Help us repair and update the Betty Taubert Girl Scout House!
There has been a Girl Scout House in Scarsdale for over 80 years. In 1979, after a fire destroyed the original house, Betty Taubert led efforts to rebuild the house. Upon her death, the house was named in her memory.
The Village of Scarsdale and Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson Council (GSHH) share equally in stewardship of the house. The Village of Scarsdale has received a NYS grant that, along with matching contributions of $60,000 each from both the Village and GSHH, will provide funding for long awaited repairs and updates to Betty’s House.
Help us meet our goal. With your help, Betty’s House will continue to be the place that empowers girls, supports their future success and welcomes generations of Girls Scouts to come.
Help us repair and upgrade Betty’s House!

“The Betty Taubert Girl Scout House is a special place for girl scouts of all ages – from a Daisy just starting on her first badge to a veteran Ambassador working on a Gold Award. Girl Scouts have used this house to make friends, share ideas, teach each other, fundraise to support our activities and of course, to make lots of s’mores together.” - Catie B., Alumna, Gold Award & Izetta Chattin Wright Recipient
“I love our Girl Scout House. We do lots of fun activities
with our friends there.”
- Annie G., Daisy, Troop 2365
“Betty’s Girl Scout House is important to me. Some of my
favorite Girl Scout memories have taken place there – where we’ve
celebrated with other Girl Scouts. Since I was a Daisy in
kindergarten, the house is where we’ve held Halloween parties,
holiday parties, sleepovers, bridging ceremonies and more. It’s
been a great place to meet with younger scouts to teach them what
we’ve learned as older scouts. I want it to be here for many
years for more Scouts to come.”
- Hannah H., Cadette, Troop 1436
“Our Girl Scout House has lots of floors and big rooms so we can
do many fun things there like camp day with tie dye shirts, “sleep
unders”, beach parties, Halloween parties and just being with
other Girl Scouts. We have lots of fun activities there. We helped
plant flowers in the garden and even sorted garbage. I love
our Girl Scout House!”
