Why Virtual Troops?
Over 300 new girls joined the Virtual
Troops during Summer 2020 and we anticipate many more joining
Due to this overwhelming interest in the Virtual Troops during the
summer, GSCSNJ will be running this 4-6 week, staff-run, Virtual
Troops for girls new to Girl Scouting!
What will girls do?
We will have planned activities for your girl to follow, along with
other girls from across New Jersey! She will earn badges, develop
leadership skills, make new friends, and become part of the Girl Scout sisterhood.
Will girls have the chance to join
local, traditional troops?
Once the 4-6 week Virtual Troop activities are complete, girls will
transfer to local, volunteer-run troops that may meet online or
in-person depending on the then current local health guidelines.
During the Virtual Troops, some girls find local troops that they
would prefer to switch to and they are more than welcome to do so!
The Virtual Troop is designed to ensure every girl receives a
great Girl Scout experince from day one.
