Oh there's no fear on that account. My wife basically pilfered all my old scouting handbooks to use for her Girl Scout troop. She is very hard core. The funny thing is (well, not so funny) that we do more activities when we go on Girl Scout trips (my son and myself also) than when we go on most Cub Scout activities. I'm kind of just marking time until we move up to Boy Scouts next year. Steve
Thanks, everyone! This is the list of “stuff” that I’ve come up with. Not all of it needs to be available on Day One, but within the first year. Have I missed anything big? Tents

If it ain't broke don't fix it. It sounds like your daughter has a great (girl) scout troop. Sounds like something to stick with. With a core group on enthusiastic girls and adults they can stick with traditional outdoor-oriented girl scouting, and simply ignore any of the new program materials they don't like. Unfortunately highly active outdoor-focussed girl scout troops are uncommon in my area.
Or, to straddle both sides of the fence, you could do what many of the active Arrowmen of my old Lodge did. One sash for work, another sash for uniforms. (And, of course, over the span of many years it's my "clean" one that I've lost track of.)
