GSHPA is heading to Disney World for the Girl Scout Convention and National Council Session – and so can you!

By Catherine Amoriello

It might only be October, but Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania (GSHPA) is already gearing up for the 56th annual Girl Scout Convention and National Council Session (NCS) slated for July 16 -22, 2023, in Orlando, Fla.!

GSHPA is sending two girl delegates, Brylea S. from Lycoming County and Cara C. from Lancaster County, and two adult delegates, Carol Thornton from Cumberland County and Karen Zercher from Lancaster County, to represent our council at the triennial event. Brylea, Cara, Thornton, and Zercher will join National Delegates from across all 50 states to review and debate proposals that govern Girl Scouts. But you don’t have to be selected as a National Delegate to get in on the action!

Early bird registration is open now for girls to secure their spot for Phenom by Girl Scouts, the largest in-person gathering of Girl Scouts in the world. Girls will spark new friendships, celebrate epic achievements, and explore with their new Girl Scout besties from around the country. Take advantage of the early bird registration special and register now to experience the magic of both Girl Scouts and Walt Disney World® Resort during the week-long event.

Check out the video below for a preview of what’s to come at the 2023 Girl Scout Convention and NCS!
