Gateway Council Launches Extended Year Membership

This summer new Girl Scouts can say goodbye to double membership fees

Published Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Girl Scouts of Gateway Council has launched a new extended-year membership program.


For the first time, through the new extended-year membership option now available, those joining Girl Scouts of Gateway Council can register this summer without paying an additional membership fee in the fall.


“Through this extended-year membership opportunity, new Girl Scouts and those wishing to enroll as troop members can seamlessly transition from a summer glimpse of Girl Scouts to a traditional fall troop experience,” said Mary Anne Jacobs, Gateway Council CEO. “This opportunity is a chance to sign up for Girl Scouts early, without having to renew your membership once fall enrollment begins."


With adventures at Girl Scout summer camp around the corner, the extended-year membership provides girls that have not yet joined Girl Scouts a convenient way to enroll in summer camp and in Girl Scouts during the same season. New girls and troop members enrolling in Girl Scouts before July 31are eligible for the extended-year membership offer. 


At Girl Scouts of Gateway Council, girls are encouraged to discover their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ and work together to change the world. Girls learn to thrive by developing a key sense of self, identifying and solving problems, seeking challenges and learning from setbacks. Every experience will encourage girls to lead by example and make the world a better place.

“The idea behind extended-year membership is for girls to get started on their Girl Scout adventure in the summer and then stay engaged for the rest of the year where they can continue to develop into the next generation of female leaders,” said Jacobs.


For more information on the extended-year membership, or to take advantage of this membership opportunity, visit or contact TriciaRae Stancato at or (904) 421-3484.


Now through July 31, when girls and adults join Girl Scouts, they can take advantage of the extended-year membership offer for new members. For a special low price, they’ll receive membership through Sept. 30, 2019. They can begin their adventure right away with camp, start a troop or join in the dozens of activities planned for the summer!

We’re 2.6 million strong—1.8 million girls and 800,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
