Press Play to Join Girl Scouts of Nassau County Today

The new Girl Scout year is starting and your girl needs to be a part of this exciting adventure!

Garden City, NY (September 17, 2021)—Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) is excited to announce the start of its new year! After a long pause from in-person activities, members can now “press play” to renew their membership. In addition, the Girl Scouts welcomes new members to register and take advantage of the latest programs available. As the largest girl leadership organization in the United States, Girl Scouts offers a variety of opportunities to grow personally and while developing friendships and having fun. Through the Girl Scouts’ STEM programs, outdoor activities, life skills, and entrepreneurship programs, girls become critical thinkers, problem solvers and inspirational leaders who are active members in their communities. Girl Scouts practice teambuilding using hands on skills, help find their passion, and develop their character to pursue future goals and dreams.

“Girl Scouts has always been an organization focused on empowering girls to become their best selves while contributing to their community and those in need. Our dynamic programs allow them to learn by doing while developing leadership skills that will last a lifetime”  said Randell M. Bynum, Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “Throughout the pandemic, Girl Scouts were still able to continue to pursue virtual opportunities; this year, we look forward to not only continuing our virtual programming, but allowing in-person troop adventures as well.

Girls can join a troop based on geographic location—as well as grade level. There are Daisies (Kindergarten through 1st grade), Brownies (Grades 2-3), Juniors (Grades 4-5), Cadettes (Grades 6-8), Seniors (Grades 9-10), and Ambassadors (Grades 11-12). If a troop is unavailable in your community, girls may register with GSNC to take advantage of council-wide offerings and other opportunities.

In addition, new and returning Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to earn any of the 28 new badges this year. The new badges represent new challenges and reflect the rapidly changing world in which girls live. An extensive menu of activities includes Math in Nature, Cookie Business, and Digital Leadership workshops, each with their own badges.
For girls who have not yet joined the Girl Scouts organization, families are encouraged to “press play” and join now!. For more information about joining or renewing, visit or contact
