Local Scouts Troop only one in area to become a Marier Troop.

An Englewood Girl Scout troop is the first troop in the 10-county area of Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc. to become a Mariner Girl Scout Troop. Troop 608 held its inaugural meeting at the backyard pool of their leader, Kathy Van Note, with participants following CDC guidelines. Lynn Wilson serves as troop co-leader, and Bailey Chamberlain, is troop assistant leader and lifeguard, supervising swimming activities and helping to ensure safety procedures are followed. The Mariner program has been part of Girl Scouts’ history since 1934, and the current program is designed for Girl Scouts in grades eight through 12 who are looking for an opportunity to engage deeply in water-focused activities. As Mariners, girls develop skills in swimming, safety and rescue, boating, and weather and navigation. To earn their Girl Scout Mariner pin, girls must know and recite the Girl Scout Promise and Law, swim 50 yards, and tread water fully clothed for three minutes. Participation in the full Girl Scout program is encouraged. Four of the girls, Ayva, Destiny, Sophia and Kenzie, have already earned the Silver Award, the highest award for Girl Scout Cadettes, and the Girl Scout Summit Award for completing three Cadette-level Leadership Journeys. For their first meeting, each girl was challenged to build a model boat from found objects, and the girls held a ceremonial launch in the pool amidst cheers and laughter. Swim tests will be held later this summer, and girls will begin learning to sail Intex Mariner 4 inflatable boats with sail rigs. Destiny, a Girl Scout Cadette who recently finished seventh grade through remote learning, was excited to be at the first Mariner troop meeting. “I want to gain knowledge about boating and marine life, and become stronger,” she shared. The troop is looking for resources, including subject matter experts from local businesses and community organizations with a focus on water, and potential sponsors to help locate basic equipment as well as provide expertise. Anyone wishing to provide assistance is encouraged to call 921•5358 or email ginas@gsgcf.org. For more information, contact Shayenne Nelson at 721•5358, ext. 406 or ShayenneN@gsgcf.org.
