Stores: Curbside pickup by appointment only of preordered merchandise on Tuesdays-Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact store@gsnypenn.org for assistance.

Council Staff: Working at-home and in-office during regular business hours. We’re still here to serve you! Please work with our staff members directly for assistance and to schedule virtual or in-person appointments. 

Camps: Limited on-site council programming by pre-registration only. Check gsnypenn.org/events

Visit Doubleknot and select Property Reservation. At this time, our rentable spaces remain unavailable for non-family group overnight reservations.

Interim COVID-19 Guidance for Returning to In-Person Troop Meetings & Activities

As our council regions across New York and Pennsylvania move through phased re-opening, we’ve created guidance for returning to in-person troop meetings and activities. 

This guidance is being provided as an interim plan for when your geographic area enters Phase 4 (NY) and Green Phase (PA) when a COVID-19 vaccine has not been made readily available. 

We recognize that returning to in-person troop meetings and activities is a decision to be made with careful consideration and one that will happen when the time is right for you and your girls.

Please note that we may modify this guidance from time to time and as circumstances change. 

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily in the community. Please take all reasonable precautions to limit potential exposure for girls, volunteers and families. 

Please refer to these documents to review all aspects and then work with your Engagement Manager to help answer any additional questions or concerns you may have. (Documents are also available on our Forms page.)
