Multi-Level Matches

Check out other badges that might work well with this badge when doing activities with multiple levels.  These are simply suggestions and may take some creativity and extra steps to earn all the badges in various levels.

A Multi-Level Troop will need to do extra steps when earning different badges across levels. It depends on how many requirements overlap. Some will only have one or two matching requirements.

If there is no badge in a level, we suggest that a level earns a Fun Patch related to the rest of the badges instead of an official badge.

  • Daisy – Fun Patch (Between Earth and Sky only loosely correlates)
  • Brownie – Fun Patch (Bugs badge and WoW Journey does not correlate)
  • Junior – Fun Patch (Flowers badge and Get Moving Journey does not correlate)
  • CadetteBreathe Journey – add air quality information (Trees does not correlate)
  • SeniorSky (Sow What Journey does not correlate)
  • Ambassador – Fun Patch (Water badge does not correlate and Justice Journey only loosely correlates)

Uniform Placement

This Journey badge set can go where #21, #22, or #26 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide.

Note – Journey badges can go anywhere on the left side of the vest, and in any order. Outdoor Journey does not need to go above the traditional.

(Note – Badges and pins on a sash simply go in order (top of sash to bottom of sash) of Identification badges, bridging badge, pins, journeys, and other badges. Anything that does not fit on the front can be placed on the back of the sash. Sashes will not hold a lot of badges and vests are recommended if you plan to earn badges.)
