Map Your Plan
Troops typically meet between 10 to 20 weeks per year. Use this chart to create a well-rounded experience based on the number of hours you have available.
Choosing Activities or Events for Skill-Building Areas
This chart shows how many activities or events you should choose for each skill-building area and grade level.
Planning Guide Pins
Each girl who completes the required activities for each Skill-Building Area at her grade level earns a Planning Guide pin, a special award that is worn on the front of their uniform – see our Uniform Guide for placement.
Submit Your Planning Guides
Planning Guide Pins are free to eligible girls. To receive Planning Guide Pins, submit your troop’s information online at the end of your program year, no later than October 31.
Please report your troop’s activities even if your troop didn’t finish every Skill-Building Area. Your feedback provides important information about troop activities and achievements across the council.
