Welcome!


Welcome to Girl Scouts of Orange County Troop 2898! We're so glad you found us!

We're a multi-level troop with girls ranging in age from Kindergarten through 9th grade. We meet in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA and our members come from there and the surrounding communities.

We are SUPER-ACTIVE and BUSY! Our Daisy and Brownie troops meet every other Sunday (usually the first and third Sundays of the month) and Juniors and Cadettes meet every Sunday. Year round, you may find us working on badges, doing community service projects, or camping.

If you're interested in joining our exciting group, click on the Contact Us link and request more information. We look forward to hearing from you!

And if you're ready to start your Girl Scout adventure, click here to sign up for scouts: http://girlscoutsoc.org/join 

 

Best Regards,

Teri Hulett, Jennifer Wormser, Christa Ruiz & Dave Ruiz, Troop Leaders

Individual (Parent/Daughter) Booths

  • These booth sales are for girls in one family with their parent.  All adults need to be trained and pass the quiz.
  • Usually these booths are for older girl scouts - Brownes and Daisies are encouraged to do Troop booths.
  • You can use your own cookies OR troop cookies for these booths.  Troop cookies can be picked up from Mr Dave before the booth sale begins.  Extra troop cookies should be returned immediately after the sale ends.
  • The family needs to provide their own table, tablecloth, and a small amount of change for the booth.
