Registered adult volunteers can be leaders, co-leaders, assistant leaders, and parent volunteers. Registration is held annually in September. Training for leaders is held each year, and parents are always encouraged to register as volunteer adults even if they aren’t able to lead a specific troop.

Activities for the girls are age-appropriate and include learning various skills, participation in many activities, and taking trips, both local and outside the immediate area. The Girl Scout Camp in northern Germany, Camp Lachenwald, and the Girl Scout Camp at Camp Darby, Bosco Ridente, both have summer programs of various length for girls who have completed the first grade.

Boy Scouts of America
Boy Scout Troop 295 is based at Caserma Ederle and is always accepting boys and adult volunteers.
To be eligible for boy scouts, boys must be 11 (or 10 and have the arrow of light) to 18 years old. The boys are separated into "patrols" or appropriate age/skill levels.
The troop meets Tuesdays from 5:30 - 7 p.m. weekly, except in August.
The goal of the BSA is to help boys build life-long skills, leadership and confidence. The troop has several community service projects and initiatives they take part in annually. Individual development includes assistance pursuing any of the BSA merit badges. There are group camping trips about 9-10 items per year with at least one extended trip of about one week. The boys learn skills such as first aid, cooking, camping, knot-tying, tent-assembly, fire-building, using knives and axes, orienteering, rappelling, hiking and other outdoor skills.

Caserma Ederle has an active Cub Scouts program. The Cub Scouts are open to boys in first grade through fifth grade — or 7 to 10 years old.
Cub Scouting means "doing." Boys have lots to do as a Cub Scout — crafts, games, sports, songs, stories and puzzles, to name a few. Much of the fun happens right in the den and pack. The Cub Scouts also go to events like the annual blue and gold banquet, the pinewood derby and take part in community events. They go on field trips, camping and have other outdoor adventures.
The den usually meets every week or every other week. Meeting times are determined by the Den Leader and the Cub Scouts’ parents. The entire pack meets once a month throughout the school year typically the 4th Thursday of the Month.
At den meetings and pack meetings, Cub Scouts do different things for fun and learning.
The Cub Scouts are always looking for volunteers to help as Den Leaders or to assist with the two major events of the year, the Blue & Gold Banquet and the Pinewood Derby.For more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
