Girl Scouts at Home

No matter where you are, every girl can have fun through Girl Scouts at home! Whether you are participating as a Juliette or in a troop—all girls can add to their Girl Scout experience through at-home enrichment activities—like earning badges, attending virtual events, trying out patch programs, and more.

What’s New This Season

Virtual Events

Our program staff are excited to bring Girl Scout programming straight to your living room! Check out our current listing of virtual events.

“Every virtual event has been awesome! It has really helped my daughter earn badges and stay involved during this time.”

 

Resources for Girls & Families

Earn Badges & Awards

Did you know all girls can earn badges on their own? See a list of badges and awards available for your program grade level in the Award and Badge Explorer. Then, purchase the badge requirements from the online shop or checkout Girl Scouts River Valleys free activity plans on the volunteer website. Once you have completed the badge requirements, you can purchase the badge directly from our online shop. There is no need to submit proof of completion in order to place a badge order.

While these activity plans were written with the troop experience in mind, most activities can be adapted to do on your own or with the family.

Girl Scout River Valleys Activity Plans

Girl Scouts of the USA is partnering with councils across the United States to bring even more virtual badge and award programming to your home. Check out additional at-home badge and award options from GSUSA.

Becoming Me Program Series

Your story is the key to help you BECOME your very best self.

Inspired by themes from Michelle Obama’s Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers, the Becoming Me program will guide girls of all ages to becoming their best selves. This new program is centered around core themes that align with the Girl Scout mission, such as knowing and telling your story, maintaining mental health and wellness, and supporting and nurturing girls on their own journeys.

Over the course of six to eight sessions, girls will work on three badges and a National Service Project as they discuss and dive into who they are and how they can become their best selves.

The Becoming Me program includes:

  • A unique six- to eight-week experience for girls that includes three badges for each of the Girl Scout program levels.

  • A journal activity through which participants reflect on their personal experiences as they answer the question “Who are you, and who do you want to become?"

  • A facilitator guide to help volunteers steer Girl Scouts through their journeys, as well as free digital downloads, such as modified Becoming  journal content and an excerpt from  Becoming: Adapted for Young Readers.

  • An exclusive Becoming Me patch available for optional purchase.

Access free instructions, badge booklets, and more by visiting girlscouts.org/BecomingMe

Virtual Meeting Plans

There are a variety of reasons your troop may choose to meet virtually—current COVID-19 guidelines, inclement weather, or just an easy way to connect between regular in-person meetings. We have a few virtual meeting plans to get you started. In addition to helping you lead a meeting, we hope they inspire you with great ideas on how to adapt in-person badge activities to a virtual setting. Each plan includes a variety of interactive activities that you can do as a troop—including video, group conversations, hands-on activities, and more.
