Girl Scouts at Home

We know that this is a challenging time for Girl Scouts—staying home from school away from friends is a significant change in their routine that can make them feel disconnected. At Girl Scouts, we are fortunate to be able to continue offering the same quality programming to girls, volunteers, and families virtually for at-home enrichment experiences.

The unique and far-reaching Girl Scout sisterhood experience will help us stay connected during these unprecedented times.

School may be canceled.

Meetings may be canceled.

Practice may be canceled.

But Girl Scouts is not canceled.

GSCSNJ is proud to offer new badge activities, virtual programs, and resources for girls and families to engage with from home regularly. 

 
All materials and live programming is available to the public.
No Girl Scout membership necessary!
