Badges

What’s that? You’ve always wanted to…

Make your own movie, build a robot, cook food from a different country, go geocaching, sleep under the stars, write a book of short stories, plant a garden?

Invent something new, paint a masterpiece, be a good neighbor, take amazing nature photographs, make your bedroom into a jungle, run a business, go on an adventure trip?

Become a design engineer, camp with your troop, build a wooden bench, learn to play a musical instrument, or design a website?

Great news! You can learn to do all these things and earn Girl Scout badges as you go. 


Check out new badge activities online at the Girl Scout Activity Zone.

Meet the newest Girl Scout badges

28 new ways for you to explore your world, insides, outside, online, or unplugged!

Earning badges is easier than ever: the new badge booklets now include a volunteer guide and printable activity pages for girls.

Math in Nature (Daisies - Juniors)

After a year of learning inside, it’s time to get outdoors! The new Math in Nature badges build on one another as Girl Scouts learn about shapes, numbers, and design in nature. They’ll plan a hiking adventure, create trail maps, and design a bird feeder—all while learning math concepts and how they apply outside the classroom.

The new Math in Nature badges also boost girls’ interest and confidence in STEM; they’re more likely to connect with STEM concepts when they’re linked to things they love, such as outdoor time and helping others.

Cookie Business (Daisies - Ambassadors)

With more and more consumers shopping online, girls learn to think beyond the storefront and meet their cookie customers where they are through the Digital Cookie® platform. The 13 new Cookie Business badges are packed with activities to support every Girl Scout as they work collaboratively, set goals for themselves, and finesse their digital marketing campaigns. Girl Scouts of all ages will be ready to take their cookie business to the next level!

Digital Leadership (Daisies - Ambassadors)

Technology can help girls empower themselves and others—and by earning Digital Leadership badges, Girl Scouts of every age can do just that! They’ll learn about digital literacy and wellness and use what they’ve learned to raise awareness on a topic or cause they care about.

Girl Scouts are already digital leaders. (PDF) These future-forward badges will support them in using technology to connect with others and create a digital product that makes a positive impact and inspires others to action.
