Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) Programs

 

Register to Participate in GSNC Programs

 

Girl Scouting offers girls the opportunity to explore their skills and interests which will inspire them to reach their personal best through a variety of fun and enriching leadership experiences. But more importantly, no matter where or how they participate, girls get the necessary guidance they need from adult volunteers and council staff to develop their leadership skills and understand how those skills can be used to make a difference in the world.

Rather than just meeting in a Troop setting, Girl Scouts in Nassau County have the opportunity to participate in events and programs.

Before registering for a GSNC Program, please review important registration information.

Click on the name of the event that interests you to learn more and to request placement. Completion of the online request is NOT a guarantee of placement. Cookie Credits can be used to pay for any of these programs.

PLEASE NOTE:

Healthy Living InitiativeAny programs that feature the Healthy Living Initiative Symbol are programs that are considered to be in line with Girl Scouts of Nassau County's Healthy Living Initiative.

The Healthy Living Initiative brings a unique perspective to keeping girls healthy. Girls define health in their own terms, placing as much emphasis on emotional and social well-being as physical health, nutrition and physical fitness. In addition to healthy eating and physical fitness, the Healthy Living Initiative focuses on increasing girls’ self-esteem, media image awareness and how to develop healthy relationships.
