  • Parents Meetings– A good rule of thumb is to have a parent meeting twice a year----once to start the year and again to close the year.
  • Ceremonies - Investiture welcomes new members, girls or adults, into the Girl Scout family for the first time. Girls receive their Daisy pin at this time.  For other ceremonies, See Chapter 2 in Volunteer Essentials and  also visit www.girlscouts.org/program/gs_central/ceremonies
  • Community Service - Click here for some ideas---feel free to come up with your own!
  • Trips - Girls love trips and Girl Scouts is a great place for them to learn how to plan and take trips, because travel is built on a progression of activities.  A walk to the nearby garden or a short ride by car or public transportation to the firehouse or courthouse is a great first step for Daisies.
  • Managing troop treasury - see Chapter 5 in Volunteer Essentials
  • Safety ratios:
    • For troop meetings: Two non-related adults (at least one of whom is female) for 12 girls plus one adult for every 6 additional girls.
    • For events, Travel, and camping: Two non-related adults (at least one of whom is female) for 6 girls plus one adult for every 4 additional girls.
  • Camping - Under the leadership of an adult, a Daisy troop may participate in an occasional overnight camping experience.  Camping, a great Girl Scout tradition, is one of the very first activities that Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low encouraged for girls. The key to an enjoyable group-camping experience is being prepared. Obtain camping credentials. Ensure that one adult has been a part of council group or troop-camp learning on supervising group camping. Group camp education generally covers outdoor program activities, minimal-impact camping skills, safety procedures and standards, and methods of dealing with homesickness.
