I KNOW A GIRL INTERESTED IN GETTING INVOLVED IN GIRL SCOUTS. IS THERE A TROOP SHE CAN JOIN IN LEXINGTON?
Lexington has many troops for different levels of Girl Scouts. Some troops may be welcoming new members and some are at capacity. Please reach out to Molly Kazin, GSEMA Recruitment Specialist, 617-455-1035 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to see if there is an appropriate troop or to find out how to start a new troop!
THERE’S NO TROOP WITH ROOM FOR MY GIRL (OR THERE’S NO TROOP THAT IS FOR MY GIRL’S LEVEL OR THAT MEETS AT A TIME AND PLACE THAT WORKS FOR OUR SCHEDULE). WHAT CAN WE DO?
If any of these things are the case, there are two things you and your girl can do. The first is that your girl can become an independent member of Girl Scouts. Independent members can do the same things, earn the same awards, and go to the same events as every other Girl Scout. They can come to all Lexington Girl Scout events, as well as sign up for events and camp through Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts.
Another option is to start a troop! The Lexington Girl Scout community of troops, leaders, and volunteers would look forward to supporting you as you expand our reach and make room for more girls to get involved.

I’M INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT GIRL SCOUT CAMP.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts offer camps during the summer, as well as during February and April school breaks. Summer camp has both day-camp and resident (overnight) options. There is bus service to Camp Cedar Hills in Waltham from Lexington. Click here for more info and to register.
WHERE CAN I BUY GIRL SCOUT COOKIES?
Girl Scout cookies are sold from approximately mid-December to early-March each year. During Girl Scout cookie season, you can click here to find a cookie booth near you.
I’M INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING. WHAT IS INVOLVED AND WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT ROLES FOR VOLUNTEERS IN LEXINGTON?
There are many roles for adult volunteers! You can start a troop and be a co-leader of that troop (all troops require at least two leaders), or you can join an existing troop as a co-leader or assistant troop leader. Click here for information about trainings for troop volunteers.
You can also volunteer to teach a skill or craft to girls at a meeting or special event (such as first aid, hiking, photography, robotics or yoga for example.) Volunteering can be a one-time thing or longer. We also need Service Unit volunteers to help lead Lexington Girl Scouts town-wide initiatives.
WHAT IS THE MOST POPULAR GIRL SCOUT COOKIE?
Thin Mints are by far the most popular Girl Scout cookie, followed by Caramel Delights and Peanut Butter Patties.
