      The Council has a color-coded system to adjust with the threat level from the Coronavirus. Our system is based upon case-levels in Interior Alaska and the demographics that we serve. Decisions on the North Slope and Northwest Arctic Regions will be made independently, based on circumstances in those communities.

      Our Council office is staffed from 11:00am – 5:30pm, Monday – Friday
      -Masks Required-
      -Limited number of customers in Council shop to one family-

      Dear Farthest North Members,
      As the number of Covid-19 cases are climbing to alarming rates, we are reminding our members to observe our Red Zone policies. 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. No extra members such as siblings are allowed, only registered members. These mandates are in place for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

      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 and let’s get Girl Scouting again!

      Happy Birthday to our Membership Specialist, Meagan Blair Scheer! If you are a Troop Leader or a Girl Scout familiy, chances are, you've interacted with Meagan and her famously cheerful personality. We're so lucky to have her on our team! Meagan also volunteers at a number of other nonprofits around our community and is known for being a mover and a shaker who loves to give back to her town. That sounds just like a Girl Scout, doesn't it? Thank you for everything you do for Girl Scouts and for our community, Meagan. You're amazing! 💚🎂🎈
