There is so much you can do with your troop!
JOURNEYS* and proficiency badges are often considered the core of the program. But, your girls are at a great age to try all kinds of new things. From crafts with different supplies to overnighters, you can try many different activities with your troop. Badges and JOURNEYS* can give you ideas for fun trips and events. Or, you could start off with a trip or tour to a local destination. If your girls really enjoy it, that’s a clue for helping your troop choose badges and a JOURNEY*.
With your guidance, your girls can start making decisions about their scout experience. Our blog about girl-led Brownie* troops can get you started. MakingFriends®.com has tips, ideas, freebies and complete kits to make leading your troop easier.
Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook. We have a helpful community of more than 22,000 leaders who are always ready to help. You don’t want to miss the coupons either!
Until recently, Brownies* was a three-year program that included first-graders.
Got ink? You’re going to need it. We have so many activities for your Brownies. Keep your girls busy before the meeting starts with our puzzles, games and crafts. Many can be used to complete badge requirements.
Get your girls outside and encourage them to be active! Scouts isn’t only about camping. Go swimming or bike riding. Build a snowman or scarecrow. The possibilities are endless.
