Sending Girl Scout Love
Our hearts are broken for the girls and families of Girl Scout Troop 5567 from Topeka, Kansas who tragically lost three Girl Scouts in an automobile accident on Saturday, October 8 as they were traveling to Girl Fest, a council-wide family and troop event at Camp Tongawood in Tonganoxie, Kansas. Our thoughts also go out to one Girl Scout with critical injuries in the hospital and the other Girl Scouts involved in the accident.

To show support for your Girl Scout sisters you can write and send cards using the information below. 

Volunteer on a Board Committee
The GSCP2P Board of Directors looks forward to an amazing year working with and supporting you as the governing body for GSCP2P. In order to do great work, they are counting on you to exercise your ability to participate in the democratic process by serving on a board committee. This is a wonderful way for all of us to live a key component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience by “taking action.”

GSCP2P is currently looking for adults and Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors who are interested in serving on one of our Board Committees. We are specifically looking for anyone who has expertise or interest in serving on the following committees:
Finance Committee
Audit Committee
Board Development Committee
Resource Development Committee
Annual Meeting Planning Committee
Scholarship Committee
Adult Recognition Task Force
Human Resources Committee
Property & Camp Committee
You can find a description of each of these committees by clicking here. We would love to have some new faces and energy in these committees and are excited to have openings in a wide variety of areas. If you have questions, are interested in learning more or would like to add your name to one of these lists, please fill out this form.​
Last Day to Take Girl-Delivery Orders for Fall Product Program

Parents/guardians- your deadline to enter your Girl Scout’s orders taken on the order card in the M2 system is tonight at 11:59 pm. Any orders not entered in the M2 system by tonight’s deadline by the parent/guardian should be submitted to your troop’s fall product volunteer to enter during his/his limited order-entry window. Online orders for girl-delivery candy/nut items ends this Saturday, October 22.  ​
New Camporee Request Form
Camporee requests for spring 2023 are open, with the request period closing at midnight on November 11. To request a camp, units and staff-facilitated activities, please use this new form. After the November 11 deadline, we will confirm all camporee dates for spring 2023 with the service unit representative. 

Once all camporees are scheduled, troop camping will open for all other available dates and units through MYGS (anticipated date is December 1). All reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. For questions, please reach out to us at or 800-672-2148. ​
