Reconnect as an Alum

More than 59 million women in America today enjoyed Girl Scouts during their childhood—and that number keeps on growing as Girl Scouts continues to inspire, challenge, and help empower girls everywhere. By reconnecting with Girl Scouts, you’ll be part of a sisterhood and network of millions who are passionate about the Girl Scout mission, just like you.

Join our Alumnae Association or a special interest group to reconnect with our local network of Girl Scout alums.

Camp Northwoods Alums

Camp Northwoods alums including campers, Counselors in Training (CIT), and staff meet to plan service work and opportunities to promote programming at Camp Northwoods and to keep camp alums connected. They organize a reunion every five years; the most recent being in 2015. In addition to monthly meetings, the group also has a blog, Yahoo group, and Facebook group.

Connections Adult Girl Scout Retreat

Adult volunteers and alums come together to engage in various Girl Scout activities and create connections with their adult peers. For more information on the next Connections Retreat, request an invite to access the secured retreat website or email

Friends Forever

Alums gather monthly for fellowship and breakfast at locations throughout the Twin Cities. A Girl Scouts River Valleys staff member attends meetings to share council updates on events, programs, and activities.

Silver and Gold Friends Club

Alums come together to learn about investing and discuss how to turn investments into financial gifts to Girl Scouts. They meet quarterly in the Twin Cities metro area.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)

Meeting once a month, this group provides opportunities and connections for Girl Scout alums to be life-long STEM learners and mentors.

Second Winds

Second Winds promotes outdoor fun within Girl Scouts. They provide assistance in outdoor skills and programs including planning, implementing, and volunteering at outdoor events like encampments and field days. They chair three large older girl encampments every year, and award scholarships to girls who have been accepted to the Destinations travel program. They meet three times per year in April, September, and December.


Alums from the legacy Greater Minneapolis Council gather for fellowship and the fun of keeping Girl Scout songs alive.

Spookamaga Crew

Members of the Spookamaga Witches Crew join the fun in creating the Spook-tacular extras that add to the excitement of fright sites built by the Girl Scouts. Crew members are needed before, during, and after the event. Visit to learn more.

Tuesday Group and Troop 1976

These alums meet the second Tuesday of the month from 9 am-12 pm at the Brooklyn Center Service Center to provide administrative volunteer support to the council. Troop 1976 alums started meeting after the 1976 National Convention in Seattle and continue to meet over four decades later.
