Girl Scout Troop 1806, based in Durham, North Carolina, is a multi-level troop for girls who are in first grade through fifth grade. Troop 1806 is based in south central/southwest Durham, but draws girls from all over Durham.
Troop 1806 has 45 registered girls who are divided into five patrols: a mixed 2nd/3rd grade Brownie patrol (Incredible Angels), a 4th grade Junior patrol (the Leaping Tree Frogs), two 5th grade Junior patrols (the Pink Roses and the Moonlight Sparkles), and a 6th grade (formerly Junior) patrol (the Justice Unicorns), that is bridging out of Troop 1806. Until COVID intervened, most of our patrols would meet meet twice a month during the school year, with three quarterly troopwide meetings and one troopwide bridging in May. As with all things COVID, the patrols are still active, but are flexible in how and when they meet and do activities.
