Excited to go camping for the first time? Want to try your hand at coding your first website? Ready to work towards climate justice? As a Girl Scout, there are so many ways to try something new or take a passion to the next level. Badges and Journeys will build your skills and show the world what you’re capable of accomplishing.
Start exploring a world of possibility.
When girls take the lead, great things happen! Even though your girl’s daily routine may have changed, there are many ways she can still participate in Girl Scout activities and earn awards, even at home!
Explore your interests and expand your horizons by working on patches and badges created just for you! Be creative at home by completing the required steps at home or virtually with your troop. Each patch program offers a curriculum for every age level.
Explore patches, badges, and recognitions that are not listed in your program-level handbooks! You can check out all available patches through our Council Patch Program. We'll also be adding new patches below that are great to do as a family from home!

It’s in our Girl Scout DNA to help in a time of crisis. For those that are healthy and want to help others, there are multiple ways to help those in need during the novel coronavirus outbreak. But how can we do so responsibly? In some cases, you don’t even need to step outside your home to help in a meaningful way.
This guide is a starting point for ideas you and your family can contribute to the community, whether it’s safely helping with COVID-19 outbreak efforts or taking action for community betterment.
While you might not be able to meet with your local Girl Scout friends during this time, you CAN connect with other Girl Scouts across the country! Here are more at home resources, live streams and more our sister councils are sharing:
Many of our sister councils are offering Girl Scouting at Home ideas too. If your Girl Scout has already earned the badges or Journeys we are providing content for, consider checking out another council's information!
Resources to Meet Virtually
Below is a list of free and low-cost tools troops and Communities in other councils are using for virtual meetings. While we cannot endorse or support specific online meeting tools, we encourage you to look at these and alternative options and discuss with parents and girls to determine what the best solution is for your troop or Community needs.
While all of these options have a free version, please note you may be prompted to consider their upgraded versions for a subscription fee.
*As Girl Scouts, we live by the motto "be prepared" - and that includes when the unexpected happens. The safety and well-being of our members and their families are of paramount importance as we all navigate through the COVID-19 situation together.
