1 WHAT DO YOU DO AT A GIRL SCOUT MEETING? Most Girl Scout Meetings have the same general format and are usually one to two hours in length. The basic parts of a meeting are: Start-Up Activity Opening Business Activity Clean-up Closing Optional An informal activity for the girls to enjoy while waiting for everyone to arrive. Some examples of a start-up activity are: singing songs, playing a game, making nametags, or planning an opening or closing. An activity that starts the meeting. Examples of typical openings are: learning or saying the Girl Scout Promise or Girl Scout Law, learning about each other, reading a story. The business of the troop/group is conducted during the business portion of the meeting and may include basic elements such as dues collection and attendance, record keeping, short planning for upcoming events. The girls should be encouraged to handle as much as their age and experience allows. The highlight of the meeting: a girl s answer when her parent asks her What did you do at your Girl Scout meeting today? singing a song or when it's made into a game. Everyone helps. Meetings end with simple closing ceremonies. After a few examples and a little encouragement, the girls will come up with suitable openings and closings on their own. Girls may choose to have a nutritious snack at any scheduled time during the meeting. The group decides on who brings the snack. Where do we start? Before you plan your first meeting, look over the Journey Facilitator Set How-to Guide and the leader's guide for your troop/group level. Your first few meetings will include registration for all girls and adults, getting to know the girls and helping them get to know you, learning the Girl Scout Promise and Law and sharing the special stories of Girl Scouting with the girls. You will want to find out what the girls are interested in, help them to plan an investiture and rededication, assemble a first-aid kit and participate in lively, fun activities such as songs and games.
