Our troop is unique! We always have girls moving, coming, and going with our military lifestyles. Our troop can fluctuate from five girls to 35 in the blink of an eye. Very few of us have been in the troop from Daisy to the Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador levels. I am one though. I have made friends with girls in my Daisy year who have moved and I still consider them my “sisters.”  We help each other and we work together always.

Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud of our commitment to military families. In honor of the Month of the Military Child in April, we are excited to announce The Carla Montana – Distinguished Military Veteran – Memorial Girl Scout Adventure Fund honoring its namesake, Girl Scouts, military service, and adventures through travel.
