Share your troop's size and meeting information with Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois! This will help us with determining when and where our troops are meeting while letting us know if you are able to take more girls or not into your troop.
This is a wonderful opportunity for troops to allow new girls looking to join Girl Scouts to find a troop in their area, and truly spreads the spirit of Girl Scouting for every girl! You can truly have influence in a girl's life by accepting just one more girl into your troop.
The troop size “sweet spot” is large enough to provide an interactive and cooperative learning environment and small enough to encourage individual development. Though the ideal troop size is 12 girls, we recommend that groups be no fewer and no larger than:
A Girl Scout troop/group must have a minimum of five girls and two approved adult volunteers. Be sure to double-check the volunteer-to-girl ratio table in volunteer essentials to make sure you have the right number of adults present for group meetings, events, travel, and camping.
Thanks for filling this out! Your information is invaluable to us!
