Good afternoon! I am really very excited to find this forum. My daughter just became a Brownie at the end of last year (December time frame). we are part of a very very small troop and I really want to get more involved as I feel the girls could gain so much more from scouting than they currently are getting. I am not the troop leader of course, but last week I was asked if I would take over doing all the arts and crafts with the girls and I am so excited. I know that my troop leader works very hard, and I want to help as much as I can without over stepping my bounds. Any ideas that I can get to help out girls do things to earn badges, crafts, trips.....anything! I am going to sign up for all of ideas above and welcome and all ideas! Thank you! -P

Hi I have been a Girl Scout Troop Leader in CA for the past 5 years and I came across this site and thought I would join in. I am always looking for fresh ideas. Today my girls are bridging from Brownies to Juniors! I am very excited for them. I am looking forward to this new year and can't wait to find new ideas.

Hi Tweety! It seems to be pretty quiet around here but I am glad someone else stopped in. Can you please explain "bridging" to me? I understand that its moving from being a brownie to being a junior but not much else. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Bridging is a ceremony/celebration when the girls move up to the next level. Usually it involves walking over a decorated bridge. They do a really neat one in my area at the 5th grade level where the girls bridge over the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.

That sounds wonderful - how exciting for them! I am here to try and learn a bit about what I should be doing to help my troop. I have gone to my local Council office and spoken with someone there and I think I have some great ideas. I just dont want to upset anyone in the troop as I am the newest member of a *very* small group of girls. Most of our girls are young brownies - this will be my daughters second year (2nd going into 3rd grade). I was hoping to get the girls on a camping trip this summer but so far all I have been told is the troop dosent have the money for it right now. I am hoping to find some ideas of things for the girls to do that will be low cost for the troop since funds seem to be a problem. Any ideas?

I find a lot of ideas on Pinterest, if you do a search for girl scouts you can find a lot of ideas and most of them use recycling of items. I have also found a few blogs online that have ideas. We recently did a back yard camping event. We used my co-leaders back yard and put up tents. The parents pitched in $10 per girl and that covered dinner, snack, smore's and breakfast plus the crafts we did. We filled the time with tie die, I found a free printable camping bingo game online, we did a few cheap bead crafts. They put a performance together to perform at night. We tought them knife safety skills and then let them help prep things for meals we planned. I was also able to borrow a projector from work and we did a movie under the stars at night.

I am glad I fumbled onto this site. I have just spent 2 hours roaming thru the post. I decided that since I am going to spend some time on the website I might as well register. I have been a multi level troop leader(Junior, Cadettes and seniors) for 4 years in West Central Florida. I am looking forward to hearing about new ideas and event suggestions to make this year more exciting for my girls.
