Troop 410 Completes 2nd Year of Scouting

As Woodbridge’s first and very own BSA girls Troop 410 successfully completes its second year of scouting, the scouts and their parents are celebrating and remembering the many things that have been achieved and experienced so far in in this journey.  Since its inception in the fall of 2020, the Troop has swelled in numbers and has inspired several young girls to dream of possibilities and opportunities they have only heard of from boys involved in scouting.

As these first girl scouts carry the centuries-old male only scouting legacy, they become resourceful and independent young women, who can be influential and moral leaders in the society.  As part of service to the community, Troop 410 often organizes drives that donate food, books, clothes, and winter gear to those in need, because the Troop wishes to bring about a positive change to their surroundings.  The girls of Troop 410 also undergo training in various first aid and emergency preparedness procedures from trained professionals.  They learn hands on about how to treat injuries, perform CPR, the Heimlich maneuver, and use an AED, which enables them to be prepared to save lives when the need arises.

Apart from these activities, the girls have several troop outings to learn, connect, and most importantly, have fun.  This year the girls have been to adventure parks for fun climbing activities, planetariums where they have learned about stars and planets, the Audubon Society for bird study, to name just a few.  The Troop also often goes on camping and hiking trips, where the scouts have the opportunity to test the many survival strategies and skills they have learnt.  A particular favorite camping event universally popular among our scouts is spending a full week at Camp Sequassen, which is an exclusive summer camp for scouting youth, located in the great outdoors under canopies of trees, and atop the rocky ground.  Here the scouts have a lot of fun participating in games, training activities in the water and meeting other scouts from all over the state.  We have an adventure packed calendar for the coming year, including biking, skiing, backpacking, tubing and so much more.  We welcome girls Grades 6-12 interested in scouting to come to a meeting and see if it’s for you.  Please contact Guldeniz Yucelen at guldeniz.yucelen@gmail.com or Enrene van Tonder at vantonder77@gmail.com if you would like to learn more.
