Girl Scout Camp-Theme Kaper Chart

We started our second year of Girl Scouts!  We welcomed everyone back, and got to work on our new Kaper Chart.  A Kaper in Girl Scouts is a job or task.  To give the girls a little more responsibility in their troop, they each will have a job or kaper assigned to them at each meeting.  The jobs rotate at each meeting.

The theme for our kaper chart is camping, because Girl Scout love to camp.  We used part of a trifold foam board that was leftover from a prior school project.   There are sleeping bags on our chart, each with a job on it.  (Click here to download a Word doc of the sleeping bags.)  The bags were taped/laminated onto the board, and a slit cut for an opening in each bag to make it a pocket.

The girls were each given a friend, printed on cardstock, in need of her GS uniform. We had some Daisy uniform pages printed, and the girls cut out the hair and clothes to represent themselves and glued them on to their paper doll.  These little dolls were also laminated for durability and ease of sliding in and out of the sleeping bag pockets.  Each doll friend went into a sleeping bag.

The jobs we have so far are:

  • - Snack Assistant
  • - Flag Holder 
  • - Pledge Leader
  • - Friendship Circle Starter
  • - Kaper Chart (rotates the jobs at the end of the meeting for next time)

We have a few open sleeping bags on our chart to allow our troop to grow.  As we get new girls in our troop, we will have a new job added to an open bag.  ☺
