The Tuckahoe/Eastchester Girl Scouts have been "Making the world a better place" since 1921, when women in the Tuckahoe and Eastchester communities decided to arrange Girl Scout troop programs for the girls of the area. Since then, the Tuckahoe/Eastchester community has continued to live up to the vision of Juliette Gordon Low's original vision: to bring girls together to learn and grow.

The lease for the Girl Scout cabin expired late last year, and as of July the Town of Eastchester had not renewed the lease. The Journal News covered the story on their front page on August 1. We were also featured in a story on CBS Local! Thankfully, the lease was updated and then renewed. Additional information is on our Save The Cabin page.”
This year, we celebrated six seniors receiving their Gold Awards, the highest award in Girl Scouting. In a ceremony at the local high school, the recipients were given the opportunity to share their projects with the community as well as their close friends and family.
An exciting birthday was celebrated this year: the 100th birthday of Girl Scouts! In addition to having a birthday celebration within the Tuckahoe/Eastchester community, many of the Tuck/East volunteers were part of Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson's celebration at Westchester County Center!
The day featured dozens of activities for girls, in addition to music, speakers, and an award ceremony for Gold Award recipients from the entire council area.
