Girl Scout Troop 1806, based in Durham, North Carolina, is a multi-level troop for girls who are rising to first grade through the fifth grade in the fall. Troop 1806 is based in southwest Durham, but draws girls from all over Durham.
Troop 1806 currently has 90 registered girls who are divided into eleven patrols: one rising 1st grade Daisy patrol (7 girls registered, but patrol to actually form in the fall), one rising 2nd grade Brownie patrol (the Lightning Stars), a new Brownie patrol patrol forming for rising 2nd grade girls (two leaders, no girls yet registered), two rising 3rd grade Brownie patrols (Awesome Blossoms and Jay Birds), one mixed Brownie/Cadette/Senior patrol (the Mariner Scout Ship Minnesota), two rising 4th grade Junior patrols (Rock Stars and Shooting Stars); one mixed rising 4th and 5th grade patrol (Queen Bees), and two rising 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 three times a year for special troopwide meetings, on the first Thursday of October and February, and the last Thursday of May.
Girls and Boys in Scouting: Troop 1806 is exclusively for girls in the first grade through 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. Our interest list is now OPEN for rising 1st grade girls to form a Daisy patrol (or two) for the fall of 2016. There are 12 girls on our Daisy patrol interest list, and seven of them have already registered to form the nucleus of the new Daisy patrol. It is entirely possible that TWO Daisy patrols will form, if enough leaders and girls come forward.
Troop 1806 girls in the 2nd and 3rd grades are known as Brownie Girl Scouts. Troop 1806 has two rising 2nd grade Brownie patrols, one mixed Brownie/Cadette/Senior patrol, and two rising 3rd grade Brownie patrols. A new Brownie patrol for rising 2nd grade girls is now in the process of forming.
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 three rising 5th grade Junior patrols. The rising 5th grade Queen Bees Junior patrol decided to allow rising 4th grade girls to join them, so it is now a mixed grade patrol for rising 4th and 5th grade girls.
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 Boy Scouts (for boys in grades 6-12). Girl Scout Troop 1806 has partnering or association relationships with two Cub Scout packs and one Boy Scout troop. For more information on Cub Scouting, visit their respective websites here: Cub Scout Pack 451 and Cub Scout Pack 12. For more information on Boy Scouting, visit the Troop 451 website. Information about other Durham Cub Scout packs and Boy Scout troops is posted on the Durham Cub/Boy Scout District website.
