Event Registration Walk-Through
Registration Assistance
If you have issues with registering for events through your MyGS account, please fill out this form to let us know what issue you are experiencing.
Here from another Girl Scout council?
Welcome!

Though it is possible for Girl Scouts from all over Florida and beyond to register for GSWCF events, you may have difficulties doing it through our website as your membership information is confidential and we don't have access to it. If you do encounter any issues, please contact your local council so they can help you with the process.

Can't find your event?

We can only display a few of our many great events on this page at a time, so some of the events that are open for registration can only be found using the search bar below.

Still can't find it? Sometimes our events don’t show up on this list right away, but you can always find them by logging into MyGS and searching there.

Planning an event for your Troop?

In addition to our council planned events, you can also arrange an event for your troop by using our County Resource Guides! Each guide has a list of resources in each area that provide engaging activities that will help you customize your troop's Girl Scout experience!

 

Program Request Form

Do you see a program your troop would love to participate in, but the date conflicts with your schedule? 

Fill out our new Program Request Form and we will reach out to our program partners to see if they can accommodate your troop's schedule. Upon receipt of you form, a member of the program and events team will contact you within 10 days.
