Our Troop

Founded as a Daisy Girl Scout troop in 2006, Girl Scout Troop 2702 currently serves Cadette, Senior and Ambassador level Girl Scouts (or any other Girl Scout who needs a "Scout Home") in the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Independent School District and surrounding communities. We no longer serve Daisy, Brownie or Junior level Scouts but welcome working with sister Scout Troops who have these age levels throughout the year. Our Scouts attend a variety of schools, participate in multiple activities, and believe in living the Law and the Promise. We welcome any and all visitors and hope that you will join us as we explore leadership, citizenship, and fun!

Meeting Day: Every Other Thursday in August - May (except Thanksgiving & Christmas)
Meeting Time: 6:30 PM - 7:45 PM
Meeting Location: Saginaw United Methodist Church - 209 Bluebonnet Saginaw, TX 76179 - Christian Education Bldg.
