Got more questions? Read on or get in touch with us to help you get started with your Girl Scout adventure!
What do Girl Scouts do?
At Girl Scouts, your girl will prepare for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure in a safe, no-limits place designed for and by girls!
How? Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—a collection of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, going on awesome trips, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects.
At Girl Scouts, she’ll get to lead her own adventure (it’s her world!) and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the exciting, hands-on activities that interest her most. Along the way, she’ll gain important skills in four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
The Result? A Lifetime of Leadership!
In fact, being a Girl Scout helps girls thrive in five key ways. As a Girl Scout, she:
• Develops a strong sense of self
• Displays positive values
• Seeks challenges and learns from setbacks
• Forms and maintains healthy relationships
• Learns to identify and solve problems in her community
Delivering Fun with Purpose
To bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life, activities are led by girls themselves, feature cooperative learning, and highlight learning by doing. Girls come up with their own ideas, build teams, and experience the joy of making a positive impact.
What age does Girl Scouts start?
5 years old and up. Our Scouts in Hong Kong range from Reception 2 / Kindergarten through Grade 12.
How much does joining Girl Scouts in Hong Kong cost?
Short answer: about HKD 2,600 for the year for a one Scout family.
USD 45 per girl for a one year membership with our council, USA Girl Scouts Overseas.
USD 25 per adult for a one year membership with our council, USA Girl Scouts Overseas.

HKD 500 OC Fee per girl. We collect a member fee at the local level to offset the cost of fun patches and awards, level event subsidies and administration costs. Our bigger events, like Camp or Father Daughter Dance, carry an additional per person charge to offset the expenses of running the event.
Troop Dues - each troop leader sets how much they wish to collect over the year to offset troop expenses. In the past, this is typically HKD 1,000 per girl.
