The Girl Scout Daisies in troop 458 prove you’re never too young to tackle BIG challenges, try new things, inspire those that are younger than you and make a difference in your community.
In their two years as Girl Scouts, this troop has accomplished SO MUCH! Here are just a few examples:
When a member of their troop suffered a severe head injury on a playground and spent weeks at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, the rest of the girls knew they had to do something to give back to the hospital that healed their friend.
Using their cookie sale proceeds, Troop 458 purchased items for and assembled 100 craft kits for children at John’s Hopkins Children’s Center. Here’s what some troop members had to say about this experience:
“It made me feel happy that we were giving things to other kids.” – Abigail
“(I) felt happy because if the children didn’t have anything to do, that wouldn’t be fair” – Gabrielle
“It felt really good (and) I was happy going there to donate (the kits).” – Tara

During the Summer of 2016, Troop 458 spent a weekend at Camp Conowingo! Camping skills are progressive in Girl Scouts but yes, even Daisies can go camping!
Inspiring Younger Girls to become Girl Scouts
While working on part 1 of their Bridge to Brownies badge, Troop 458 invited younger girls to their meeting and taught them the Girl Scout Promise and played some fun games! Their guests got “Future Girl Scout” fun patches and they even had a brother Boy Scout join in the fun of learning about Girl Scouts.
Reflecting on Their Journey
In preparation for their bridge to Brownies, Troop 458 talked about their favorite times during their first 2 years of scouting. Without prompting, the girls took off their vests and enjoyed looking over all their activity patches and reminiscing about their fun times.
We CAN’T WAIT to see what the future holds for this AWESOME group of Girl Scouts. If their time as Daisies is any indication, we know we can expect BIG things!
