Join Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York
Girl Scouts is renowned for offering the best leadership development experience for girls. When a child becomes part of a Girl Scout Troop, they are able to explore, discover, and be themselves in a safe and encouraging space. Whether they're adventuring in the great outdoors or selling cookies, Girl Scouts will be learning skills that will last a lifetime.
Formed in 2007, Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York (GSNENY) believes in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world and accomplish anything. They are committed to:
- Serving more girls within the region and reducing/eliminating any waiting lists of girls who have signed up to be involved with Girl Scouting
- Reaching out to girls in rural areas and decreasing the barrier of distance for girls to participate in Girl Scout activities and educational programming
- Continuing to set the example of leadership and self-determination that are an inherent part of the Girl Scout program
- Increasing programs at the council level around advocacy, culture, environment, healthy living, the outdoors, and STEM
- And more!
GSNENY operates out of three offices: the Albany Service Center, the Queensbury Service Center, and the Plattsburgh Service Center.

Think your child is ready to get involved with a local Girl Scout Troop? GSNENY has the resources to help you find an open Troop in your area.
In addition, the organization schedules hundreds of events and activities for girls, Troops, and families each year at locations council-wide and beyond.

There are three day camps offered in the Capital Region, and two overnight camps offered in Lake George and the Adirondacks. Each one is girl-led and allows campers to develop creative thinking, leadership, and decision making skills.
