Scouting provides programs for young people that builds character, trains them in personal responsibility and helps them develop citizenship and personal fitness. Central Synagogue is home to Girl Scouts Troop 809, Cub Scout Pack 31 and Boy Scout Troop 214.
Girl Scouts are sponsored at Central by Sisterhood. Girl Scout Troop 809 is a Senior Level Girl Scout troop with girls of high school age.
Girl Scouting is for every girl, everywhere—where today’s girls can become tomorrow’s leaders. Membership in Girl Scouts is open to girls in grades K- 12; women and men over 18 can join as adult members. Rockville Centre Girl Scouts has a membership of 750 girls and 200 adult volunteers and Central Synagogue is proud to be part of that community.
Most girls join a local troop or group for fun and friendship, but they also find out about building character and self-esteem and serving their communities—the core qualities of Girl Scouting. In Girl Scouts, girls find a safe place to grow and share new experiences, learn to relate to others, develop values, and contribute to society. Girl Scouts encourages making healthy choices, careers in science, technology, engineering & math, financial literacy and advocacy.
