The Leadership Center for Girls and Women Becoming a Reality


groundbreaking-2

GSACPC reached a new milestone on its 103rd birthday during the groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, March 12, at Camp Sombrero. Girl Scouts, government and community leaders gathered with shovels and hard hats to officially celebrate the much anticipated new Leadership Center for Girls and Women. 

The groundbreaking ceremony included remarks by Governor Doug Ducey and Congressman Ruben Gallego and a special blessing by Debra Thomas of the Tohono O’odham Nation accompanied by O’odham drummers.

"It's no accident that all former female Arizona governors were also former Girl Scouts," says Governor Ducey.

The Board of Directors developed a two-phase construction plan. The first phase includes the necessary infrastructure, renovating the existing small lodge and pool center, constructing cabins and three activity centers. Construction begins in May 2015 and will take about a year to complete.

Investing in the healthy development of girls is the most cost-efficient and impactful way to ensure healthy Arizona families and communities in the future.
