Now is the time to send out the troop feedback survey. Why do I send out a survey? I like to know how I’m doing and if i’m meeting the expectations of girls in our troop. It also allows me to see if the parents expectations and goals are aligned with the troops. Every girl is unique and every troop is different. The survey allows me to see where girl’s interests might have changed and better plan for the following year.

We have a troop that consists of 4 daisies, 6 brownies, and 11 juniors. It’s a healthy size troop and while our meeting room perfectly accommodates us, working as a large group on one activity at a time is never successful. That’s when attention issues surface at their finest and girls get bored. A solution to this problem is breaking the troop up into smaller groups and having them rotate activities. You might want to incorporate patrols into your troop organization for this reason.
This year our troop is able to participate in a flag ceremony at their school’s Veteran’s Day assembly! The girls were pretty excited to be a part of the event as scouts! If your school does a similar ceremony at your school, you might want to inquire about finding ways the girls can participate.
This year was the most difficult in finding the right costumes! The girls started out with other ideas. Even searching a month in advance, finding their costumes in the right sizes, proved to be a challenge. Bella wanted to be a Rockford Peach but I couldn’t find one in a tween size and honestly didn’t have the time to sew one. Ryleigh has been asking for months to be Neytiri from Avatar but the only kids medium costume came at a $200 price tag!
When their first picks weren’t working out, we’d turn to their second choices……
What kid doesn’t love a birthday party? Celebrating Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday, along with Founder’s Day, is a great way to teach scouts about the history and traditions behind the purpose!
You won’t be disappointed with Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campgrounds! Check out all of the amenities and their is even a primitive group campsite for large parties, perfect for scout groups!!
So you decided to take the plunge and start your own blog! I remember 4 years ago, when I decided to take my blog from a hobby to a money making blog. There was so much knowledge out there for me to absorb and I learned along the way but there are 5 things you should absolutely do now and I’m sharing them with you today!
The idea of being my daughter's troop leader was exciting and terrifying at the same time. If you know me personally, you’ll know that I’m not the most leaderish type of person.
