Virtual Troops

Staff-led Virtual Troops are meeting right now for K-12 grade girls! Learn more about the Virtual Troop schedule and join today! 

Local Troops

By clicking the Join Now button above, you'll be able to search for troops with spots open in your area by zip code! 

Don't see a troop in your area or unsure which one to choose? Complete the Girl Scout Interest Form and a local Girl Scout staff member will reach out to you with opportunities in your area.

Troops are constantly being formed, so speaking with a Girl Scout staff member could be a great way to learn about a troop before it's up online to choose from! If there are no current troops available in your area, your girl can join a council-wide Virtual Troop until we find the right fit for her!

How to Lead Her Troop

It is the support and leadership of caring adults – like you! – who make Girl Scouts possible. As a troop leader, you’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping girls develop crucial skills and confidence to launch them into a lifetime of leadership.

You can start a troop in 4 easy steps!

  1. Register as an adult member.

  2. Complete a criminal background check.

  3. Attend a New Leader Orientation webinar.

  4. Meet your local Service Unit team for Introductory training.

Financial Assistance

At Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ (GSCSNJ), we are invested in every girl. We believe that every girl who wants to be a Girl Scout can be a Girl Scout, regardless of financial situation. To help welcome in every girl and adult member, GSCSNJ offers financial assistance, also referred to as Council Cares, to those in need.  

GSCSNJ welcomes every girl and volunteer, regardless of their income. We make funds available to cover the following:

  • Membership fee
  • Programs
  • Uniform supplies
  • Summer Camp fees
Financial Assistance Requests are accepted year-round.

Each financial aid application is reviewed by GSCSNJ. The amount of funds granted will vary based on need and available funds. GSCSNJ Council Cares funds are limited, and resources are used wisely to assist the greatest number of eligible members.
