  • Running A Unit: All Levels The Basics And Beyond

    Girl Involvement in Planning:  We are Guiders.  We Guide

    • We guide the girls in developing leadership skills, planning skills, and camping skills.
    • We guide them by offering lots of suggestions so they can choose and make their program their own.
    • We guide by letting them make mistakes and learn from them.
    • We guide by asking questions and letting them try to figure it out.
    • We guide by being strong role models.

    All Levels Guider Planning Meetings Tips:

    • share responsibilities (many hands make for little work)
    • take turns running meetings, or run different parts of the meeting
    • change up responsible guider or treasurer part way through the year
    • find a balance between socializing and business
    • use the fun finder or instant meetings, or camp in a box, for ideas
    • get the girls involved in some of the planning

    Getting To Know Each Other

    • try to plan Sep-Dec, then have another meeting in Dec to plan Jan-Jun (or Jan-Mar/Mar-Jun) This makes for a good excuse to get together as adults
    • get out and camp – if you are not comfortable ask for a mentor
    • plan a camp or sleepover as soon as possible because that time together bonds the girls way faster than meeting once a week
