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!

      Our Council office will be closed on Monday, October 18th in observance of Alaska Day. We'll reopen with our 11am-5:30pm hours on Tuesday, October 19th.
      We love living in and learning about Alaska. For example, did you know that Alaska has at least 20 different native languages? WOW! You can learn more about the languages and the indigenous peoples of Alaska at the UAF Alaska Native Language Center: https://uaf.edu/anlc/languages.php. Thank you for being so beautiful and amazing, Alaska!

      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.
