Virtual Troop Meetings
At Girl Scouts, we are fortunate to be able to continue offering the same quality programming to girls, volunteers, and families virtually for at-home enrichment experiences.
Platform (Zoom) Instructions: Virtual troop meetings can be held via Zoom. Please use these instructions for hosting your own free 30-minute virutal troop meeting. Personal Zoom accounts have a meeting time limit. If you have a larger troop and need a longer meeting time, submit a Zoom for Troops and Service Units Request Form to schedule your meeting using a council-owned paid account.
