Did you know you can earn a badge for just about anything that interests you? Yep, you can! Girl scouts is interesting in so many ways but for most girls earning badges is very important. Its a total confidence booster and entertainment of course. If you like arts and crafts, there’s a badge for it…if you like bird watching, there’s a badge for it….cooking, music, painting, health…the list goes on and on.
You might be wondering, well how do I go about getting some of these badges? Easier than you think!
Each girl scout troop does things a little bit differently, so the best way to know for sure is to check with your troop leader but this is a general overview.
For each badge there’s specific tasks you have to accomplish, such as picking up Skunk Poop from your local park. Some are small and simple and others are difficult and take periods of time, but trust me stick with it…it will be absolutely worth it. Once you’ve finished all the neccesary tasks you will get your badge, usually in some sort of ceremony. I’ve seen girls with 2 or 3 sashes full of badges, that’s dedication!
So what are you waiting for?! Get out there and earn those badges girls!
