Behind every Girl Scout and volunteer is a team of local staff ready to help them earn that next badge, embark on a camping adventure, or organize an impactful service project. That’s what a Girl Scout council is. We are here to maintain camp properties, provide local Girl Scouts skill-building workshops and resources to achieve whatever they can dream up.
Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington serves members throughout Oregon, and Clark, Skamania and Klickitat Counties in Washington (view a map). 40 volunteer-led areas called service units provide support for girls and adults in their area.
Our council is funded through grants, donations, bequests, program fees, product sales, investment income and endowments. For more information, view our most recent Annual Report.

Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington Equity Statement
Each year, thousands of girls in Oregon and Southwest Washington discover new experiences, build friendships and grow as leaders through Girl Scouting. Even so, thousands more do not know or feel that Girl Scouting is for them.
Girl Scouts exists to help girls thrive. When girls lead, our families are stronger, our communities are stronger, and as an organization we are stronger. We are committed to offering a safe, inclusive, welcoming place for all girls and their families. We want all girls to know that Girl Scouts is an opportunity available for them, and feel welcome as members.
Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington will identify the barriers we have created or allowed to limit this opportunity. We are committed to understanding how these barriers have impacted girls of different races, religions, ethnicities, socioeconomic statuses, immigration statuses, sexual orientations, abilities, gender identities, geographic locations, and those impacted by other forms of bias and oppression. We must eliminate these barriers, responsively change our culture and practices, and actively embrace inclusion as an approach and an attitude. We will be allies and not bystanders in the face of discrimination or bigotry.
We commit to the ongoing accountability, transparency and organizational changes this work will require. We make this commitment to ensure that our mission—Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place—truly includes all girls. We will continually work to be an organization where all girls feel welcome, represented and empowered as they discover, connect and take action in their world.
A Living Commitment
To bring the commitment of our Equity Statement and the promise of our mission to life, our council is currently taking action on 14 DEIA-focused projects supporting four key priorities:
