Girl Scouting at Home

Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines invites girls, families, and  volunteers to stay involved while at home.  We know that today’s girl is  ready to pivot on a moment's notice and is willing to embrace new ways to explore Girl Scouting.  That’s why we’re promoting these  options for engaging with us while you’re at home today … or any day!  While using the internet, girls should make sure to follow the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge. And make sure to share your digital experiences with us by submitting your Girl Scout story and use the hashtag  #OurGSNCCPCommunity on social media!

The resources below will continue to be updated every weekday for the time being.

Though we cannot endorse or support specific online meeting tools for your use, there are various tools to check into for virtual meetings. At council-level meetings and trainings, we use the following online tools that might be good options for your troop/service unit and to further engage in council activities and perhaps even with other troops. 

  1. Microsoft Teams – offers a free version for collaboration, file sharing and chat 
  2. Lifesize – offers a free account for personal use. It allows for up to a 90-minute call and up to 25 participants with a dedicated virtual meeting room and group chat during the meeting.
