2011 GSUSA Program Information

2011 Program

Girl Scouts USA changed its program entirely in 2011. They changed from a printed handbook to a binder with individual badge pamphlets. There is an official handbook included in the binder with minimal information on the Girl Scout program and the 4 additional award pins girls could earn in that level.

There are 7 legacy badges, 2 cookie business badges, and 2 financial badges included in the original binder of every level, except Daisies (who have the petals instead of legacy badges) and Cadettes (who have 3 cookie business and financial badges instead of 2).

Three Girl Scout Journeys (Now commonly called the traditional 3 Journeys) were released in 2011. Four new options as Journeys were released between 2017 and 2019 for all levels. All Journeys require a Take Action Plan. Three of the 7 Journeys need to be completed to earn a Journey Summit Award for any level.

2011 also had 3 sets of 5 additional skill base badges (15 total additional badges) for all levels except Daisy and Ambassador. Each set was associated with one of the 3 traditional Journeys but could be earned on their own without doing the Journey.

Additional badges have been released yearly from 2015 to current date. Daisies got their first flower shaped badges in 2017 with additional Daisy badges released yearly to current date.
