Community Resources for troops


Hi Maureen,

It was very nice talking to you. I am the Financial Education Specialist at the Mid-Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union. At MHV, we are committed to our community and organizations that support the people of the Hudson Valley. We would love to work with the West Lakeland Girl Scouts!

For adults we offer financial literacy presentations on topics such as planning for a home, budgeting, improving credit score, tools for Your Financial Wellness, etc.

For children we have educational events and programs. We teach them the importance of savings from a young age and bring a gift bag for everyone.

We can schedule a call any time to discuss. You can always reach out by email. If you prefer to meet in person please let me know.

You can reach me at my cell # 347-533-3325.

Have a great day and hope to meet you soon!

Hello scouts & families!

We had such a great time with all of you at our Girl Scout Jamboree, and we hope to see you again soon! With over 20 troops from New York State in attendance, we appreciate you joining us for a fun-filled weekend. This year, our 17th annual geology program will be held on September 24th, 2022.

If you’re looking to join us for a camping trip or a day-trip this summer, we are offering new & exciting group experiences this year! For Girl Scout troops, there is a new opportunity to fulfill the requirements needed for the Outdoor Art Maker badges. Our hope is to provide scouts with valuable, interactive opportunities to learn and grow within their scouting journey at an affordable price.

Attached you will find our Scout Troop Group form that includes discounted group rates for mining, sluicing, jewelry creation, and the option for badge work. We have also implemented new pricing where scouts can camp for only $5 at our tent sites! Our season begins April 15th and ends October 31st. For more information about the property, please visit

If you have any questions, please email me at or call our Corporate Office at (315)-717-0175
