Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
The Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital (GSCNC) is a leadership development organization for girls, with 90,000 girl and adult members: 63,300 girls (grades K-12) and 26,700 volunteer, adult and lifetime members. With the support of dedicated adult volunteers and parents, the generosity of corporations and foundations, and our popular Girl Scout Cookie program, Girl Scouting helps build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. We serve the Greater Washington Region, which includes the District of Columbia, eight counties in Maryland, ten counties in Virginia and seven counties in West Virginia. Girl Scouts was founded in 1912, and to celebrate the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital hosted the largest gathering of Girl Scouts in Washington, D.C. on June 9, 2012 at Girl Scouts Rock the Mall: 100th Anniversary Sing-Along.
Our main office is located in Washington, DC. We also have satellite offices in Frederick and Waldorf, Maryland; Leesburg, Lorton, and Manassas, Virginia; and Martinsburg, West Virginia.
