Join Us for a Great Fall- Programs, Trainings & More!
The new membership year begins in just a month, and we can’t wait to welcome back new and returning girls, volunteers and families to another great year of Girl Scouting. 

The 2022 Fall Program Guide is now available here. There are so many wonderful opportunities for our girls to learn and grow through council programming and community partnerships- whether they choose to do it with their troop or on their own. We hope you will take the time to look through all the events and plan a great fall with us!

Next weekend, our adult learning weekends will kick off with Leaderee happening at Keyauwee Program Center September 9-11. Our adult learning weekends are a great chance for our Girl Scout adults to connect with other volunteers, complete required trainings and gain new skills to use throughout the year. Registration for Trainfest at Camp Pisgah and Leaderfest at Camp Ginger Cascades is still open, and we would love for you to join us! Along with these weekends, we also have a lineup of in-person and virtual trainings happening for our volunteers throughout the next several months. 

Remember, you can also find upcoming programs on our online calendar– so be sure to check back often. ​
Goodwill Patch Contest
Virtual Camp License Renewal Course 
When was the last time your renewed your Camp License? Cook Out and Camp Licenses are valid for five years, so if you received yours prior to September 2017 or between September-November 2017, it’s time to take the course again!

This renewal course will be taught virtually on September 21 or October 6. Participants should come prepared with a pocket knife, bandana and a piece of rope at least 18 inches long. Prerequisites for the course include the latest versions of the Be Safe, Be Ready: Girl Planning and Outings & Overnights, which can be found on gsLearn. Participants will also have to submit a video of themselves making a 3-match fire to complete all the requirements.
