Scarsdale Edgemont Girl Scouts Service Unit supports Girl Scout Troops K-12 in the Scarsdale and Edgemont school districts in Westchester, New York. It is part of the Heart of the Hudson Girl Scout Council which is made up of Westchester and 6 counties to the north and west of us.
Girl Scouts mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Most girls join a local troop or group for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society.
The Girl Scout program is based on the needs and interests of girls. All members:
Troops are run by adult volunteers. Prospective leaders undergo a background check and receive training before they can register as troop leaders. Leaders set the programs and activities and meeting days and places of their troop, and can draw on Girl Scout grade-appropriate courses to take the girls on ‘Journeys’ to discover more about themselves, their community and the world around them.
Brownies – for girls in 2nd and 3rd Grade
Juniors – for 4th and 5th Grade
Cadettes – Grades 6-8
Seniors and Ambassadors – High School
If your daughter is interested in joining a Girl Scout troop in Scarsdale or Edgemont, we will try to place her with a troop as soon as possible, based on space availability.
Start the process by emailing our Recruitment Coordinator. Please include the following information:
Parent phone and email address
Grade and school
If your daughter has been a registered Girl Scout previously, provide the Town, Troop #, etc.
Placement in troops is not guaranteed, and is wholly dependent on space availability in existing troops. Parents are encouraged to volunteer as scout leaders to ensure that their daughters, and their classmates, can enjoy the troop experience. If volunteering as a leader is not possible for a parent, there are other ways for a girl to participate in Girl Scouts and we are happy to discuss those alternatives with you.
If you are willing to be a leader or co-leader to support your daughter’s interest in Girl Scouts, please contact our Recruitment Manager.
