Girl Scout Troop 1806, based in Durham, North Carolina, is a multi-level troop for girls who are in the rising first grade through rising fifth grade. Troop 1806 is based in south central/southwest Durham, but draws girls from all over Durham.
After our May 2018 bridging (where two Junior patrols bridged out of Troop 1806 and became Cadettes in our sister Troop 1808), Troop 1806 currently has 64 registered girls who are divided into six patrols: a rising 2nd grade Brownie patrol (the Justice Unicorns), two rising 3rd grade Brownie patrols (the Red Pandas and the Unicorns), two rising 4th grade Junior patrols (the Lightning Stars and the Solar Stars), and one rising 5th grade Junior patrol (the Awesome Blossoms). Most of our patrols meet meet bi-weekly during the school year. All Troop 1806 patrols, from Daisies through Juniors, meet together four times a year for special troopwide meetings in October, January, March and May.
Girls and Boys in Scouting: Troop 1806 is exclusively for girls in rising first grade through rising fifth grade. See the rest of this page (below), and the navigation bar on the left, for information on Girl Scouting with Troop 1806. For information about boys in Scouting, click here.
Troop 1806 girls in the 1st grade are known as Daisy Girl Scouts. Troop 1806 does not enroll Kindergarten Daisies. During 2017-2018, we had one Daisy patrol that just bridged up to Brownies. We have opened our interest list for rising 1st grade girls to form new Daisy patrols this fall. There are currently 19 girls on this interest list.
Troop 1806 girls in the 2nd and 3rd grades are known as Brownie Girl Scouts. After bridging, 1806 has one rising 2nd grade Brownie patrol and two rising 4th grade Brownie patrols. All of our Brownie patrols are currently full - the only way we can enroll new Brownies is to form a new Brownie patrol.
Troop 1806 girls in the 4th and 5th grades are known as Junior Girl Scouts. Troop 1806 has two rising 4th grade Junior patrols, and one rising 5th grade Junior patrols. All of our Junior patrols are currently full - the only way we can enroll new Juniors is to form a new Junior patrol
Boys in Scouting: Girl Scouting is exclusively for girls. Boys interested in Scouting can join the Cub Scouts (for boys in grades 1-5) or the Scouts BSA (for boys in grades 6-12).

respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
