Daisies should complete 15 items to earn the patch, Brownies should complete 20 items, Cadettes/Seniors/Ambassadors should complete 35 items.  Adults should follow the Girl Scout Law and try to complete an “Honest and Fair” number of items based on their abilities.

Earn Free Patches

If you enjoy the outdoor challenges and want to help keep them interesting, send us your challenge ideas to earn free patches.

Artistically inclined girls from Service Unit 416 can also earn a $25 gift card to the Girl Scout shop by sending us a patch design. Patch designs should be emailed to outdoorchallenge@statecollegegirlscouts.org. Submissions should include the girl name, troop number, and contact information for her parent/guardian and troop leader.
