GSUSA Announces the New Outdoor Badges!
Excerpt from GSUSA Email News:
Girl Scouts cast more than 80,000 votes throughout the “Girls’ Choice” process—which marked the first time ever that girls across our Movement were invited to vote directly on a Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) badge series. After choosing “Outdoor Explorer” from a range of outdoor themes, they voted on the type of activities to be linked with each badge, followed by the physical designs.
The winning badges are:
Brownie – Outdoor Adventurer. Girls have a choice of outdoor activities, including wading in a creek, bike riding, and developing a camping skill.
Junior – Horseback Riding
Cadette – Archery
Senior – Paddling. Girls can canoe, kayak, or paddle board.
Ambassador – Ultimate Recreation Challenge. Girls have a choice of five outdoor challenges, including rock climbing, ziplining, and waterskiing.
