MiCaSa Girl Scouts
of the Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast
This Troop from Orange County earned their Silver Award through this helpful video on flag ceremony protocol and flag etiquette.
This video is from Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, and demonstrates how the Girl Scouts should hold their hands during recitation of the Promise and the Law.
These Girl Scouts explain how a typical meeting is closed with the friendship circle and singing of "Make New Friends" There are many songs your troop can sing, but this is a traditional song for the close of meetings.
Beginning Your Troop Meeting
Closing the Meeting
Clean up is another job on the Kaper Chart. Clean up is really everyone’s responsibility, but one or two girls can be assigned as checkers to make sure the meeting place is left clean and in good order. Resist the temptation to clean up for the Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts live by the rule to, "Leave a place cleaner than they found it."
Finish with a closing ceremony
Some popular closing ceremonies include the friendship circle, squeeze, and singing a song. Check the video on this page to see an example of a closing ceremony circle and song. Here's a list of other Girl Scout songs.
