I grew up as a Girl Scout, so I was thrilled when my daughter asked to join a troop. I love Hornets' Nest Council and all of the Staff and Volunteers! I started off as "the Mom who hung around at the meetings" to now I am a Service Unit Manager, Assistant Troop Leader, Council Facilitator and Trainer. GSHNC provides wonderful opportunities to all of the girls that are members.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Enrichment and facilitating opportunities

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a wealthy benefactor to help develop our new camp.

My daughters started as Brownie scouts in 2007. Originally I saw this as just a way to maintain an inside connection with those yummy girl scout cookies. But it didn't take long before I realized what a wonderful organization Girl Scouts is and all that it can provide for my children. Our council, Hornet's Nest, provides so many different activities for the girls to participate in and to grow into future leaders. My girls have participated in sleepovers where they have learned science and math. They have enjoyed learning about ways to protect mother earth when they participated in an Earth Day event, and they have learned about other countries during "World Thinking Day". One of their favorites is when they join together with other troops within our service unit to collect food for those in need. I can't put into words how wonderful it feels to see the joy on their faces when they walk the neighborhood and gather the bags of food that people have left on their porches for the girls to collect. They have learned the importance of helping others and I am thankful that Hornet's Nest council provides opportunities like that for my girls.
My girls have also attended a week long summer camp for the last 3 years. They have learned so much and look forward to this day camp each summer. I am thankful that our council can provide so many wonderful opportunities for my children to explore so many different things. I love volunteering with GSHNC and plan to be a part of this organization for many years to come.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

becoming a co-leader and being a part of helping our girls become leaders.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Currently I can not think of any changes that I would make. Just keep offering activities for the girls to grow and learn.
