The Carroll Gardens Library based group, 11th Gowanus Bay was founded in early 2018. Janine Triggs Rodriguez is Group Scout Master and chose 11 because her son was born on 11-11-11. (But not at 11am)
11th Gowanus Bay has Scouts in one section at this time, Otters (grades K - 2nd). We meet one Friday a month after school at the Carroll Gardens Library at 4pm and one Saturday a month for an outing. Please contact us to be added to our waitlist.
Our namesake Bay, in 1636, was the site of the first settlement by Dutch farmers in what is now Brooklyn. We will have an ongoing commitment to help remediate the damage that was done to this body of water.
Our scout necker is orange, yellow, brown and black. They represent the various hair colors that our Scouts have. Reminding everyone that all are welcome here.
