Outdoor Challenge Restart

We are kicking off a reboot of the Outdoor Challenge patch program with some key changes going forward. We hope that these changes will help get the program back on track. You will now be able to find all your outdoor challenge patch information on one page: https://www.statecollegegirlscouts.org/outdoor-challenges.


We will no longer be shipping patches. All patches will need to be picked up from the Service Unit. Once your order is ready, you will get an email letting you know how to arrange a pick up time.


Going forward we will ONLY be accepting online payments using a credit card via PayPal. We will no longer have an option to pay with a check.

Patch Designs

The new patches will NOT include a year. Instead we will simply change the design whenever we run low on inventory of the current patch. You will be able to pick from any available patch designs when you order.

The new patch will be available for preview before the winter challenge completes. If you know an artistically inclined Girl Scout who is interested in submitting a patch design, please have her email her design to outdoorchallenge@statecollegegirlscouts.org. If your patch is selected for production, your troop leader (or parent) will receive a $25 gift card to the Girl Scout shop.


Going forward we are committed to having all orders fulfilled within 30 days. We sincerely apologize for the delays in order fulfillment for the past year. If you paid for patches that you never received, please email outdoorchallenge@statecollegegirlscouts.org.

Challenge Items

We are going to try to add a variety of more specific local activities to keep the challenge interesting. We also encourage anyone to submit an idea to be included on the next challenge! If your submission makes it onto a challenge list, your next patch is free!
