Badges, Journeys and Awards


Badges, Journeys and Awards are ways for Girl Scouts of all levels to explore, learn, gain skills, and contribute to their communities.


Badges and Journeys

Whatever a girl wants to know, she can find a badge or journey to guide her. Learn to cook over a campfire, study robotics, attend a concert, create a skit, interview a local government leader, and more - the possibilities are endless!

Girls at every level, from Daisies on up, can earn as many badges as they would like. Badge requirements provide age-appropriate guidelines for girls to follow to learn more about topics of interest and develop new skills.

Journeys provide guidance to Juniors and above to take their interests to the next-level. The goal of each Journey is the "Take Action" Project. By designing and carrying out a Take Action Project, girls can think about ways that they can make a meaningful contribution to their community, develop the practical steps to carry out their project, and together with their team accomplish their goal.
