When do troops meet?
Where do they meet?
How often do they meet?
How much does it cost?
What activities do they do?
These are questions we get all the time and the answer may seem flexible or frustrating...every troop is different! Once the leadership team is established, they will decide when and where to meet. Some of our troops meet right after school and others meet on the weekends. Some meet once a month while others meet every other week. The cost to join Girl Scouts is $25 but troops may have troop dues of $20-50 per year. Optional events will also cost extra.
Troops are also different in the activities that they choose Some troops focus on badge work and learning new skills while others focus on service or the outdoors. All troops share the same mission, Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
Girl Scouting During a Pandemic
At Girl Scouts, we take safety seriously. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be of concern in Alabama and our nation, we are taking all possible and appropriate measures to ensure girls continue to have a safe, fun, one-of-a-kind experience at Girl Scouts.
Girl Scout troops may meet in person observing social distancing guidelines, wearing masks, providing hand sanitizer and following the Girl Scout Safety Activity Checkpoints, or they can meet virtually. In response to COVID-19 restrictions, Girl Scouts at Home was created to offer activities and plans that can be implemented remotely.
