With the help of over 8,200 adult volunteers and our generous supporters, today’s Girl Scouts learn to lead with courage, confidence, and character to make their communities and the world a better place

The Girl Scouts of Greater New York works in one of the most diverse cities in the world, and thus, we value and embrace reflecting this diversity in every aspect of our work.

Our Council seeks to enhance society and to prepare our girl members to make the world a better place by ensuring they learn not only about themselves, but also about acceptance, tolerance, and appreciation of other human beings.

Breaking the Code in March

Breaking the Code in March March 18th-March 22nd (6th-12th Grade Girls)

Girl Scouts of Greater New York is hosting a camp called “Breaking the Code” that is a weeklong coding, filmmaking, and leadership camp. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what programmers do and what kinds of careers could be open to girls interested in computer science or STEM fields. Hosted at Microsoft office girls will have a chance to have a conversation with current employees on what they do and how they got there. They’ll also use their voice and learn about advocacy and film their very own public service announcement! Previous topics for PSA’s have covered everything from ocean pollution to animal abuse. The camps are open to 6th-12th grade girls and part of this amazing program is that it is not only open to Girl Scout members, but non-members as well. We highly encourage girls to bring a friend to attend camp with them!
