Welcome to the Madison Leadership Center!

We are so excited to share details of our new Leadership Center. It's big, it's bright, and soon it will be sparkling with Girl Scout energy! Girls deserve their own space and this one is going to WOW and EMPOWER them.

Located at 4801 S. Biltmore Lane in Madison, the building is conveniently located in the American Center Business Park near the I-39/90 and US 151 interchange. The single-story building is on nearly 3½ acres and will feature leading technology and learning resources, training centers, a community room and our shop, Sashay! There's even outdoor gathering space for campfires and Girl Scout traditions.

With more than 18,000 square feet, the Leadership Center will host expanded programming for girl Scouts with emphasis on STEM, leadership, entrepreneurship and the outdoors. That means more in-person, on-site programming at the Leadership Center for girls and troops and volunteers. We'll even have space and room for troop overnighters right there at the Leadership Center! Troops and Girl Scout members can reserve rooms online beginning October 1, 2021.
 
The Badgerland Girl Scout Leadership Center has been years in the planning and we are overjoyed with the space and know you will be too!

Long Range Property Plan

We’re excited for the future. And preparing for it now!
Badgerland is in the midst of executing the Long Range Property Plan.

First a little history to explain how we got to where we are today. Development of the strategy was literally years in the making. A volunteer-led, Property Planning Committee was appointed by the Board in 2009 to review, in depth,  all ten Badgerland properties. Their job? Scrutinize all ten properties with an eye for program potential and the cost of bringing properties up to program standards. That committee concluded its work with property-by-property recommendations presented to the Board in April 2013. In the fall of 2013, those proposals were released to the full membership for review and comment. Following the listening and commenting period, the Board voted on the final plan in June 2014.
