  • 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 - 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.  Senior Girl Scouts can travel around the world, often requiring one or two years of preparation.  You can start planning for such a trip when the girls show an interest in travelling abroad.
  • 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 30 girls plus one adult for every 15 additional girls.
    • For events, Travel, and camping: Two non-related adults (at least one of whom is female) for 24girls plus one adult for every 12 additional girls.
  • Gold Award - The Girl Scout Gold Award is Girl Scouting’s highest award for Senior Girl Scouts. As a Girl Scout volunteer, encourage girls to “go for it” by earning this award.
  • Alumnae
  • 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.
