Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia is rich in heritage and purpose. The council extends from the North Georgia mountains to the Okefenokee and from the Atlantic coast to the Chattahoochee Valley. Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia serves more than 8,000 girls and 3,000 adults in 122 counties across Georgia as well as two counties in South Carolina and one county in Alabama. Our council’s footprint is more than 48,000 square miles! Also, GSHG is the home of our organization’s founder, Juliette Gordon Low. “Daisy” founded Girl Scouts on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, where her birthplace and the historic First Headquarters still welcome thousands of Girl Scouts every year.
Our council is divided into six regions, and we have seven service centers and four camp properties around the state: Athens and Gainesville in Region 1, Augusta and Camp Tanglewood in Region 2, Savannah and Camp Low in Region 3, Albany in Region 4, Columbus and Camp Robert Lewis in Region 5, and finally, Macon and Camp Martha Johnston in Region 6.
Each region is then divided further into Service Units - a county or cluster of counties where neighboring troops can collaborate! Each Service Unit has a Service Unit Leadership Team (SULT) composed of parents, troop leaders, and other Girl Scout adults who share responsibilities for their area. If you'd like to get involved with your Service Unit, reach out to your region's membership team and we can help connect you!
