Early Bird Starts April 1st, 2020
Early Bird Renewal is an opportunity for a head-start on the next Girl Scout membership year (2020/2021), all while earning fun rewards!
By renewing early, caretakers can make sure their daughter(s) will secure their spot in the same troop for the upcoming year. Plus, it will be one less item on your very full list when fall arrives and you’re deep into back-to-school mode.
This year, the Early Bird Renewal period will run from April 1st, 2020 until May 15th, 2020. Renewing during this time period will guarantee free rewards, only offered during this time frame.
*No financial assistance will be offered during the Early Bird campaign.
Early Birds can look forward too...
Bridging is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life. It’s a defining moment when a Girl Scout becomes aware of her achievements and is ready for new adventures and responsibilities as she levels up in Girl Scouts. Celebrating this change should be fun, personalized, and memorable for everyone involved.
There are five opportunities to Bridge. Our Girl Scout Shop makes the transition easy by putting together pre-made bridging kits. Contact the shop, 1-800-960-2093, to purchase a kit today!

Each girl that renews during April 1st - May 15th will receive the second patch progression for the 2020-2021 Girl Scout year.
Each member that renews between April 1st - May 15th will receive one t-shirt in their size while supplies last. This year we decided to create a shirt that represents our council with both pine trees and a body of water (pines to the gulf).
You will receive an email 12-48 hours after renewing, requesting your shirt size. Those who do not submit a size will not receive a shirt. If you do not receive the email requesting shirt size within 48 hours of renewing please let us know at email@example.com
*t-shirts are while supplies last
Those without a shirt size submission will not receive a shirt. The form will also be emailed out between 12-48 hours after you renew.
Deadline for filling out the form is May 18th, 2020.
Renewing your membership with Cookie Dough?
Cookie Dough is a benefit earned through participating in our Girl Scout Cookie Program. By reaching goals, girls can earn monetary rewards in the form of Cookie Dough. The money earned can be spent in the council shop, used to register for council events, and most importantly, it can be used to register for the 2020/2021 membership year! Financial Assistance is not offered during the Early Bird program, so by using Cookie Dough you can still earn all rewards.
There is a 3-5 day turnaround time on all Cookie Dough renewal requests, so make sure to fill out the form ASAP to earn time specific rewards.
Cookie Dough does have an expiration date. The Cookie Dough that you have earned from the previous cookie sale expires in April each year. Early Bird Renewal can be an opportunity to use funds before they expire.
