|Every Girl Outside!|
It is that time of year here in North Carolina where people are soaking up sunny autumn days and driving to the mountains to take in the sights of colorful trees and clear blue skies. There’s nothing like being outside during the crisp days of fall. And here at GSCP2P, we are also getting excited about our own outdoor experiences for girls and the calendar of events we have rolling out. Our three camp properties- Camp Ginger Cascades (Lenoir), Camp Pisgah (Brevard) and Keyauwee Program Center (Sophia) – are ready to get every girl outside!
Weekend programming is happening onsite at Keyauwee Program Center and Camp Ginger Cascades almost every weekend through the spring (details to come on our online calendar) and programs are also going on throughout western North Carolina in a variety of spaces (Radical Rock Climbing anyone?) Camp Pisgah will be back in action this spring after undergoing several updates and refreshes that will make girls’ camping experiences the best they can be! We also have troop horse program opportunities coming up in December at Circle C Equestrian Center, which is located on the same property as Keyauwee Program Center.
As has become a GSCP2P tradition, registration for summer camp will once again kick off this upcoming Monday (Cyber Monday), November 29. For a $50 deposit, girls can save their spot at camp and get an exclusive camp T-shirt, with official summer camp program selection happening in January. This is a great opportunity to make sure you are first in line to get in your favorite session during summer 2022. Some great things coming up with summer camp this year include:
Resident camp sessions happening at Keyauwee Program Center (June-July) and Camp Pisgah (July-August)
Day camp programming at Keyauwee Program Center (July) and Camp Pisgah (first three weeks of July)
Adventure-based camping sessions at Camp Ginger Cascades- are you ready to explore the outdoors on the back of a llama? Or trek through the woods on a backpacking trip? These sessions are for your troop, and give our older girls especially, some new and exciting camp options.
New this year! Service unit and troop camping opportunities at Camp Ginger Cascades. Have you ever wanted to take your troop camping during the summer, but didn’t have a facility to use? Camp Ginger Cascades is going to be open all summer long for troops and service units to reserve different lodging options and give their girls their very own camp experience. Come slide down the cascades, try your hand at archery, venture to the top of the climbing wall or build your own campfire. There are endless adventures at camp for your girls!We look forward to offering these exciting, new and multiple outdoor adventures in the months ahead. Be sure to check our online calendar often as new programs are added and keep a lookout for the 2022 program guide that will be coming out to families in the new year. Have questions about camp or outdoor programs? You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can’t wait to see everyone outside soon!
National Service Project- Fighting Hunger
Tens of millions of children and adults in the U.S. are experiencing food insecurity, a number that has increased since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and may include members of our Girl Scout community—making this a sensitive and important issue for Girl Scouts to take action on.
There’s more than one way to support your community’s hunger relief efforts. Check out the Fighting Hunger national service project to learn more! Our council-wide highest Fall Product Program sellers will be recognized at our G.E.O. event on June 11 at Emerald Pointe in Greensboro.

Updated Parade Toolkit
GSCP2P sends our thoughts and prayers to Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast after the tragedy that happened at this weekend’s Christmas parade. While there were 30+ Girl Scouts and parents walking in the parade, thankfully they had turned the parade route corner and were not injured. We know that this time of year has many Girl Scouts participating in holiday parades, so we wanted to take a moment to share our Parade Toolkit, as well as the Safety Activity Checkpoint information for participating in parades.
