Blast Off to Brownie!

Bridge to Girl Scout Brownie patchThe Bridge to Girl Scout Brownie Award Patch Even before there were Girl Scouts, there were Brownies—magical elves who did helpful things. Today, girls who become Brownies still help people by going on journeys like Brownie Quest, WOW! Wonders of Water, or A World of Girls with their Girl Scout sisters.

Brownies have a lot of fun together! They sing the Brownie Smile song, sleep in tents, go on hikes, and tell stories around campfires under the stars. (Don't forget to make hot chocolate and S'mores!). They may visit museums or zoos, meet people who have interesting jobs, or exchange SWAPS (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere) with new friends.

You'll learn more about what it's like to be a Brownie by earning your Bridge to Girl Scout Brownie Award. Plus, you'll be taking part in the great tradition of Girl Scout Bridging! As you grow up, you'll continue moving up as a Girl Scout with these special ceremonies.

Earning the Award
To earn the Bridge to Brownie Award, complete the two bridging steps. These steps will help you pass down something you learned as a Girl Scout Daisy and look forward to what's waiting for you at the next level.
