Edith Macy Conference Center has served as a unique facility dedicated to educational opportunities since 1926. This "university in the woods," as it was called in its early days, remains the site of many workshops and conferences sponsored by Girl Scouts of the USA. Participants in these Macy courses return to their Girl Scout councils with new skills and knowledge and a renewed commitment to their work.
Macy, as it's commonly known, has always functioned as a learning center for Girl Scout volunteers and staff members, and it is also open to both nonprofits and for-profits for training events. It features six corporate conference rooms, a 200-seat auditorium, and 52 guestrooms, all surrounded by 400 wooded acres in Briarcliff Manor, New York—just 45 minutes from New York City. Macy is an ideal setting for events large or small. The conference center has facilities for groups of up to 200 people. The nearby John J. Creedon Education Center is perfect for smaller and more confidential gatherings. With these features and more, Macy offers all the ingredients for a productive meeting.
