We had our last official meeting in April. Our girls will be 3rd grade Brownies next year. This past year we did 1 meeting a month and 1 "outing" a month. Normally we don't do anything over the summer except encourage them to go to our Service Unit Day Camp that I help run along with 2 other leaders. This year we did a "planning" meeting in June for our 1 night campout in July and plan to have another one closer to time to finalize details. We would love to do one more thing, but the summers go by so fast I'm not sure that we will. This may be enough! We would rather get an early start next year.

My daughters troop had their last meeting last Monday, and will be having their Court of awards on the 2nd of June. They don't do anything as a troop during the summer, but the one leader runs one of the local GS daycamps, so many of them attend that. Beth will be doing 2 day camps and one week of resident camp this summer with GS, but most of her troop will not be doing that.

We had our last meeting on the 12th and then the big service unit Court of Awards on the 19th. As a troop we are going to go duckpin bowling on the 31st, camping at the end of June and we plan on having a family picnic in August. School starts back in September right after Labor Day so we will start our meetings back up later that month.

we will have our last meeting at the end of June and then not have another one until the week after school starts. During the summer we usually try to get together for at least one field trip and to get together for "play dates"

We have a scout leader that has a pool and we meet as friends too. Usally towards the end of the summer.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

I tried having one "fun" meeting per month my first summer as a leader, but only got about a third of the girls each time.
Now we have settled on a "non-GS" swim party that one of the girls hosts and just happens to invite her friends from GS. Can't be a GS event, as we would have to hire a life guard. Get about half for that.
I would love to do more in the summer because my daughter gets bored, but too much work for the low turnout.

One day at a time . . .

We usually have one summer outing. The last two years we have gone to amusement parks in neighboring states. This year we are camping right in town next to the amusement park. That's what they wanted to do, and it saved us time, money and planning.

I want to go to Nationals too. I think three leaders and two girls are going to head that way.

hello, We had our Court-of-Awards last week and yesterday we went to the scrapbook store and the girls made cute albums of the year's activites.
We are planning on meeting once in July and then waiting until school to start again, which is Aug 15 for us. I'm gonna enjoy the break, but I'm already "busying" myself with our July meeting and figuring out how we are gonna get to the National converence in oct/nov.

Our Brownie troop had its last meeting on Monday. June 1 we will have our End-of-Year Celebration where we will hand out of the the patches/try-outs.

How many troop are year round? What is done during the summer months?

I want to get to a healthy weight and stay there forever. I don't have to make huge changes all at once, just small ones consistently.
