The troop is not paying for these classes. I am paying out of my pocket. Are these Deductable as part of my service to Girl Scouts?

Yes. Charitable contributions include your expenses incident to providing services to a charity. Your mileage for the day trips is also deductible, provided there is no significant element of personal pleasure, recreation, or vacation involved.
