The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting

Every Journey Needs a Great Guide!

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting is a new program resource from Girl Scouts of the USA. The guide offers girls greater variety and relevance than ever before as they embark on exciting new badge-earning adventures in Girl Scouting.

Each program level – Daisy through Ambassador – will have its own customizable Girl’s Guide. Each guide will include: a variety of badge offerings, handbook sections covering traditions and history, Cookie badges, an awards log and much more!

Important note regarding meritorious service awards: Nominations for these awards, including the Girl Scout Lifesaving Awards awarded from GSUSA, must be submitted to GSWCF within six months of the heroic act.

Program by Age Level:


Each Girl’s Guide Contains:

A colorful, easy-to-use binder specially designed for girls at each age level. The binder comes full of essential information and badge activities—plus girls get to customize their own experience by choosing and adding in additional badge sets.

Legacy, Financial Literacy, and Cookie Business badge activities—or, for Girl Scout Daisies, petal and leaf activities. For more information about the National Proficiency badges, check out How the National Girl Scout Program Portfolio Works.

A detailed diagram showing where girls place the badges, pins, or awards with pride on their vests or sashes.

Ideas to help girls tie their badges right into their Journeys. Check out the Anatomy of a Badge for a detailed breakdown.

Vintage illustrations and quotes from Girl Scout history to help girls feel connected to the proud traditions of the past.

An awards log showing girls every award and badge available at their level, as well as the entire badge program at every level, so girls can see how their skills will grow in Girl Scouting. Check out the National Proficiency Badges to view badge progressions by grade level.
