Who We Are
Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast was formed in October 2007 by the merger of two great Girl Scout Councils with rich histories: Girl Scouts of Monterey Bay and Tres Condados Girl Scout Council. Chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA to provide Girl Scouting in the counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura, GSCCC encompasses some of the most beautiful and environmentally significant parts of the country. The council has a growing membership of over 10,400 girls, and over 5,600 adult volunteers who are the heartbeat of Girl Scouting along the central coast.
With service centers in Castroville, Atascadero, Santa Maria, Goleta and Ventura, Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast offers points of access for volunteers to come together. The Alisal Program Center in Salinas provides an important after school program for girls funded by community supporters, while the Camp Arnaz Program Center in Ventura offers a beautiful 36-acre camp, outdoor and program facility to serve girls, troops and Service Units, as well as other community organizations.
Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast is committed to making Girl Scouting available to girls in ways that impact their lives both in the moment and into the future. Girls participate in troops, individual projects, council events, day camps, and more. A variety of leadership, outdoor skills, and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) based programs and events provide girls with opportunities to learn and explore in fun and informative ways.
