Girl Scout Patch Programs

There are four levels of patches for girls to earn: Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Cadette. At each level, the girls do a number of fun educational activities to learn about pets. Safety around animals, the needs of pets, pet overpopulation, and the importance of having proper identification on pets are just a few of the subjects the girls learn about.
