Patch Programs

Girl Scout Councils all over the USA have their own badges not available in other Councils. Any Girl Scout, even outside of that council, can earn these badges. They are typically called Council’s Own or Patch Programs.

Each council can make up their own badge or patch program. Rule of thumb: If the badge is same shape and size as the official level badges, it’s official and can go on the front. If it’s not, it’s a program patch and goes on the back of the vest/apron/sash, even if you had to fulfill requirements to get it.

There are two sites that archive a lot of retired Council’s Own:

Some International Girl Scout Councils also have patch programs for those visiting their area.
