Girl Scout Council Hosts Virtual Programming, Troops

Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont
Press Release

COLFAX, N.C. - Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont (GSCP2P) is keeping girls connected from across their 40-county region and beyond with their new virtual programming options.

Every Monday through Friday at 11 a.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. and on Saturdays at 11 a.m., Girl Scouts and anyone who is interested can tune into Facebook Live workshops with topics ranging anywhere from STEM and gardening to life skills and family game night. They even host a weekly campfire on Thursday evenings.

“We launched our virtual programming in mid-March and since then have seen an exponential increase in our social media following, not only from our local girls, but from across the country and around the world in some cases,” said Lane Cook, CEO of GSCP2P. “We want everyone to know that unlike other activities, Girl Scouting has not been canceled. We are still offering ways for girls to connect, engage, learn and explore right from their homes, even when meeting in-person is not an option.”
