Girl Scouts At Home

As a Girl Scout, you’re part of your troop, council, and the nationwide Movement. We can’t be together in-person, but we can be together in spirit and stay connected to our sisterhood online. Troop meetings are amazing, but being a Girl Scout doesn’t stop there. You have a promise and a law in your heart—so, no. You #CantStopGirlScouts! 

GSWPA At-Home Activities for Girls

We've been so excited to see how you're continuing Girl Scouts while you’re at home. Send pictures and videos of your girls working on virtual activities to socialmedia@gswpa.org or on Facebook messenger. We’ll be sharing your pictures and videos on our social media channels, and you can, too! Use #CantStopGirlScouts.
