GSHPA Mission Moments


  • The girls of Troop 20078 of York County are saving up to go to the G.I.R.L. 2020 Conference in Orlando, Florida!
  • As we continue to see our world impacted by the spread of novel virus COVID-19, our local Girl Scouts have stepped up to bring some joy to the front lines. Girls across our footprint have asked their communities to make cookie donations to medical, first responder, trucking, custodial, and other essential workers to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication during these challenging times. 


  • Friendly Valley Girl Scouts from Cadette Troops 70569 and 70525 in Brownstown spent Valentines’ Day at WellSpan Cocalico Health Center earning their Baby Sitter and First Aid Badges by participating in WellSpan’s Safe Sitter program. The girls learned how to safely care for children from birth through the early school years, as well as basic CPR, First Aid, how to administer an Epipen, and how to be business smart when running their own babysitting business. Sounds like they really made the most of the holiday!

  • Service Unit Lead Mandi Budman was presented with the Volunteer Appreciation Pin by Girl Scout Belinda Stefl and GSHPA Board Member Kathy McCorkle for going above and beyond the expectations for the troop and exhibiting exemplary service


  • Girl Scout Juliette Mariska of Luzerne County honored service men and women—fallen, active, and veteran—by laying wreaths in partnership with Wreaths Across America at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Tunkhannock, Pa.
  • Lackwanna County troops offered the Outdoor Journey-in-a-Day at Camp Archbald to 102 Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts. The troops taught fire building, outdoor cooking, emergency shelter building, backpack packing, archery, kayaking, first aid, and Leave No Trace principles. All attendees then took part in painting a Leave No Trace mural in Nivert Pavilion as part of their Take Action Project! We love seeing their hard work at Camp Archbald!
