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.
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!!
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.
Welcome to the fabulous world of troop leading! I’m so excited for you! I remember back to my very first troop meeting and how nervous I was. Planning that first meeting can be a little stressful. Especially since you are just starting out and I’m sure overwhelmed with all the knowledge and ideas out there.
Over labor day weekend our scout troop reaped the benefits of their goal setting skills and hard earned cookie money to enjoy a night at the Brookfield Zoo! It seemed like a long time coming as the cookie season ended back in March but we had to the buy the tickets so early because it sells out fast! The evening and morning program was very well planned and packed with a lot of activities. Despite a few hiccups, our troop had an amazing time!
