Brownie Quest Outline

We will start our first Brownie Journey at our next meeting. I chose Quest since it was the first one written, and I think it’s important to understand your place within your community and what you can do to help.  I am completely skipping the story in the girls’ book, but I am going to use some of the activity pages.

I plan on focusing on the community aspect of the Journey and will use the Circle of Caring (page 60 of the girls’ book) as the backbone for meeting planning. Most of the sessions should only take up part of our meetings, so we’ll do badgework for the remaining time.

Here is a link to it at Scribd to you can download/save/print it easier.

Session 1: Me
Session 2: My Family
Session 3: Girl Scouts
Session 4: My Community
Session 5: World Community
Session 6: TAP

Any further sessions will deal with our TAP, so I haven’t attempted to plan them out. It is also possible that there will be changes made to the sessions, but there is a rough outline shown below.
