Your Safety is our #1 Priority 

Traffic Cone

Spring and summer means going on more adventures with your troop.  When planning your next outing, be sure to check the Safety Checkpoints to make sure that you are prepared for your activity and that you follow the Girl Scout guidelines.  If you are going more than 100 miles from your meeting spot or will be gone for two or more nights you will also need to complete a trip request form.  Not sure about the process?  Contact your nearest membership specialist.
