3 Cheers for Animals!

Girls explore the beauty of nature, learn the many ways to care for animals, and embark on an animal adventure. Girls will also use their knowledge and creativity to teach others how to care for animals

If working with a mixed level troop, the Brownies Pets, Bugs, and First Aid badges integrate well.

A World of Girls

In A World of Girls, Brownies discover different cultures around the world and see how storytelling can inspire us to help others. Then girls may team up to tell their own stories through theater, crafts, painting, or even by developing their own advertising.

In this Journey, you will:

  1. Find out about girls around the world and how stories can give you ideas for helping others—play a game from another culture, invite storytellers to talk about what they do, or draw a self-portrait that shows what’s unique about you.
  2. Plan a Take Action Project, such as sewing a quilt, painting a mural, writing a play, or creating your own ad.
  3. Earn 4 leadership awards: Hear a Story Award, Change a Story Award, Tell a Story Award, and Better World for Girls! Award. If you’re a Girl Scout volunteer, go to Volunteer Toolkit for complete meeting plans and activity instructions.

Adventure Camper

When you plan an adventure, like kayaking, mountain biking, or rock climbing, you can combine it with overnight camping to make the most of your outdoor experience. Adventure camping requires minimal equipment and gear because you’ll be active during the day and possibly moving campsites. Some adventure campers bring nothing but a sleeping bag, lightweight stove, some food, and a backpack. Whatever spells adventure for you, start by listing the things you want to do – then make your camping trip happen!

  1. Plan your adventure camping trip.
  2. Gather your camping gear.
  3. Plan and prepare your trip meals.
  4. Use a camping skill on your trip.
  5. Go adventure camping.

When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll have planned and gone on a camping trip with a group of Girl Scouts or family members that includes adventure activities.
