Girl Scouts Club

Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere - where today's girls can become tomorrow's leaders. Scouting is open to all girls and young women whatever their religion, ethnic group or background.

Most girls join for fun and friendship, but they also find out about buidling character and self-esteem and serving their communities - the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.

Membership is open to the KAUST community. If interested visit us at the Community Clubhouse.

Girl Scouts Troop

KAUST Girl Scout Troops consist of two or more adult volunteer leaders and minor girls/young women. Troops are divided by grade level with each group engaging in age-appropriate activities.

Meeting times/locations are organized at the beginning of each year.
Contact the troop leader directly to enroll.

Girl Scout Volunteers

The club relies on volunteers to successfully impact the next generation. Volunteering opportunities are available all year round from helping in one meeting as a Guest Speaker to a Troop Leader. Other roles could be an Event Coordinator, Assistant Troop Leader, Treasurer, or Secretary. For High–School children these are great opportunities for Services for the Community.


Frequently Asked Questions


Do KAUST Girl Scouts leave the KAUST Campus?
MOSTLY NO.  Regular meetings, campouts, and cookouts occur on the KAUST campus. Any off-campus activities are completely optional.

Do KAUST Girl Scouts sell US Girl Scout cookies?
NO. It is too expensive to ship cookies from the US to Saudi Arabia. However, girl scouts are allowed to sell homemade baked goods within the community.

Do KAUST Girl Scouts go camping?
YES! KAUST community is supportive of IN community campouts – at the beach, stadium or back yards. The Troop holds an annual girl-only camp out at the beach once a year for girl scouts of all age levels. Individual girl scouts can camp more frequently as the schedule allows.

How much does it cost?

USGSO Association requires annual registration of 169 SAR ($45) per girl.

Vests are purchased by the family at cost (no profit) and vary by level but within price range 95-110 SAR.

Badges and awards are purchased by the family at cost and range in price from 4-20 SAR each. The number of earned awards will differ by level.

The KAUST  Girl Scout Troop has opted for the vest or sash and pin tab uniform. The color is different for each level. This basic uniform is available for purchase at cost.

The vest or sash is normally worn over a white shirt with blue or brown bottoms (not provided). However, a girl is considered “in uniform” when wearing only the tab.

Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing, go on fantastic new adventures and change the world. As such, no girl will be denied access to Gils Scouts overseas because of an inability to pay the cost of memberships.

Assistance is also available for the vest or sash and the cost of activities. Please let the leader know if you need assistance. It will be kept confidential.
