Behind every Girl Scout and volunteer is a team of local staff ready to help them earn that next badge, embark on a camping adventure, or organize an impactful service project. That’s what a Girl Scout council is. We are here to maintain camp properties and provide local Girl Scouts with skills-building workshops and resources to achieve whatever they can dream up.
Founded in 1913, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York (GSGNY) is New York City's largest girl-focused leadership program, reaching over 25,000 members ages 5 to 18 in every zip code of the five boroughs. With the help of thousands of volunteers and our generous supporters, today’s Girl Scouts enjoy programming focused on business and entrepreneurship, the outdoors and environment, advocacy and service, STEM and digital leadership, and so much more.
