Once your gsLearn user account has been activated and your email changes, then please notify the council ( or 540-777-5100) of your email address change. The gsLearn user account is specific to your Girl Scout email address. However, email address changes to your Girl Scout account will not automatically update your email address in gsLearn. Email address changes have to be updated manually by Virginia Skyline Council.

Connecting with Families
COVID Guidelines

There is nothing Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council takes more seriously than the safety and well-being of our girls, volunteers and staff members. We know the desire for safety is one shared by all of us. We want to be together and remain physically healthy, and we need to have our emotional and social needs met as well. A healthy Girl Scout community can only be achieved if we ALL commit to doing it together. If even a fraction of our members ignore our guidelines, this effort will fail.

Check our council’s current COVID guidelines before planning any troop activities.
