Troop Meetings, Travel Continue to Follow Restrictions
With the extension of Phase 2 in North Carolina, the following safety guidelines are still in effect:
• Troops and Service Units can meet in groups of 10 people maximum inside and 25 people outside. Social distancing and face covering guidelines MUST be strictly followed. If troops are gathering at a local park or church, individual family transportation is preferred. Carpooling MUST include masks at all times. No buffets or shared food. Same guidelines apply to Community Partner programs (no large group gatherings/programs).
• Virtual Girl Scout program is still preferred. Refer to the council website for a full listing of provided programs, including badge and Journey workshops, summer camp experiences, mailed Kamp Kits and more!
• Overnights and troop travel will not be approved through August 10. If your troop has a large trip or activity planned after that, please complete the Troop Travel form and stay in touch with your Troop Experience Manager. Guidelines can change quickly, and we want to be able to approve troop program as soon as we safely can.
