About our Council

We’re Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada and we’re excited that you’re here! As your local council, we’re your guide and partner to all things Girl Scouts and we can’t wait to get you started.

But first, you may be wondering a little about us…so here’s what you need to know:

We BELIEVE… in the power of girls. From her first troop sleepover with her very best friends to hiking the top of Mount Rose to designing her own adventure - our girls find the sparkle that makes them special. We think that’s pretty cool.

We CONNECT…over 96,000 square miles in northern Nevada and northeastern California. That’s Alturas to Tahoe to Bishop, Ely to Elko, and everywhere in between. We have girls and volunteers experiencing new adventures every single day and making friendships that will last a lifetime. Teamwork, friendship, and community unite us and we shine so much brighter when we’re together.

We GET INVOLVED…in our communities hundreds of service projects are completed each year! Our girls and volunteers change the world through small acts of kindness and through BIG ideas that make a lasting impact. Serving meals at a soup kitchen, singing holiday carols to bring cheer, and collecting donations for pet shelters are just a few of the awe-inspiring projects that show a girl she can make a difference in the world.
