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.
All GSOFCT Shops and Service Centers will be closed Monday, September 15 for a staff day.
Our phone system will also be updated from 8:30-11:00 a.m. on September 15. If you are trying to leave a message for a staff member and cannot get through, please try again at a later time.
