However, they will not receive patches unless you have paid for their spots on your team.
How do I track my team's points?
When your team completes an activity, submit your points via our smartsheet tracker monthly List the activity, the number of participants and the date, and your points will be automatically calculated! (Note: Points are awarded per activity completed, not per number of participants)
I completed an activity on my own. Can I count it for my team's points?
Technically yes, although it's not recommended. We highly encourage teams to complete activities together! Working together in the outdoors is key to Girl Scouts and creates lasting memories!

I have a question that isn't on here. Who can I contact?

If girls on the same team complete the same activity but on separate occasions and not together, do I count the points one or twice?
We recommend counting this as two separate activities, since the girls completed these on separate occasions. Mark each on their own line on your activity log.
What does the participant cost go to?
The $5 per participant charge covers the cost of the patches & rockers.
