Summer is Here!

One Girl Scout year is winding down, as another is about to begin in full force. While Association Award Events ended their course as of June 25, Day Camp is  just beginning, and the first Residence Campers at Blue Bay will arrive next week!

At the Girl Scout Service Center staff are preparing for short-term summer programs for girls that will be delivered at various locations. Some Troop and groups will continue to meet over the summer, and the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Chorus -- on the heels of their successful performances in June in Washington, DC and Niagara Falls -- has July gigs on Fox and Friends, a national TV morning show, on Independence Day and with the NY Mets at Citifield on July 7.

We bid a fond and happy retirement to Pat Amoroso after 15 years of staff service. We welcome summer interns and we are already planning for a new staffing delivery system that will be ready to roll in September, in conjunction with our heightened focus on our Strategic Priorities. And, we are preparing new ways to ensure our Entrepreneurial Programs are ready to deliver on our brand promise to teach girls the "5 Skills." -- Phew!

Lots of work, lots of activity, lots of change. We're open all summer – come visit us!
