FAQ

Do you have to be an Oconee Heights Baptist Church member to join the troop?

AHG is a Christian organization, and while Oconee Heights Baptist Church is our chartering organization, you do not have to be a member of the church to join the troop. We welcome any families who are comfortable participating in activities that include prayer, references to scripture, and acknowledgment of our life in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Leaders (not girls) sign a statement of faith (www.ahgonline.org ).

Does a parent need to stay at every meeting?

While parent attendance requirements vary based on their daughter’s age, in general, a parent is expected to participate in Troop meetings or stay on campus during the meetings.  In addition, we have a parent participation requirement to ensure that all families are contributing to the functioning of the troop.  We encourage all parents to take an active role in the troop structure.

I have other small children.  Can I bring them with me to the AHG meetings?

Siblings may attend meetings with Mom or Dad provided that they do not disturb the girls or the flow of the meeting.  Activities are planned for AHG members, not their siblings, so you should bring entertainment for your other children.  Children may NOT be left unattended. 

Do you have events on days other than scheduled meeting nights?

Yes, we have optional events such as service opportunities, outdoor events (including camping trips), and other special events.  We are all busy families and recognize that not all members can attend every event, but encourage full participation. 

Do you meet over the summer?

There are no formal troop meetings.  However, we will have social gathering opportunities for the girls to remain connected throughout summer breaks.
