Welcome to the
Farthest North Girl Scout Council

      COVID-19 and Girl Scouting

      – UPDATED september 27, 2021 –

      A sincere and sober message to our membership,
      Covid-19 cases in our community are at an all-time high and proving very deadly. As we have heard, the highest rates in the nation. As such, we are taking measures at the Girl Scout office immediately for everyone’s safety. Starting Monday, September 27th, our office will be observing contactless transactions and a self-serve lobby, one customer at a time. The front doors will be locked and customers will be allowed in one at a time. Directions regarding these procedures and a phone number will be posted on the doors. We will be utilizing our pickup table in the lobby as much as possible and ask that our members call ahead for all shop orders, including purchase of the Basics Kit. Curbside pickup is also available and we would be happy to bring your order to your car.  Please allow time in-between customers in our lobby for sanitation. Thank you in advance for your understanding. We are available by email at membership@gsak.org or by phone at 456-4782.

      At the troop level, please consider virtual options for the near future or make sure groups do not exceed 25 indoors. Mask wearing and social distancing must be observed at all times. Refrain from snack time, no field trips and make sure sanitation is top of mind. If you need items such as hand sanitizer or clorox wipes, please use troop funds or contact our office for a supply of these items at no charge. No extra members such as siblings are allowed, only registered members. These mandates are in place for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

      We urge all of our members to stay home if feeling sick or exposed to Covid-19. This applies to visits to the Council office and Girl Scout Troop Meetings. The sooner we get this virus under control, the sooner we can return to our normal routines.

      If you have any questions about our safety policies, please call us at 907-456-4782 or the Council hotline at 907-799-1612. Thank you for your continued support and for keeping each other safe throughout the pandemic.  Let’s keep being safe this fall so we can keep Girl Scouting!

      Happy #GivingTuesday2021! Today we ditch the steals and deals for a different kind of theme, GIVING! Today, around the world, people are coming together to give back on the local level. You can make a big impact by donating to the Farthest North Girl Scout Council, and help support Girl Scouting all across northern Alaska! Thank you!

      Farthest North Girl Scout Council is feeling thankful.Monday, November 29th, 2021 at 3:23pm
      There is still time to drop off canned food and boxed non-perishable food items to the Council for our Gratitude & Canned Food Drive this month! Bring along a paper heart or use one of ours at the Council to write down what you're thankful for. Don't forget to write your name and troop number on it! At the end of the month, we'll give out fun patches to everyone who donated and then we'll take all the food to the Fairbanks Food Bank. We've already received SO much food that we had to make a delivery of food already! That's awesome! Let's keep going and help those who need it. It's the Girl Scout way! 💚

      Centered in Fairbanks, the Golden Heart City of Interior Alaska, The Farthest North Girl Scout Council has a history and tradition dating from 1925, thirty-four years before Alaska became the 49th state.  To learn more about the Farthest North Girl Scout Council and its unique history in Alaska click here.
