What do Girl Scout Brownies (grades 2-3) Do?

Girl Scout Brownies begin earning the traditional Girl Scout badges, explore their world through Girl Scout journeys, and perform simple community service projects. They also receive participation patches for attending fun events!

Brownie Meetings

A typical Brownie meeting consists of games, songs, crafts and more, including attending council programs. Brownies can earn badges by trying new activities and going places. They engage in Journey activities to learn leadership skills. Girls learn these concepts cooperatively, so they make new friends and try new things together. 

Brownie Troop Leaders work with girls to determine interests and help them choose activities within the framework of the Girl Scout program. Parents are asked to support the leader by helping where needed, such as with transportation, group snacks, or family outings.

Brownie Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting

This all-in-one badge book and handbook is your guide to your Brownie adventure. It complements the Girl Scout Journeys by helping girls build skills to become successful and gain the confidence to do amazing things!

Journeys For Girl Scout Brownies

On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action.

All Brownies in a troop work together on the same journey, which is decided at the beginning of the Girl Scout year.

The Brownie Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, the Brownie Journeys and all patches are available at our council's Service Centers and our online shop

What is the Brownie Uniform?

Girls can wear the Girl Scout Brownie Pin as a sign of their belonging to the Girl Scouts of the USA. Brownies can also wear a uniform vest or sash to proudly display their badges and patches! Each troop decides which components of the official uniform to wear to represent their Girl Scout troop.

All components of the Brownie uniform are available at our council's Service Centers and our online shop
