You can join Girl Scouts by yourself. This type of membership is known as an Individually Registered Member (IRM). Individually registered members are also known as Juliettes, named after our founder, Juliette Gordon Low. Juliettes choose how to participate based on their schedule and interests.
Joining as a Juliette is great for a Girl Scout without a troop available nearby or who wants to enjoy Girl Scout programming with their family. They can get started right away by earning badges independently or attending events to meet other Girl Scouts in their area.
A badge signifies that a Girl Scout completed all the steps needed to earn this recognition for new skills learned. Each badge takes a Girl Scout through the steps of learning about a skill, practicing it and demonstrating it. Badge topics range from the outdoors or STEM to art or career exploration. They’re a great way to try something new and see if you enjoy it.
Love being outdoors? Follow your passion and sign up for weekend camping trips as a Juliette. Camp as often as you want and meet other Girl Scouts who share your enthusiasm for the great outdoors.
Expand your horizons by spending a week at camp in the summer or exploring local state parks. As a Cadette, Senior or Ambassador (grades 6–12), you can even explore the United States—or the world!—by traveling to other Girl Scout camps.
