Renew Your Membership for Another Unforgettable Year!

Strength, resilience, togetherness, and the support of community - that's what Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay is all about. So in this uncertain world, you can count on one thing for sure: today, tomorrow, together, we are on your team. 

When you stick with Girl Scouts, you're not just giving your girl something to do, you're giving her someone to be. The bravest, boldest, best version of herself. The version of herself that walks with her head a bit higher and acts with confidence. 

And as she grows, we'll grow with her, guiding her through life's ups and downs, supporting her strengths, and showing her new and exciting paths to take.

Verify Your Email Preferences

Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay extended our Early Bird Renewal season through the end of August 2021 due to an unforseen issue with email communications. The unfortunate issue caused by the data migration was the unintentional opting-out of emails for some of our membership. We encourage you to verify your email preferences by logging in to MyGS.

General Renewal FAQs

How much are membership costs?

GIRL MEMBERS

Membership fees for girls K-12 are $45.00.

$25 is Girl Scout registration fees, this is what every Girl Scout pays nationally to be a part of the Girl Scout Sisterhood. And $20 is Council Service Fees. The 2022 GSCB Council Service Fee has increased.  Over the last year we have worked diligently to create more events, activities, and overall opportunities both virtual and in person (with even more to come!), at a free or reduced cost to our membership. These type of membership perks are directly funded by the GSCB Council Service Fee and generous donations.

As of April 1st, 2021, the GSCB Council Service fee will be increased from $15 to $20. Financial Assistance is available by selecting "Request Aid" during checkout. 

ADULT MEMBERS

Membership fees for adults/volunteers are $25.00. 

Lifetime Membership is also available to adults, learn more here.

Trouble logging in to My GS?

Q: Why isn’t my username working?
A: Your username is your email address. If you have more than one email address, try each. You can also use the “Forgot Password?” link to send a reset email to your email address. If you’re still having trouble, contact GSCB’s Member Care team.

Q: Why aren’t I getting the password reset emails?
A: The password reset emails come from noreply@girlscouts.org, so please make sure it’s added to your safe senders list. If you requested the reset email before marking our email address as safe, check your spam folder. If you’re still not receiving the email, contact GSCB’s Member Care team to verify that your username/email address is correct.

Q: How do I reset my password when I no longer have access to the email address associated with my account?
A: GSCB’s Member Care team can easily change your username/email address without requiring you to recreate your account.

Q: Why can’t I see my household when I log in?
A: You may have a second or duplicate account with a different email address. Try a different username. If that works, be sure to contact GSCB’s Member Care team to merge the two accounts into one.

Q: Why can’t I see my troop(s) when I log in?
A: There are several reasons this could happen:

  • Troops are listed on a separate tab from your household. Select the “My Troop(s)” tab to see your troop(s). If you have more than one troop, select the appropriate Troop tab to navigate between them.
  • Check your “My Household” tab to make sure you’re listed as a Co Leader in the troop.
  • Not all troop volunteers can access the troops information in their MY GS. At GSCB only Troop Co Leaders have access to the “My Troop(s)” tab.
  • If your background check has expired, you may lose access until it is up-to-date.

GSCB’s Member Care team can provide any additional support. Please email MemberCare@cbgsc.org or call 800-341-4007.
