Girl Scout Brownie ready to change the world!

Brownies (Grades 2-3)

Hello Troop Leaders and Girls!

These videos and activities are designed to give you ideas for adapting badge steps in a virtual environment. Watch the videos, read the instructions, and add any necessary adaptations to meet your troop’s needs. We don’t recommend playing the videos at troop meetings—but they’re great if a girl is doing a badge step on her own or had to miss a session!

Girl Scout Brownies is the second level in Girl Scouts and is open to girls in grades 2-3.
