Girls Troop 4125
Scouts BSA Troop 4125 is for girls aged 11-17 who are interested in leadership development, want to learn practical skills, enjoy the outdoors, and want to create memories that will last a lifetime. The girls troop meets every Thursday at 7pm during the school year at Live 360 in The Mall at Wellington Green.
Planning for the new troop began over the summer of 2018 by conducting meetings, identifying adult leadership, and holding recruiting events for prospective members. The adult leadership will be a mixture of male and female leaders with several leaders being experienced leaders from the boys troop. Parents will be strongly encouraged to join adult leadership and will be provided training through mentoring as well as the BSA online training program.
The girls scouting program will follow the Scouts BSA program that has been in place for over a hundred years. Patience will be exercised with the girls as they are new to scouting, but they will be held to the BSA standard of excellence. The girls troop will be scout-led meaning they will have responsibility for the decisions of the troop under the guidance and support of the adult leaders.
Scouts will be encouraged to work on advancement by fulfilling certain rank requirements. Each rank will have varied requirements from areas such as practical skills, first aid, outdoor skills, physical fitness, citizenship, etc. Certain ranks will require completion of advanced skills such as serving in leadership and performing service. In the process, the scouts learn to become more independent, and, over time, they learn to teach and lead others eventually holding positions of responsibility within the troop.
The troop will have an outdoor program leading with a camping trip once a month. As the troop gains members and gains experience, the program will grow in variety and offerings.
St. Peter’s United Methodist Church is very excited to host one of the first troops for girls in the western communities.
