ABOUT THE SITE

 

This website built for the Girl Scouts of Cranford was established in the Fall of 2013 to assist Cranford Girl Scout Advisers, Leaders, Girl Scouts, and their parents quickly access information about scouting in Cranford.

 

This site only focuses on Girl Scouting in Cranford and opportunities that are available to members locally. I truly hope that this will be a helpful tool when planning out your 2013-2104 year. If you have a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Award program that you would like promoted, let me know and we will get it posted so that it may be shared with the Cranford community.

 

Please keep in mind that Girl Scouting is so much bigger than just a troop experience or a Service Unit experience. Support from council, the Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey, is also valuable. You should visit their website for what they have to offer such as required adult training and fun programs for girls of all ages.

 

GSUSA is our national organization. Visit their website for all kinds of great updates about Girl Scouting nationwide. Did you know your troop can complete other councils' badges or travel to and use other councils' camps? As an older Girl Scout member you can take advantage of Destinations program.

 


I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Jorge Santos for the hours of programming he completed to get this site up and running over the summer evenings of 2013. I must also thank Jillian and Desirée, Cranford Cadette Girl Scouts, for their artwork which breathed life into the site.

I know you will have many ideas for additions to this site and I welcome your suggestions!

Your Sister in Scouting,
