We’re over 55,000 members strong – girls and adults – who believe that every girl can change the world.
We’re part of a sisterhood of 2.8 million around the globe. It all began more than 100 years ago with one woman, Juliette Gordon Low, who believed in the power of one girl. We continue her vision of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. At Girl Scouts, we believe that there’s a chance for every girl to do something amazing.
We are Girl Scouts of Connecticut.
Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
We became Girl Scouts of Connecticut on October 1, 2007, but there has been Girl Scouting in Connecticut since 1912. Our council covers the whole state!
You can find us at our main business office at 340 Washington Street, Hartford, or in your local Service Centers. Four of those Service Centers have retail shops where you can pick up the Girl Scout gear you need.
Any questions? Give us a call at (800) 922-2770.
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
* Feel free to replace the word "God" with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Girl Scouts is committed to inclusion of all girls and makes every effort to provide access to Girl Scouting in a variety of locations and formats so that every girl who wants the opportunity can be a Girl Scout.
