Is your troop all about earning badges/Try-Its? If yes, how many do you earn per year? If no, what do you do at meetings?

between fall product(oct) & cookie sales(Jan) we earned about 2 tryits and 4 fun patches(then fall product sales patches). we were a brand new troop just starting out and ALOT of new parents.


during cookie season we only earned about 2 try-it patches...now since cookies ended march 6th we earn 2 try-its per month(1 per meeting) and about 3 fun patches per month.


we are not really patch oriented..but its a simple and easy thing to do at meetings. i have brownies so HUGE time consuming community service projects are not practical right now. also ALOT of girls dont come to meetings continuously(only about 5 do) so trying to get everyone together for a big project is a hassle.

Thanks

I know last year when I had only Brownies we did a lot of Try-Its plus the Journey - Brownie Quest.

I could get a Ton of Fun Patches but we just don't have the funds to buy that many.

With a combined meeting of Daisies/Brownies/Juniors, my Daisies will have earned all their petals this year plus 4-6 Fun Patches depending on girl.

The Brownies have only done 2 Try-Its :( and 4-5 Fun Patches.

My Juniors have gotten a Sign, Leadership Award, Jr Aide, 6 badges (I think....I have check again), and 4-5 Fun Patches.

The Brownies and Juniors have also earned a Our Own Troop's Try-It/Badge for one we made up -- Learning the Law with Daisies.

I really don't know how to classify my troop. We do some badges and some religious awards/patches (all girls are Catholic, but we designate 1 meeting a month specifically for that), and some service, and some fun stuff. I guess I'd say we are well rounded.
