Waiting for a troop?

There's still so much you can participate in and so many ways to explore Girl Scouts! You can be a part of a troop or even work on badges on your own! Check out all the Girl Scout fun you can have below!  



As a Girl Scout, you can participate in any of the events our council has to offer! We offer program events based on every one of our four pillars: Outdoors, STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math), Life Skills and Entrepreneurship. 

See a list of all of our council events here >>

Explore Patches

We offer so many fun and educational patches for girls in grades K-12 to wear on the back of their vests or sashes to show off all of their fun activities! These Patch Programs were created for our Council, and were developed to provide girls at any level a variety of activities and experiences. Any Girl Scout from any Council can complete the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast’s Patch Programs. 

See our Explore Patches here>>


You can work on earning badges by yourself while you wait for a troop placement! Just pick up a Journey book from the Girl Scout shop and start working! See how to start earning badges on our badge page!

You can also view available troops in your area by logging onto your My GS account! Under your girl's name, select 'Add/Change Troops'. This will take you back to the 'Ways to Participate' page and provide you with the Opportunity Catalog of available Girl Scout troops near you. You can use the radius selection to increase the options by going 5, 10, or more miles from your zip code. If you find one you like, feel free to select that troop and let us know.
