Earn Badgerland Council Patches
Girls are able to connect with their community on a whole new level through council patch programs!
Research shows that troops who have a varied troop experience (meaning they try an assortment of different activities) have a more enjoyable and more successful troop year. So Badgerland wants to help your troop have their Best Troop Year EVER by giving you some guidance on how to do just that. Beginning this fall your troop can start earning their way through the Best Troop Year Ever by completing activities. Each activity will earn your troop points as you work towards an awesome Best Troop Year Ever patch.
Curious what the patch looks like? Well, so are we! We are excited to announce to announce a patch design contest! Girls and troops can submit their design idea on our website through January 30. More info coming soon!
