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 (no equivalent)
- Brownie – Fun Patch (no equivalent)
- Junior – Bronze Award – small group or troop ideal, but can be done solo with friends and family helping
- Cadette – Silver Award – solo or small groups
- Senior – Gold Award – solo
- Ambassador – Gold Award – solo
The pin should go where #17 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide.
If you chose to get the patch for Silver as well, it goes on the back of the uniform with the fun patches.
(Note – Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award pins on a sash go up by the troop numbers, either on the right side of the numerals, or just underneath them above or in line with the membership pins. 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.)
