GIRL SCOUTS OF SOUTHERN

NEW ENGLAND (GSSNE)

Girl Scouts offers girls in kindergarten through twelfth grade the opportunity to build character and skills for success in the real world in an accepting and nurturing all-girl environment. Joining a troop is a great way for your daughter to form friendships, participate in group
activities, and learn teamwork, leadership, and decision-making skills. The GSSNE Girl Scout Leadership Center is located at 500 Greenwich Avenue in Warwick, Rhode Island. The Center incorporates high quality programming in the areas of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), making a difference, life skills, travel and adventure, camping and outdoor skills, and global citizenship. There is also a Girl Scout Shop at the Center, open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM, and on Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM.
There are several other ways for girls to customize their Girl Scout experience, including registering individually to participate in a program, attending an after-school program in one of the urban communities we serve, and attending summer camp. While participating in the many programs GSSNE offers, girls discover who they are and what they value, increase their skills and responsibility, connect with others, build courage, confidence and character, and take action to make the world a better place.


Volunteers are also encouraged to sign-up.

As a volunteer, you’ll help introduce girls to new and exciting experiences. No matter how busy your schedule is, there is an opportunity to be a role model for girls, ranging from sharing a skill once, to leading a troop short-term, or joining in on the fun year-round. Leaders are often parents of the girls, but this is not a requirement. Training and background checks are required; welcome and support are provided. For more information, please contact

In January, Rehoboth Girl Scout Troop 750 visited Mullen Bros. Jewelers in Swansea.  The scouts learned about diamond cut and clarity, jewelry lines, and the ingredients for a small business to be successful for over 100 years.  Thank you to Mullen Bros. Jewelers for sharing your knowledge with our scouts!





Rehoboth Animal Advocates met Rehoboth seventh grade Girl Scout CadetteTroop 247 during the Harvest Block Party last fall. They asked if the girls would be interested in a service project with their work for feral cats. The troop collected a lot of cardboard boxes from their school (D. L. Beckwith Middle School), their parents, and Sturdy Memorial Hospital. The girls broke the boxes down, traced 4 different sized templates, and labeled each accordingly. So far, they've measured and cut out between 225-300 cardboard liners! Those pieces of cardboard will be used as liners on the bottom of the cat traps to protect their paws, as well as used during their recovery, if needed, in the cats' hospital crates after any needed care or procedures. Great work, girls and RAA.



Rehoboth & Seekonk Brownie Girl Scouts painted snowmen under the guidance of Seekonk-based Painted Ladies.  The scouts are working on their Brownie Painting Badges.  Thank you to Rehoboth Congregation Church for providing space for this wonderful event!



Rehoboth Girl Scout Daisy Troop 628 made centerpieces for the Rehoboth Animal Advocates spaghetti dinner fundraiser.  The scouts enjoyed making the centerpieces as well as contributing to the safety of animals within Rehoboth.







Rehoboth Girl Scout Daisy Troop 628 joined other Daisys from Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England in January at Camp Hoffman in West Kingston.  The scouts participated in story time, decorated tiaras for themselves and their dolls, sang songs, made placemats, ate cucumber sandwiches, and drank tea.  





Rehoboth Girl Scout Brownie Troop 494 and Daisy Troop 628 took part in Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England's Cookie Rally to start off Girl Scout Cookie sales. They had a fun afternoon with their families participating in Girl Scout Cookie themed events followed by watching a Providence Bruins hockey game.
