Troop Spotlight Header

Girl Scouts around our council are always active – camping, traveling, doing service projects, and making the world a better place. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains invites all Girl Scouts in our council to share photos of their adventures, achievements, projects, and more. Send your photos to us at Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.

Troop camping at Farnsworth

Multi-level Troop 10097 of Berlin, NH, went camping at Camp Farnsworth at the end of June with 14 girls attending. They clearly made the most of the activities available at camp.

Burning “bothers” and releasing frustrations

Troop 10097 also found a creative way for Girl Scouts to release their frustrations and worries by “burning bothers.” Troop leader Lisa Hauser Smith said, “We taught fire building then the girls wrote their bothers down and they crumpled them and burned them in the fire. Then the girls made wishes, goals and dreams, wrote them on flying wish paper, and they sent them out to the universe by lighting them. The wish paper flies up into the sky as it burns. Then we ended by getting our frustrations out by throwing rocks.”

This May event was the first all-troop meeting they had in a year and a half, due to the pandemic.

First time at camp

Selena P of Raymond, NH, and Troop 10427 has been looking forward to Girl Scout camp since before she became a Girl Scout. She worked hard to sell cookies to fund her adventure, and made it to Camp Farnsworth this month! Her mother said she’s already looking forward to next year!

Brownies bring garden to life

Girls from Troops 59205 and 60240 of Mont Vernon, NH, worked together to weed, mulch, plant and create new features in the Margaret Clark Bird Sanctuary and Garden at the Mont Vernon Village School. The garden is already a well-established fixture in the community and many others have worked on the garden in the past. The girls from both troops worked incredibly hard to not only bring the garden back to life after a long winter, but to add some fun new kid friendly pieces to entice more kids and community members to enjoy the garden. Some of the new fun features include a gnome garden, a kindness rock garden, and tire planters.

"The troops wanted to give back to the Mont Vernon community, and particularly the Mont Vernon Village School, which has been such a welcoming and positive place for them," said troop leader Lauren Conroy.

Troop camps at Kettleford

Brownie Troop 60160 from Merrimack, NH, with leaders Joanne Grobecker, Stacey Pippenger and Shelly Cyr, had a fun time at Camp Kettleford’s Troop Camping weekend! They did archery, hiking, swimming, cooking over a campfire and sleeping in tents. “It was fun to be outdoors with friends!” said Joanne.
