Schedule Your Own

Do your Girl Scouts have a busy calendar? Schedule your own badge workshops, program events, and other activities using our resources!


Programs in a Box

Troops, groups, or individuals can check out one of our many “Programs-in-a-box” from our Resource Centers to help complete a badge or even just to make planning and prep easier for troop leaders! During the Summer of 2018, GSNI updated and revamped many Programs-in-a-Box.

Reservations are required for all Programs-in-a-Box. To make a reservation for pick up and drop off, contact Customer Care at 1-844-GSNI-4-ME, or email

Schedule your pick-up a minimum of three weeks prior to ensure your items are ready for you. At the time of scheduling, you will also make your appointment for returning the item(s). Items will not be available for check out on a “drop in” basis.

At pick up, you will be required to pay a deposit. Deposits can only be made by credit/debit card. Deposit costs vary. Deposits are returned in full if all items are returned in good condition and on time. If items are missing or damaged, additional damage/loss fee will assessed. The late fee is $1 per week day.

If using an item for a large group, service unit event, or camp, please contact Customer Care to schedule a Programs in a Box consultation.  All deposits and fees are applicable.
