Getting Started
Using the Guide:
  In here you’ll find information about programs designed for girls, families
and adults. We offer opportunities across North Florida, from Jacksonville to
                     Pensacola and everywhere in between!
Let girls take the lead! Help them find the experiences that are just
right for them.
Download the guide and share it with parents and guardians!
Register for events at girlscouts-gateway.org/events.
You can see more details about all the events, programs and training
opportunities, then sign up! Important note: You must register for
events to attend, unless otherwise noted.
If you need assistance with the registration process, call us at (877)
764-5237.
Attend events and programs! Girls can attend events as a troop, on
their own, with parents and with their whole families. You’ll see which
events are open to different groups throughout the guide. Remember:
Girl Scouts is about progression! If your Junior sees a program she’d
love but it’s only available to Seniors and Ambassadors, remind her
that if she sticks with Girl Scouting, she’ll be able to do that program
eventually — and then some!
We’re excited to offer experiences and opportunities across North
Florida, with support staff in every communiy! When you need help
with something or want to share some feedback, please email us at
customercare@girlscouts-gateway.org or call (877) 764-5237.
