Re-connect and Re-discover
Remember the taste of your first s’more? Or the first time you confidently sold a box Girl Scout cookies? How about your favorite badge or that life-changing experience that gave you confidence to try again?
Whether your last troop meeting was yesterday or 20 years ago, whether you were a troop leader or staff member, you are a Girl Scout. From one Girl Scout to another, you can give today’s girl a leadership experience that will change her life forever.
The GSEP Alumnae Association welcomes all current and former Girl Scouts, including alumnae from all nine counties we serve in Eastern Pennsylvania: Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, and Philadelphia counties! We also welcome Pennsylvania transplants. A wide Girl Scout network awaits you! Email us with your name, address, and how long you were a Girl Scout and we’ll add you to our alumnae committee!
