Summertime is Lobstah Time: Earn the Maine Lobster Patch

Maine Lobster PatchHeading 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.
