We know you're busy, so you can choose your own path to becoming a “real” Girl Scout. Sign up for an outdoors series designed to perfect your hiking skills, learn how to swim at a session of summer camp, help plan a group trip and travel overseas, collect donations of socks and underwear for a Project Undercover event, join an afterschool troop – or do it all. You decide the pathway that's right for you.
Girl Scouting welcomes all girls, grades K–12 who agree to:
Our council – Girl Scouts of Rhode Island – serves girls who live in Rhode Island and in Attleboro, Bellingham, Blackstone, Fall River, Millville, North Attleboro, Plainville, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Somerset, Swansea, Westport and Wrentham, MA and in Pawcatuck, CT.
Whether you're a Girl Scout Daisy or a Girl Scout Junior depends on what grade you're in:
What makes a great Girl Scout year? Earning badges, hiking and camping, taking field trips, selling cookies, and enjoying Girl Scout traditions. Now you can tie all that together with a choice of three “leadership journeys”.
On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do - whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply -- is aimed at giving girls the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action.

No, but you'll probably want to! It's big! Nationally, 200 million packages of Girl Scout cookies are sold each year – that's $700 million dollars worth! From its earliest beginnings to its current popularity, the sale of cookies has helped Girl Scouts have fun, develop valuable life skills and make the world a better place by helping to support Girl Scouting in their communities. Girls are proud that their efforts provide resources for their local Girl Scout councils and for their own Girl Scout troops/groups.

Girl Scouts at each level have just one required element (tunic, sash or vest) for the display of official pins and awards. Wear your tunic, sash or vest with your own solid white shirt and khaki pants or skirts. This uniform is required when you participate in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scouts That's it!
During the month of September, we organize a series of registration events in communities throughout our service area. These events offer a great way to meet GSRI staff and volunteers and get your questions answered. Click here to find the event closest to your home.
However, you can register any time of the year by completing a Girl Registration Form or by calling us at 401.331.4500 or 800.331.0149.
