HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. – If you don’t know by now, Girl Scouts is much more than cookies, crafts, and summer camp.

The 152-acre site is now home to an impressive state-of-the-art 10,000 square foot conference center and activity building, which Girl Scouts’ leadership celebrated Thursday night with a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
