We have over 300 girls in 32 troops encouraged and led by over 50 adult volunteers. Girl Scouting begins in Kindergarten with our Daisy Girl Scouts and continues through high school.
RVGS has enjoyed participating in our River Vale Town Day, "River Vale Day." Last year's coat drive held was a huge success. Our town-wide program includes our always popular Halloween party/ trunk or treat. This costume extravaganza is open to all children and is run by RVGS as a community service. There are games and a fun time for all.
We also run a themed Sweetheart Dance in February that is open to non Girl Scouts. Our Spring Banquet is a Girl Scouts Only special event. We celebrate the season with dinner and dance the night away. Girl Scouts has been well represented for the last few years in our River Vale Memorial Day Parade. Troops work hard making banners and having a great time marching.
Community service is an important part of Girl Scouting. Our individual troops hold food and clothing collections throughout the year. Many people are helped through their efforts and the girls learn the value of caring and sharing. Our troops enjoy arts and crafts, exploring nature, cooking and traveling.
