Heading to the coast this summer? Planning to spend time by the ocean? The Maine Girl Scout Council’s lobster patch is a great Girl Scout activity to do over the summer vacation. You can download the information packet with instructions on how to earn the patch here: Maine Lobster Patch Program. To earn the patch, Girl Scouts must complete the following number of activities, depending on their level.
- Daisies – 4 activities
- Brownies – 6 activities
- Juniors – 8 activities
- Cadettes and up – 10 activities
The activities are about lobster life, their anatomy, families, and habitat, as well as about the lobster industry in Maine. Options include learning how to speak like a lobsterwoman, make a pretend buoy trap marker, and writing a story about lobster life.
Once you have completed the required number of activities, you can order the patch from Girl Scouts of Maine by calling them at: 1-888-922-4763. Or stop by one of their stores and pick up the patch in person. There are two stores: one in Bangor and one in South Portland. See below for the store locations and hours.
