Have you heard the news? GSNI is on the move...AGAIN!  
Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois (GSNI) plans to open a new resource center at 3425 Orchard Road in Oswego. The organization has sold its current building at 200 New Bond St. in Sugar Grove and hopes to be operating out of its new location in early 2020. The new center is part of the organization’s ongoing strategy to create Girl Scout locations in the northern Illinois region—in Freeport, Lake Zurich, Rock Falls, Rockford, and South Elgin—with a modern, vibrant store, meeting space for staff, and increased visibility and convenience for families and volunteers. 

Once we finalize our upcoming new location, we will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for local officials, chambers of commerce, and media shortly after our first day of business at the new locations. Grand opening celebrations will be held for all Girl Scout families to officially "open" our new location to the community.

GSNI willl be hosting our ribbon cutting and grand opening celebrations for our new Oswego location in the new year!  Check back soon for more information!

Girl Scout Destination: Space Camp!

11 Nov 2019

Two girls from GSNI’s Cadette Troop 968 applied and were selected to attend Girl Scouts of the USA’s Space Camp Destination this past summer! Troop 968 Leader Liz says, “They had a fabulous time and are already making plans to go back next year!" With the first round of current Destinations being less than a month away on December 1, we’re sharing the difference this Destination made in the girls’ lives in their own words.
