Many Girl Scout councils across the United States have special patches that all Girl Scout can earn and the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains in New Hampshire and Vermont are no exception. Click here for a complete list of their council’s own patches and see below for a highlighted patch for every season.
Summer – Sunsational Summer Patch
Open to all levels of Girl Scouts, this patch has tons of different options for activities including going on a theme walk for Daisies, going on a hike or putting on a skit for the neighborhood for Brownies, plan an all-day or overnight outing for Juniors and Cadettes, making a windmill or solar water heater for Seniors and Ambassadors.
Fall – Apple Quest Patch
This patch will bring girls and troops out to an orchard to go apple picking. In addition, girls can also pick activities like baking with apples, learning about the importance of bees to orchards, bring apples to a food pantry, and/or learn about different varieties of apples and where they come from.
Winter – Operation Snowflake Patch
Don’t let the cold weather keep you trapped indoors. Girl Scouts of all levels can earn this patch by learning about winter sports, reading books about the snow, and learning about first aid for frostbite, for example.
Spring – Maple Sugaring Patch
The sap runs when the nights are still cold but the daytime temperatures get above freezing and maple syrup seasons is usually a sign that winter is coming to an end. Girl Scouts of all ages can earn this patch by learning about how maple syrup is made (including the two types of maple trees that produce maple syrup sap), the difference between artificial and real maple syrup, and the important role maple syrup plays in the economies of New Hampshire and Vermont.
All Year ‘Round – A Year in the Life of Juliet Patch
This patches program gives girls and troops a chance to learn more about the life of the founder of Girl Scouts, Juliet Gordon Low. Girls start with the center patch and then build out around the circle with a new activity and piece of the patch each month. Activities may change over time but currently include learning how to be inclusive of girls with disabilities in September, learning about World Thinking Day in February, and learning about how to be a friend to animals in March.
