Troop and Volunteer Registration open for Fall

Charlotte, N.C. (Sept. 7, 2016) –Mecklenburg County-based parents looking for a fun and meaningful activity for school age girls are invited to come see what the Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council has to offer. 

Starting Sept. 8 and continuing through Sept. 29, the Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council is holding a number of informational sessions in Mecklenburg County for girls (K-12) to learn more and register for the 2016-2017 Girl Scout experience. Girl Scouts promotes leadership through the journey of self-discovery and enrichment through community involvement and exploration.

Troops generally meet once a week or bi-weekly for one to one and a half hours. The registration fee is $20.

In addition to those interested in becoming a Girl Scout, the council is also looking for adult volunteers to serve the estimated 5,500 Girl Scouts in Mecklenburg County.

Everyone has something to contribute. Whether it’s helping future leaders pave powerful paths or encouraging girls to be more, do more and give more. According to Girl Scouts USA, every adult who volunteers with Girl Scouts brings fun new experiences to at least five girls.

Information sessions will be held at most Mecklenburg County-based elementary schools. To find an information session location nearest you please visit
