Here's a small sample of the many badges Girl Scouts can earn


Big Learning, Huge Fun!

Girl Scout badges are a great way for a girl to explore her interests and learn new skills—and to remember every adventure and show the world what she’s accomplished.

Activities That Spark Her WOW

What is she passionate about? Does she dream of making her own movie, cooking food from a different country, or going geocaching? Sleeping under the stars, writing a book of short stories, or planting a garden?

Or maybe she wants to invent something new, paint a masterpiece, or learn about endangered wildlife. Star in a play, design a website, or go kayaking. Even turn her bedroom into a jungle, run a successful business, or go on an amazing trip.

Well guess what? At Girl Scouts, she can do all that and more, and earn Girl Scout badges as she goes!

And if she wants to jump into a topic that’s not part of the badge program, we have her covered. At Girl Scouts, a girl can earn a badge based on almost any subject with the Make Your Own Badge option. It’s easy! All she has to do is figure out what she wants to learn and who can help her learn it, jump online, and design her very own badge. The sky’s the limit!
