Uniform Vest Placement

These badges should go where #17 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide as it is part of the Brownie Outdoor Journey set.

It is an option to put these badges where #10 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide, when not intending to earn the Outdoor Journey, at all in the 2 years as a Brownie Girl Scout. However, placing it where #17 is often preferred to free up space for other skill-based badges where #10 is as well as to allow the option of earning the full Journey later without having to move the badge later.

The Outdoor Journey does not have to be in a specific order, or placement. Just place all 4 badges in the same area together.

Many prefer the Brownie Outdoor Journey to be a larger triangle, similar to the WoW Journey Set, except with the point upwards. This is due to the Brownie First Aid badge being the only badge that is supposed to have the triangle point downwards. First Aid can fit inside the larger triangle of the other 3 badges. Many also just put them in a row with the Take Action badge at the end of the row of the 3 Official badges. Neither of these are a standard formation.

You can place badges as you earn them, you do not have to wait until all 4 badges are earned. If you never earn all 4 badges, these can still be placed on the Journey side of the vest.

(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.)
