Girl Scout Troop 1806, based in Durham, North Carolina, is a multi-level troop for girls who are in the first grade through the fifth grade. Troop 1806 is based in southwest Durham, but draws girls from all over Durham.
Troop 1806 currently has about 100 registered girls who are divided into twelve patrols: two 1st grade Daisy patrols (the Red Pandas and the Unicorns), two 2nd grade Brownie patrols (the Lightning Stars and a new patrol yet to be named), two 3rd grade Brownie patrols (Awesome Blossoms and Jay Birds), one mixed Brownie/Cadette/Senior patrol (the Mariner Scout Ship Minnesota), two 4th grade Junior patrols (Awesome Possums and Shooting Stars); one mixed 4th and 5th grade patrol (Queen Bees), and two 5th grade Junior patrols (Emerald Adventurers and Peppermint Sparklers). A few of our patrols meet weekly, while most of the others meet bi-weekly. All Troop 1806 patrols, from Daisies through Juniors, meet together four times a year for special troopwide meetings in October, January, March and May.
