When you sign up for a subscription for either 6 or 12 months you provide us with your credit card information and permission to bill your credit card each month. 

We anticipate a huge response and have developed a plan for the Trefoil Trunk program to continue at least through August 2021.

 You can start a subscription at any time, but you must register and complete payment by the last day of the month to receive the following month’s box. For example, if you register and pay on August 31, 2020, you will receive the September 2020 box. If you register and pay on September 1, 2020 your subscription will begin with the October 2020 box. Due to the varied content for each program level, as well as the packing and shipping process, this deadline is firm.

The content of each Trefoil Trunk is curated for a specific program level. Each program level has its own box with contents specific to each program level.

Order the box for the program level of each individual girl. For the live event each month, girls will have the ability to do activities separately.

Please notify [email protected] at least one month in advance. For example, if your girl will bridge from Juniors to Cadettes in May and you would like the Cadette box delivered in May, please notify Tonya no later than March 31, so that the box for the new program level can be noted.

The boxes are priced as low as possible to include the supplies, packaging, the cost of insignia (badges & journeys), as well as the custom Trefoil Trunk patch and the rockers that go with it. Unfortunately, we are unable to discount the boxes any further.

If a minimum of five subscriptions are billed to a single payment source and shipped to a single address, we will pack the contents into individual bags; combine them into one large box; and ship them together, to reduce the shipping cost. Please contact [email protected] for a combined shipping estimate.

Yes, absolutely. To ensure that every girl receives her box without interruption, renewals must be received and paid no later than the last day of the preceding month.

If you live in another State, expect arrival to be delayed in proportion to the distance the box must travel.

 Yes. When you subscribe, you can designate monthly pick-up instead of shipping for the duration of your current subscription. Delivery method may not vary from month to month. When you renew your subscription, you can choose another delivery method, if desired.

When you subscribe, you will be asked to designate a pick-up location. Pick-up location may not vary from month-to-month. Beginning the 10th of each month (or the next business day following the 10th), your monthly box can be picked up at the designated location. The pick-up locations are as follows:

  • Birmingham Office
  • Huntsville Office

Contact us for additional pick up locations. 

Boxes destined for pick-up at one of the designated locations will be packed and hand delivered to those locations once a month. Boxes will not be packed in advance. If you choose the pick-up option, you will need to pick up your box each month at the same pick-up location.

Contents of the Box & Program

Each box will contain supplies and instructions for program level specific badge and journey requirements; a booklet with games and puzzles; supplies and instructions for a craft and/or a swap; the requirements to earn the Trefoil Trunk patch rocker; a suggested monthly service project; AND the login information for the LIVE event scheduled for fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:30 PM.

The content of each Trefoil Trunk is curated for a specific program level. Each program level has its own box with contents specific to each program level.

As with any subscription box services, the contents of each box is a surprise. In addition to badge activities, the box each month will include supplies and instructions for a craft and/or a swap, the requirements to earn the Trefoil Trunk patch rocker, and a suggested monthly service project, as well as the link to the live event.

Each subscription includes 1 link (log-in permission) to the monthly live meeting. Only one device may be logged in from that individual link. If multiple devices attempt to log-in from the same link, only the first device to access the meeting will be admitted from the waiting room.

Monthly live meetings will be held virtually at 6:30 PM Central Time on the fourth Tuesday of the month (Including December 29.)

If all the activities are completed for a 12-month subscription, participants will earn 11 badges and at least 1 journey. (To complete the journey, girls will need to do a take-action project on their own.) Participants will also earn a custom Trefoil Trunk patch with a series of 12 rockers. Those who subscribe for 6 months will complete ½ of the above.

All badges, patches, and journey insignia that are earned throughout the year will be sent by mail in May. Girls will be recognized for their achievements at the Virtual Court of Awards at 6:30 pm on May 25, 2021.

As with all subscription box services, the contents of each box is a surprise. In addition to badge activities, the box each month will include supplies and instructions for a craft and/or a swap, the requirements to earn the Trefoil Trunk patch rocker, and a suggested monthly service project, as well as the link to the live event.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to supply alternative activities – but we hope your girl will enjoy looking at the badge in a new way; completing some new requirements; engaging in some additional activities and service projects; and/or sharing it with a friend.

In addition to the live on the fourth Tuesday of each month, the badge requirements to be done “on your own” the craft and/or the swap, and the suggested service project could easily consume one to three hours per week (or three regular troop meetings.) The intent is for each box to include enough activities so that girls can do them throughout the month and participate in the live event the fourth Tuesday of the month.
