North Plainfield Girl Scouts

Welcome to the North Plainfield Girl Scout Service Unit! 

Our Program

At Girl Scouts, you’re going to have tons of fun, make new friends, and go on fantastic new adventures.  Our program centers on something called the "Girl Scout Leadership Experience".  This model engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place.  

Girl Scout experiences are also, as much as possible, girl led and encourage learning by doing (experiential learning), and cooperative learning.  Along the way you’ll participate in exciting activities as you earn badges and awards, sell cookies, go on exciting trips, explore the outdoors, do Take Action projects that make a difference, and more.

At Girls Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure we'll go on together.  With us, you'll make a bunch of new friends and have a lot of new experiences that will show you just how exciting the world is and just how amazing you are.

So what are you waiting for?  



Claim your spot for another year of fun and keep the adventure going!

Who can be a Girl Scout?

Any girl in grades K–12 can join the fun at Girl Scouts. Whether you want to be part of a troop, sign up for exciting series or events, explore the outdoors, or travel the world, each age level has something for you.

Girls are placed in the appropriate grade level according to what grade they’re in at school.

Here is more information on Grade Levels.
