Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council appreciate the importance of the family nucleus. Therefore, when girl members participate in Girl Scout activities, often her siblings come along or “tag-a-long” just for the fun of it.

“My brother is only five years old. But he really has a good time hanging out with my Girl Scout friends and their families at our Girl Scout activities,” said Arielle Watson. “My dad comes too sometimes. We call him a Do-Dad.” Do-Dads are men, usually fathers, who volunteer with their daughter’s Girl Scout troop.

He had a great party full of Girl Scouts!”
