Girl Scouts at Home

We want all Girl Scouts to be able to feel engaged and inspired anytime, anywhere. Whether you’re a brand new Girl Scout family, already doing Girl Scouts on your own, or looking for more activities to do with your troop, Girl Scouts at Home offers ways to stay connected with other Girl Scouts. Participants in the programs below can try STEM activities, explore the outdoors, build life and leadership skills, make a difference in their communities, become cultural advocates, and more—remotely!

There’s always something new to explore. Check back often for the latest program opportunities that Girl Scouts can participate in remotely or have mailed to them directly.

For Current Girl Scouts

It's easy to stay engaged and inspired with Girl Scouts! Our remote program offerings below offer young people exciting opportunities to learn and thrive wherever they are—whether at home or on the go.

Live and Self-directed Online Programs

Girl Scouts of all ages can earn badges and Journey awards online; learn about the Highest Awards; explore cultural advocacy, the outdoors, and STEM; and make a difference in their communities through these self-guided and live online programs.

Scavenger Hunt Badge Series

Participants can earn badges and more through an exciting interactive app, GooseChase, that allows them to complete missions at your own pace at any time throughout the month. They can also connect with other Girl Scouts to see how their peers are tackling the same challenges! GooseChase can be used by troops, families, or individuals both at troop meetings and at home. Sign up.

Monthly Round-up Meetings

Join GSEMA staff and volunteers online for a monthly gathering of Girl Scouts from across eastern Massachusetts! Participants engage in exciting hands-on activities to make new friends, learn new skills, and discover Girl Scout traditions. Each month’s meeting focuses on a new Girl Scout tradition, activity, or theme, and provides a sneak peek of upcoming program opportunities for Girl Scouts to explore during the rest of the month. Registration is for the full series—just sign up once to attend as many meetings as you like!

Mailed Program Kits

Our mailed program kits can help your Girl Scout or troop explore STEM and the outdoors, learn important life skills, earn badges, and more—all from the comfort of home. All program kits are available at the Waltham GSEMA Shop for pick up or delivery.
