As a volunteer you should submit this form online directly to council. Upon approval you will receive an email from council which will let you know you may volunteer with the troop in that role.

Helpful Troop Forms and Documents





Helpful Troop Basics



  • How To Flag Ceremony is a tutorial in how to run the Township Flag ceremony. For Brownie Troops, and rising Daisy’s, it was also brought to our attention that by participating in a Township Ceremony, Marching in the Memorial Parade, and singing at least 3 Patriotic songs that there is a Brownie Legacy Badge available.


    It has been a long standing tradition that the Girl Scouts of Cranford provide the flag ceremony at the beginning of every official Township Meeting. It is an excellent way to introduce your troop to township government and community involvement. Township Committee meetings take place on Tuesday nights. Scouts arrive at 7:45pm to practice on their own prior to the meeting at 8:00pm. Troops are allowed to leave after the flag ceremony around 8:10pm.

    Please follow this genius link to volunteer your troop for one or more of the many dates offered.

Is there a Girl Scout Volunteer who is making a difference in your daughter's life?


Is it her leader, a parent volunteer, or service unit volunteer who is helping to provide an opportunity for her to grow in courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place?


If your answer is yes, please consider nominating this person for a Volunteer Recognition Award. Volunteer Recognitions allow us an opportunity to individually recognize and honor our Girl Scout volunteers who tirelessly give their time, talent and energy to our girls. Our volunteers help girls develop values to guide their actions and the foundation they'll need to make sound decisions to better their communities.

We would like to continue to recognize the special people in our Girl Scout community. Please see the attached for further description of the awards and requirements.
