Daisy troop in Nottingham is learning new skills and making friends
NOTTINGHAM, NH – Girl Scout Troop 62216 has been very busy since forming last fall, learning life skills that will serve them well as they grow up. The troop includes six Daisies in kindergarten and first grade in Nottingham.
Troop Leader Katie Green said they have spent the past few months earning badges in outdoor art, robotics, shapes in nature, snow adventure, and cookies, as well as participating in the council’s fall product sale. The girls are ready for their first adventure into learning financial literacy and business skills with the Girl Scout Cookie program. The troop has a particular love for science experiments that include getting messy. They made volcanoes, created their own snow dough, and covered their hands in Crisco to test how arctic animals stay warm in the snow. They are looking forward to their first cookie booths, sledding and snow shoeing, and taking a few fields trips this winter. The troop also celebrated their investiture in December with a special pinning ceremony in December with friends and family.
Co-leader Carrie Green Loszewski said the girls are eager to make new friends, so they welcome new members to the troop. The troop currently has girls from four different schools so it has been a great opportunity for meeting new friends. They meet weekly at the Nottingham Community Center.
“It’s wonderful to see how quickly they learn to work together as a group,” she said. “I can’t wait to see how the connection and camaraderie continues to develop as they grow older!”

We Are Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world. Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends. Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them.
