  • Parent 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 - 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
  • Overnights - One (or possibly two) nights away to a state or national park, historic city, or nearby city for sightseeing, staying in a hotel, motel, or campground. These short trips are just long enough to whet their appetites, but not so long as to generate homesickness.
  • 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 25 girls plus one adult for every 10 additional girls.
    • For events, Travel, and camping: Two non-related adults (at least one of whom is female) for 16 girls plus one adult for every 8 additional girls.
  • Bronze Award - The Girl Scout Bronze Award is Girl Scouting’s highest award for Junior Girl Scouts. As a Girl Scout volunteer, encourage girls to “go for it” by earning this award.
  • Camping - 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. .
