We are members of USA Girl Scouts Overseas. We welcome girls and adult volunteers of any nationality as long as they speak and understand English well.
- We generally meet on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, 1:30 to 3:30pm, although some events will be on different days so please keep an eye on the schedule. During July & August we run informal trips only.

- The second meet is often an outdoor event/visit /activity.
