Earlier, I posted news that Southborough Girl Scouts is holding its registration night next week. It turns out that next week is also when girls in grades 6-12 can also learn about joining a Boy Scouts of America troop.*
Fortunately, they are on different nights.
Calling all Girls Grades 6-12 to Join Troop 823!

The second flyer right provides more details for parents. Here are some of the highlights:
Scouts BSA is for girls and boys in grades 6-12. No prior experience is necessary.
Who are we?
We are Troop 823. We were founded last year to provide girls in Southborough and Northborough to experience the Scouting program and outdoor adventure. We will give young women a chance to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence and develop leadership skills.
What do Scouts do?
Scouts BSA is a year round program that provides fun, adventure, learning, challenge, and responsibility to help them become the best version of themselves. We teach character and leaderschools using an outdoor program. We go hiking, camping, canoing and more. Since we are scout led, if there is something you want to do, bring it up, help organize it and we’ll do it too!
When do we meet?
We meet at the Church of Nativity (45 Howard St, Northborough) on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 8:30pm.
Where and how do I enroll my child?
Troop 823 is helping the Northboro packs recruit on September 11th at the Lincoln Street School. The event runs from 7pm to 8pm. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might might have. And for an extra bonus, you can check out the local CubScouts too!
If that is not a great fit for your family, then contact us and we can help find alternatives.

*Full disclosure – my daughter is enrolled in both the GSEM and BSA programs. She’s loved her Girl Scout experience but decided to also check out the Boy Scouts. She joined up this summer and has been loving it as well.
