Applying the Frontier Girls Creed

Applying the Frontier Girls Creed

The Frontier Girls Creed outlines the basic code of conduct we expect from our members.  The creed is not just one more thing to memorize or a base for yet another craft project or song.  Character traits listed in the creed can be applied to everything a troop does, so when teaching the creed don’t just have the girls say it, teach them to live it with every badge or activity planned. Below is a perfect example of how to apply each portion of the creed to a specific activity.  Sylvia Duke, leader of troop #109, has been working on
