April 16, 2014

By Cindy Kelly Deaton, Chief Operation Officer

On March 8, 2014, our council, Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines, welcomed the new 2014-2015 Girl Board members. During their term, the girls will attend regular board meetings, plan and implement a service project, participate in social media activation and marketing, and continually provide the girl perspective to the council and its affiliates.

We’re excited to introduce this amazing group of young women and we can’t wait to share all the great things they will accomplish this year!

Dymun AtkinsonMy name is Dymon and I’m in my sixth year of Girl Scouting. I live in Goldsboro and currently serve as my troop’s president. One of my favorite Girl Scout memories is attending Girl Scout Science Camp at Meredith College last summer. I also enjoy participating in service projects and serving in a leadership roles. I’m excited to bring new and fresh ideas to the board and I am eager to learn and expand my knowledge around Girl Scouting.

Brianna BennettMy name is Brianna and I have been participating in Girl Scouts for six years – and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made! I have participated in the council’s planning team for the Centennial Jubilee and I currently serve as president of my county’s Older Girl Advisory Board. I am also a Girl Scout program aide and have planned two Spring Encampments for my area. I wanted to be on the Girl Scout Girl Board so that I can be at the forefront of decision making at the council. In my spare time I like to perform in school and local plays!

Victoria DanielsHello! My name is Victoria and I am a life-long Girl Scout who is engaged in many facets of the organization. In addition to enjoying activities with my troop, I actively participate in many council-sponsored events and leadership opportunities. I’ve served on the council’s Strategic Learning Team, Teen Camporee staff, and planning team of the Centennial Jubilee. I’m also a graduate of the Discover the Leader in You! Leadership Camp. I served on the Girl Board for the 2013-2014 term and am returning for additional year. I will be taking on a new leadership role by serving as a Girl Board mentor and helping new members navigate their role and become engaged on the board.


Hillary JacobsHey Girl Scouts! My name is Hillary! Just a quick introduction about myself…I love playing tennis, dancing, and cheering! Outside of school activities, I attend church regularly, I ride golf carts and Four Wheelers with my cousins, and I am a GIRL SCOUT! I have been a Girl Scout since I was in first grade and I look forward to having Girl Scouts in my life always. My favorite memory from Girl Scouts is a tie between 100th Anniversary Rock the Mall in Washington DC, and learning the “Little Red Wagon” song at Camp Hardee.


Katherine KingHello all! I’m Katherine from Wake 19. I currently live in Morrisville and have been in Girl Scouts for 12 years. I love art, history, literature, and speaking Chinese. At home, I’m fairly reserved and introverted, but with Girl Scouts I’m outgoing and (slightly) crazy. My absolute favorite Girl Scout thing is leading day campers in songs, and hearing all the different versions at cross-county events! I’m excited to be working as a Girl Board member and to help make Girl Scouting in our area even better than it already is.


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy name is Leah and I am from Durham. I am a member of a FIRST robotics team, and I play field hockey in the fall. My favorite part of Girl Scouting has always been sailing at summer camp. I am excited to serve on the Girl Board in order to use my experiences to help shape Girl Scout policies and to promote STEM activities for girls of all ages.




The Best Part of Summer? Girl Scout Day Camp!

September 23, 2013

By Tiffany S., GSNCCP Girl Board Member

My name is Tiffany and I’m one of the Girl Board Members for Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines. There are tons of things I could write about, but I want to tell you about an aspect of Girl Scouting that means a lot to me – Day camp!

Every kid longs for the end of school in June. The hot, sunny days. Playing ball. Laying on the beach soaking in some rays. Sounds like a perfect summer, right?

The one thing that comes to my mind about summer is that I get to attend day camp at Camp Mary Atkinson. I have been a day camper since 2004 and have loved every minute including meeting new friends, learning songs, and participating in swimming and archery. As I got older, I decided to become a program aide (PA), which is a teen Girl Scout who helps the unit leaders and staff during day camp.  Attending day camp had been such a wonderful experience for me that I wanted to share it with the next generation of Girl Scouts!

IMG_1188This past summer I served as a PA for Johnston County Day Camp at Camp Mary Atkinson. The best part about being a PA is that I’m now a leader for  younger girls and even though I’m a teen, the unit leaders treat me as an adult.  I get to lead younger girls in camp songs and skits and still participate in camp activities like canoeing, making crafts and climbing the Alpine Tower. Day camp also gives me a chance to make new friends as well as to see old friends who may attend different schools.

Next year will be my last year as a PA. It will be a bittersweet end to a great Girl Scout experience. I will miss the girls, the sounds of laughter in the pool, s’mores and songs around the campfire. I will miss the squeals or shrieks  from the first time climber on the Alpine Tower when she says she cannot continue because she’s too scared, but is proud to have reached the top. But I think the one thing I will miss most about day camp is the friendships I made there. Nothing compares to Johnston County Day Camp.

Have you attended Girl Scout Day Camp? Share your experiences below and tell us what made it such a memorable experience!
