Why Early Bird Renewal

1 - You get a special patch! All girls and troop leaders who renew between April 1 and May 31 will receive our celebratory Early Bird patch to sport proudly all year long.


2 - You can earn Early Bird incentives for your troop and Service Unit!

3 – You can start making future plans with your girls for ways to have fun, get adventurous and give back!

4 – It keeps the sisterhood you’ve sparked flying high! 

5 – You can assure families that their time and energy selling Cookies is already saving them dough! Use the proceeds from the Girl Scout Product Program to renew all the girls in your troop. They worked hard to earn that money and this is an immediate result!

See... being an Early Bird makes cents! At Girl Scouts of West Central Florida when you renew your membership for next year in the spring, from April 1 – May 31, you’re an EARLY BIRD. And you earn rewards for your flock…we mean troop!

Make Early Bird a tradition in your troop! Renewing every year means that your girls’ amazing friendships and connections will last a lifetime. 

Early Bird Renewal Incentive Guidelines

To be eligible for incentives:

 - Juliettes must renew along with one adult. 

- Troop leader and co-leader must both renew. (Troop leader incentives will be given to a pair of leaders for the same troop). 

-  Troops must renew 80% of their troop roster and two troop leaders. Benchmark percentages are measured based on the number of active girls in troops/service units as of Apr. 1, 2023.  

- Troops, Juliettes, and leaders who win an incentive will be contacted directly by their Community Membership Manager (CMM). 

* Unless otherwise noted, once an incentive is chosen it is no longer available. Subsequent winners will choose from remaining incentives.

Early Bird Testimonials 

I have enough to keep track of, especially at the beginning of the school year, so I love Early Bird renewal because it's one thing I can check off my list before life gets even more hectic.

        - Juliette Mentor

My troop chooses to participate in early bird registration each year to lock in another year of learning, fun, and excitement using their cookie profits so the parents don’t pay a dime for the continued adventures. In re-registering early, each girl receives a patch, the troop gets entered into drawings for additional prizes/experiences, and the task is off the “to do” list from the leader’s point of view.

        - Cadette Troop Leader

We look forward to Early Bird registration each year for many reasons!  The main reason is that we absolutely love the unique patch that is offered for renewing early.  Another great benefit to renewing early is we become eligible to win special incentives that are offered by our council.  I personally look forward to watching the weekly videos when winners are pulled for the incentives.   As a troop leader, it’s also nice to register my troop early so I can use the summer months to plan for the new year.  I love that the girls make the commitment early on to continue their Girl Scout journey! 

        - Daisy/Brownie Troop Leader & SUM

I like when my troop leader renews us during early bird so I can stay a Girl Scout throughout my senior year.  I also like knowing that I can stay with my same troop.  If my troop leader didn’t renew me, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to go to Europe with my troop.

        - Ambassador Girl Scout

My two girls and I do early bird renewal every year to be sure we don't miss out on all the exciting things Girl Scouts has to offer. It's convenient and only take a few minutes to do. 

        - Juliette Mentor

Families are more willing to sign girls into Girl Scouts through the early Bird program.  They feel it’s worth the extra money for the time of year they join.  Some parents wait until after January to register their kindergarten girls.  By that time their daughter is adjusted to their school schedule and can handle other activities.

        - Troop Leader, Service Unit Recruiter

Prepare to Renew

Troop Leaders

Complete end-of-the-year finance reports for your troop(s) and submit them to your service unit. 

Be sure that you have paid all amounts due from the Fall Product Program and Girl Scout Cookie Program.


Confirm parent volunteer roles in your troop (like troop helper, Fall Product Program chair, and Girl Scout Cookie Program chair) so you can lighten your load for next year. Troops with strong volunteer support make for an incredible experience for girls.

Trouble Logging In?

Q: Why isn’t my username working? 
A: Your username is typically your email address. If you have more than one email address, try each. You can also use the “Forgot Your Password?” link to send a reset email to your email address. If you’re still having trouble, contact your council’s Customer Care team.

Q: Why aren’t I getting the password reset emails? 
A: The password reset emails come from, so please make sure it’s added to your safe senders list. If you requested the reset email before marking our email address as safe, check your spam folder. If you’re still not receiving the email, contact your council’s Customer Care team to verify that your username/email address is correct.

Q: How do I reset my password when I no longer have access to the email address associated with my account? 
A: Your council’s Customer Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account.

Q: Why can’t I see my family when I log in? 
A: There are a couple reasons this could happen:

  • Another adult family member may be listed as the preferred contact on the account. That person must log in to renew. Contact your council’s Customer Care team if you’d like to be listed as your household’s preferred contact.
  • You may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to contact your council’s Customer Care team to merge the two accounts into one.

Q: Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in? 
A: There are several reasons this could happen:

  • Troops are listed on a separate tab from your family. If you have more than one troop, look for the pull-down menu to change between them.
  • Check your member profile to make sure you’re listed as a volunteer in the troop.
  • Not all troop volunteers can access the troop tab. Check with your council to see which volunteer roles they allow to access the tab.
  • If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up-to-date.

Please contact Customer Connections for additional support.
