.Petals, Leaves, Badges and Patches! The girls of Troop 1806, within their respective patrols, and also as a troop, have a wide selection of badges, patches, Journeys and activities to choose from when planning their program. Troop 1806 Daises work on their petals, leaves and Journeys, and now have new badges this year! Troop 1806 Brownies and Juniors can work on badges and patches described in their respective Girls Guides to Girl Scouting, as well as the Girl Scout Leadership Journeys. A bunch of new badges and Journeys, mostly STEM and Outdoor related, were introduced in the summer of 2017, but we are still trying to figure them out. The GSUSA Badge Explorer shows all the available badges, along with a brief description of the requirements to earn them.
Troop 1806 Scouts of all ages and program levels can also work on Council badges and patches. And if that’s not enough, girls can work on badges and patches from other Girl Scout councils around the United States! Our Junior Girl Scouts can work on the Bronze Award, the third highest award in Girl Scouting.
Journeys: In addition to the badges, GSUSA has “Journeys.” These are pre-packaged, goal-oriented programs, based on a specific leadership, STEM or outdoor theme. Journeys are the foundation of what GSUSA calls the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. The Journeys are designed to provide opportunities for girls to work in teams, learn about topics of personal interest, and grow as they use a variety of leadership skills to complete challenges. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience supports girls as they discover their values, connect with others, and take action to make the world a better place through a series of fun activities for them to do, think about, and discuss.
