Patch Programs

Patch programs provide Girl Scouts an opportunity to explore your interests, expand your horizons and enjoy a variety of activities while earning a fun patch. Most patch programs are available to Girl Scouts of all grade levels, and some will list different requirements to complete the patch, depending on grade level. These programs can extend over multiple troop meetings and will cover a variety of subjects, such as healthy living, STEM and community service. The patches are worn on the back of the Girl Scout’s sash or vest. Check back for more fun patch programs to be added in the future!
