Girl Scout Collapsible Drinking Cups

This page is dedicated to Dale Reed, early Girl Scout.

Not seen much anymore, the Girl Scout Collapsible Drinking Cup was an essential part of every Girl Scout's hiking and camping event. Today, these have been replaced by sports bottles.

First offered in the Spring of 1931: 

Cup donated to the Vintage Girl Scout Online Museum by Shelley Marcy. This cup was originally owned by Dale Reed, early Girl Scout, who has left us to go on her last hike.

The only difference appears to be a change in the product number.

The gold-lined cup with a handle disappears by 1933


The Girl Scout Collapsible Drinking Cup disappeared from catalogs by 1941 and did not reappear until 1946 with the rare clear plastic version:

The 1949 version remained unchanged through 1962.

The GS logo on the lid changed in 1963.

Good to know it can double as a pill box!!!!

Lid changed to contemporary logo.
