On my honor,
 I will try
To serve God
and my Country.
To help other people at all times.
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

 
 

 

 

PARENT SUPPORT

I can’t do it well without the help of many. I would like to see a well rounded program full of fun.

Please help us reach this goal.
Here are the areas we always welcome help:

Troop Committee

A troop is successful if they have the support of parents. One way to support our girls is to serve on the Troop Committee
The troop committee members must be registered adult Girl Scouts. If you would like to serve as a committee member please complete a registration form. The fee is $7 which will go to GSUSA and will also provide the member with the GS insurance.

Our current Troop Committee needs are:

  • Sponsor(s). A sponsor is someone who provides the troop with money or materials to aid the troop.

  •  

  • Cookie Parents. We need a cookie manager for the troop and at least one other adult helper. The leaders will coordinate cookie booths. The cookie manager will have to be available to attend cookie training.

  • Emergency Phone Contact. This person will call everyone in case a meeting or event is cancelled. (Can form a phone tree if desired.) Also, in case of an emergency, this person will need arrange for someone to be available during field trips to call all parents in case of an emergency.

  • Service Project Coordinator. Help the troop however needed in carrying out service projects as they occur. Can come up with the idea for a service project and make arrangements for it following troop approval.

  • Journal Coordinator. Make certain that at every meeting there is are parents signed up to help with the journals for the last 15 minutes of the meeting.

There will be other needs that will arise during the year, so do not feel as if we do not need you. We never turn down help when it is provided.


Fundraising (Calendars, Cookies, and Misc. Fundraisers each needs someone to run it)

 First Aid Qualified Adult, our rules highly recommend someone besides the leader be First Aid Qualified…

Drivers, GSUSA Policy will be followed regarding all drivers

Parents, (Mom or Dad) willing to camp overnight with us

Parents, with expertise in a specific badge area who could teach it
(Car Care? Ms Fix It? Pet Care?  Sky Search?)

Patrols with a large troop, it’s often most productive to split them into small groups called Patrols and rotate them through activities at a meeting.  When we do this, we need at least1 adult to work each small group session. 
Please feel free to stay for meetings and let me know if you’re ready to join in on the fun!

Thinking Day Resource person, we always learn about another country in the month of February.  We always need a parent who can lead us on our journey of learning about another country during that month.

Troop Rules and Policies

  • Safety Wise is our "Safety Bible" and we must adhere to its guidelines (the minimum required ratio of adults to girls at both meetings and outings are 2 adults deep.)
     

  • For camping we need 3-4 adults for every 6-8 girls
     

  • Permission slips must be turned in on time in order for a Girl Scout to participate in activities. There are no exceptions to this rule!
     

  • A Girl Scout must attend the two meetings in which we do our final preparations for our camping trip in order to go camping. We will notify you as to which meetings this will be when we know.
