Earn a FREE cybersecurity patch

Calling all Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors! Here’s your chance to earn a special cybersecurity patch from Girl Scouts of the USA.

Step One

Choose the cybersecurity activity appropriate for your Girl Scout level as listed in this PDF:

CybersecurityPatch_FacilitatorGuide

These activities are from the Daisy, Brownie, and Junior cybersecurity badges. If you choose to swap out another activity, we highly recommend that you use one from Badge 1: Cybersecurity Basics, since that badge teaches foundational concepts that are built on in badges 2 and 3.

Step Two

Complete the activity and take lots of photos/videos.

Step Three

Share your story and photos from the activity using the Share Your Stories form: www.gscoblog.org/share 

Be sure to include what you learned about cybersecurity and why it is so important, along with any plans you might have to earn another STEM or cybersecurity badge.

Watch this video by a troop of Girl Scout Juniors who earned this special patch.

Once your story and photos have been received, GSCO Public Relations Director AnneMarie Harper will contact you regarding the number of patches you need and where they should be mailed. Patches will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis.

I just wanted to share some pictures from my daughter’s first day of Girl Scout Camp. Lily has been counting down for weeks! This year, she is doing a day camp and is already plotting for overnight camp as a Brownie. Lily woke up at 5 in the morning and packed up all of the items on her list.

Helping our community

Pagosa Springs

Daisy Troop 26237 of Pagosa Springs worked on earning a new petal and the “Eco Learner” badge by helping their community with a trash pick-up day. The girls picked up trash with their parents and troop leaders around Pagosa Springs Elementary School and Pagosa Springs Town Park. The girls also placed quilted hearts for “I Found A Quilted Heart” around the trash pick-up locations to show random acts of kindness and to hopefully brighten someone else’s day. The girls said, “It is so much fun working together and helping our community.”

Hundreds of Girl Scout Daisies explore Denver Botanic Gardens

As many as 350 Girl Scout Daisies, parents, and volunteers gathered at Denver Botanic Gardens for Girl Scouts of Colorado’s annual Daisy Flower Garden Journey on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28, 2019! Daisies toured ten stations and completed fun gardening-themed activities to meet the colorful, global characters at the center of the Daisy Flower Garden, who teach them to live the Girl Scout Law. Activities included playing games, creating flower crowns, yoga, and making an upcycled craft from a Girl Scout cookie package.

Girl Scouts of Colorado is 32,000 strong—more than 22,000 girls and 10,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Ga., she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
