What's New


Fall property reservations are now available.

Whether your troop is ready for a one night stay at Balboa or a full weekend away at Winacka, we can’t wait to help you get back outdoors at our beautiful Girl Scouts properties.  Activities such as archery and fishing are available without an instructor. For property reservation questions or assistance, email For support planning your troop’s getaway, email to connect with your Troop Support Specialist. We can’t wait to see you!


New Training Requirement

As of January 2022, California law requires that organizations who work with youth provide additional protections for the youth they serve. As a result, mandated reporter training (a.k.a. child abuse prevention training) is required for troop leaders and assistant troop leaders as well as other volunteers who work directly with girls for at least 16 hours a month or a minimum of 32 hours per year. Mandated reporter training is available online. And, if you’ve already taken mandated reporter training elsewhere, that works. Just let us know. Request or report mandated training.
