Girl Scouts of Central Maryland has been moving ahead forging new paths for 60 years!

In the spirit of our 60th anniversary, we are introducing GSGo! (Girl Scouts Go!)– a guide to a year’s worth of programs and events for girls and volunteers.  We will be providing an abbreviated 1-pager for SU managers at the SU kick-off. *The full guide will be launching in early October.  We will also provide some of the offerings in the August and September Program & Events eblast. There will be plenty of opportunities to GSGo!

Upcoming Events:
