Since 1912, Girl Scouts has helped Connecticut's girls build courage, confidence and character. While we have always remained true to Juliette Gordon Low's vision, we are constantly evolving. That's why we say we're 100 years young! Join us, and see how Girl Scouts discover themselves as they explore their world, connect with others and take action through activities and programs that are relevant and exciting to girls today.
From July 10 through August 28, GSOFCT Service Centers will be open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and Friday 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. GSOFCT Shops will also operate on summer hours from July 1 through August 28. Visit the shop site for hours and locations.

of the pool, and the curiosity to discover which trails to explore.
