl Scouts in San Mateo County by joining the Welcome Troop!
What is a Welcome Troop?
This temporary, starter troop is open to girls in grades K-3 and are led by Girl Scouts of Northern California staff and experienced local volunteers. Girls will participate in virtual troop meetings experiencing a variety of Girl Scout activities including Girl Scout traditions, games, songs, and community service, while adults learn how to run a Girl Scout troop.
Our Welcome Troop meeting dates are on February 23rd, March 9th and 23rd, April 6th and 20th, and May 4th for 30-45 minutes. After attending one free meeting to try the Welcome Troop, you must register as a Girl Scout to attend future meetings.
Each meeting ends with a short adult meeting to answer questions about Girl Scouts, plan the subsequent meeting, and choose roles.
As an adult, you will connect with other families in your community and our staff or local volunteers will guide you through the steps of starting a new troop.
After your first trial meeting, girls and adults must be registered as Girl Scouts to participate in future meetings. One adult from each family must complete an electronic background check. Financial aid is available for any girl.
