Who We Are

The Berks County Museum Patrol is a Girl Scout interest patrol that is dedicated to providing older girls with an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills by working with younger Girl Scouts.  We are based in Reading, PA and conduct overnight events for younger girls at the Historical Society of Berks County.  

Patrol members are girls who are Cadette through Ambassador Girl Scouts.  These girls run programs for girls who are in Daisies through Juniors.  They lead crafts and activities and teach the younger girls songs.  Our patrol members are affectionately called "Green Shirts" based on our patrol's green shirt uniform.

Our overnights are open to troops of Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scouts.  Younger Girl Scouts who attend the overnights get to learn new things by doing experiments or creating crafts.  They also learn new songs and games, all of which are led by our older girls.  These girls also get to explore the Historical Society to learn more about Berks County history.

If you are a Cadette-Ambassador Girl Scout interested in joining the patrol or a leader interested in bringing a troop to our overnights, please email us at museumpatrol@yahoo.com.  We will get back to you as soon as we can!  We look forward to hearing from you!

The following is our blurb in Spark:

The Berks County Museum Patrol is an interest patrol that has something for girls of all ages!  The Patrol is made up of girls who are in 7th through 12th grade (Cadette through Ambassador Girl Scouts).  Girls in the patrol gain leadership experience while they work with younger girls: leading activities, singing songs, and helping to plan the overnight.  Our patrol members also have the opportunity to make new friends from around the council and have a ton of fun!  The patrol runs overnight programs for girls who are Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scouts, where they can have fun, make cool projects, and learn something new, all while sleeping over in a museum.  If you’re interested in learning more about us, volunteering, or bringing your troop for a overnight, please email us at museumpatrol@yahoo.com!  Visit our website at https://sites.google.com/site/berkscountymuseumpatrol/home.
