National Convention


The Girl Scout National Convention is slated to take over Orlando, Florida from July 18 - 22, 2023. 

Follow this link to GSUSA’s 2023 National Convention Page for their most up-to-date information and special announcements. Early Bird Registration opens July 20, 2022!

Along with the convention, where Girl Scouts embrace the grand sisterhood by convening with Girl Scouts from all over the country, and where delegates vote on issues in Girl Scouting, the convention will also host the world’ largest girl-led event for girls on July 20-22, 2023.

Hosted by Girl Scouts of the USA, the mega event, aptly named Phenom by Girl Scouts, will provide attendees with unforgettable experiences as they gain inspiration, tools to empower themselves, and the know-how to lead change in their communities—connecting with some of the most influential women in the world along the way. So awesome!

Girl Scouts and Troop Leaders who are ready for long-distance travel are encouraged to plan a Troop Trip to attend this special event. 

Not sure if your troop is ready?  Have your girls, parents and guardians, and troop leaders take the “Am I ready for travel?” quiz on pages four to six of the Girl Scout Guide to U.S. Travel.  If girls aren’t quite ready, know that you should start practicing travel now to prepare by July 2023. 

If your Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming troop expresses interest in attending the 2023 National Girl Scout Convention, complete the 2023 Girl Scout National Convention Interest Form to have your troop leader’s name and contact information added to a list of interested travelers.

View GSMW’s 2023 National Convention Travel Toolkit to help your troop plan and implement your trip to the 2023 National Convention.  Inside, you will find a timeline, budget worksheet, a planning worksheet, and more!
