Summer camp is a great investment for your girl!  Not only will she benefit long-term through healthier lifestyle choices and expanded leadership, she will also have fun and make life-long friends.  Visit Camp Like A Girl  to see all the awesome programs awaiting her this summer!

Does your daughter have a friend she would love to bring to camp? Our camps are open to ALL girls (not just currently registered Girl Scouts)! Invite a friend to join you this summer!  We have some great Bring A Buddy incentives for girls! 

Another great incentive going on for camp this year includes the Camp Go-Getter discount.

Dads Can Make a Difference Too!

Girl Scouts would not be the organization it is without the dedication and support we receive from our volunteers on a daily basis. And those great volunteers don't always have to be moms either. We love when our dads get involved too and show just how man enough they are to be a Girl Scout! Read how one dad's involvement with his daughters in Girl Scouting has made a difference in their lives and his! 


Girls of Faith
Girls from across the council earn religious awards

Girl Scout Sunday is a big part of the Girl Scout Week celebration, and while Girl Scouts is a secular organization, GSCP2P has always encouraged girls to take spiritual journeys through different faith recognitions. 

Girls can take initiative to grow their religious beliefs by earning the P.R.A.Y. religious awards offered by their faith communities and by earning the My Promise, My Faith pin (a GSUSA award), which helps girls strengthen the connection between the Girl Scout Law and her faith. 

The P.R.A.Y. awards serve as a connection for Girl Scouting and churches to benefit young people. The result is stronger youth, stronger families, stronger congregations and stronger councils.  

In recognition of girls celebrating and exploring their faith, we are pleased to announce the following girls who have earned P.R.A.Y. awards over the past year:
  • Holly Attkisson, Winston-Salem, Midway United Methodist Church, God & Church Award
