Badge Information

At our last meeting some of the parents were asking for a list of badges our girls can earn.  The Girls Scouts have changed the way girls earn badges and have these Journey books that they can work through.  I have two and you are more than welcome to look at them, we may use these latter in the year, it seems like something they could work on alone as a work book.  The older books are awesome, both the Try-Its for Brownie Girls, and the Junior Girl Scout Badge Book list all the badges old and new that the girls can work on.  They list all 10 ways the girls can earn each badge, the brownies only have to do a couple and the Juniors must pick six to complete in order to earn each badge.  Our Councils website is not very detailed when it comes to this information, however I have found a site that is very thorough and easy to use.  It is Palo Alto’s Council Site and you can check it out here for Juniors and here for Brownies.

For the most part I am going to follow a prefab year plan set up by the Girl Scouts River Valleys Council with our troop.  Due to the fact that I am leading two age groups and new to this entirely.  I think it will give the girls a great foundation that we can then run with in the years to follow.

That being said, I would love to have parent involvement in badge earning.  Please bring me your ideas (email is fine) and let me know what you can teach/help our girls do.  I am more than happy to let you have an entire meeting, two meetings, or just 15 minutes.  This is a team effort.  All I want for our troop is to help our girls grow, learn new things, and be involved in our community.
