Thank you to the five intrepid leaders who ventured out on a chilly April afternoon for Hiking Training Level 1. We covered many topics and enjoyed an afternoon hike to explore the Spring Creek Canyon Trail from the Shiloh Road trail head.
Audra Edmunds has created a set of excel sheets for tracking a troop’s progress through a level that is available for free. The spreadsheets include tabs for tracking badges, journeys, pins, dues, events attended, etc. In addition to tracking if the badge has been earned, the sheets also include columns to if the badge has been awarded yet so you can keep track of what you still need to hand out.
The sheets have even been updated with all the new badges and journeys.
You can also find information on all the badges and comments from troop leaders in our area who have worked on them, along with local resources on our award lists pages. If you have insights to share with your fellow troop leaders, we want to hear from you.
While GSHPA’s Volunteer Toolkit does not provide the badge packets, it does have suggested lesson plans for all the badges and most journeys for the Daisy, Brownie, and Junior level.
