The Girl Scout Promise and Law are shared by every member of Girl Scouting. The Girl Scout Promise is the way Girl Scouts agree to act every day toward one another and other people, and the Law outlines a way to act towards one another and the world.
The Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
The Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
be responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

There are many wonderful opportunities for Girl Scout Troop field trips/outings in Framingham, MetroWest, Boston, Worcester, Eastern Massachusetts Council area, and Cetral Massachusetts Council area. (As this Web site grows, lists of Field Trip/outings areas for each area will be created.)

The Eastern Massachusetts Council partners with several museums and organization to offer special outings. Check this site often for these postings.

When booking a field trip or an outing for your Troop, make sure to collect permission slips for each child. Keep safety wise ratios in mind (adult & child ratio).

Many Council events limit the number of adults who can attend a sponsored outing.

Also any adult who attends as a chaperone, must be a registered volunteer with Girl Scouts.

Troop leaders are also required to file a Troop Activity (TAR) application. Make sure to file the application at least a week before the event/outing. Not filling timely may result in a non-approval.

Most field trips/outings require each Troop to have a first aider; some may require a troop camper and a lifeguard.
