Patches FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can earn council patches?

Any registered Girl Scout who meets the grade level requirements listed can earn a council patch. Girls affiliated with a troop, an interest group or registered as Girl Scout Juliettes may work on council patch programs. Girl Scouts from other councils may also earn these patches.

Can my girls participate in any of the patch programs offered?

Each patch program comes with specific grade requirements. These programs were designed with the abilities of girls in these grades in mind. Please note that leaders should refer to the Safety Activity Checkpoints and the Volunteer Essentials Guide while planning for all troop activities to ensure that the proper training, insurance and guidelines are met to ensure the safety of the group.

Where are council patches worn on a uniform?

Council patches are unofficial recognitions and should be worn on the back of a uniform sash or vest. You can find out exactly where to place all those great badges, patches and other awards in each Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting or online.
