Edith Macy is Owned by Girl Scouts of the USA
Edith Macy Center has served as a unique facility dedicated to educational opportunities since 1926. 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 non-profits and for-profits for training events. It features six corporate conference rooms, a 200-seat auditorium, and attractive lodges, all surrounded by 400 wooded acres in Briarcliff Manor, New York—just 45 minutes from New York City.
This "university in the woods," as it was called in its early days, is 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 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. Macy accommodations, including 46 guest rooms, are located throughout the property. With these features and more, Macy offers all the ingredients for a productive meeting.
