Council Patch Program

Explore your interests and expand your horizons by working on patches and badges created just for you! Girl Scouts of Central Texas offers additional patches, badges, and recognitions that are not listed in your program-level handbooks. Some of the patch programs were written by fellow Girl Scouts as a Silver or Gold Award project. The patches are worn on the back of the Girl Scout’s sash or vest.

Monthly Patch Program

Looking for some additional fun activities for your troop or just to do on your own? GSCTX offers a Monthly Patch Program! Each month a new patch will be offered. You'll have the entire month to complete all requirements of the patch. (For some patches your time frame is extended to allow enough time to complete all requirements.) If you complete all the patches for the year you will earn an exclusive 2016 Monthly Patch Program Patch! 

Each patch program includes:

  • A specific program area of concentration.
  • The opportunity for girls to discover, connect, and take action.
  • Activities for all Girl Scout age levels.
  • Additional listing of resources to help with executing the patch program.

When you have completed the patch program each month, place your patch order through eBiz ($2 each) by the 15th of the following month. Patches will be mailed to you after the monthly deadline. This usually means that you will receive patches 4-6 weeks after the registration deadline. For example, February patch registration ends on March 15; the patches are then mailed out 4-6 weeks after that date in mid-April.

April: Wells Fargo Financial Literacy

April: Wells Fargo Financial Literacy

A 2013 GSUSA study revealed that 94% of girls would rather make their own money than rely on their parents, and 80% would rather make their own money than marry someone who would support them financially. Girls feel strongly that financial responsibilities should be shared, with 86% saying that both household partners should make financial decisions yet only 12% considering themselves very confident making financial decisions. We can change that!

GSCTX and Wells Fargo know that every girl is a part of the future of our economy, and we want to ensure they are confident in their financial decision making. We’re so excited to partner with Wells Fargo Hands on Banking® to make this possible! Start the fun!

May is Celiac Awareness month. It is a time to reflect on those who are negatively affected by foods that contain gluten. Gluten is a type of protein that is found in several foods such as wheat, barley, and rye. There are other common food allergies to be aware of as well. By completing these activities you will learn more about celiac disease and other allergies, and be sensitive to those who are affected.

The first 30 people to complete all 10 of these activities will receive a copy of the book The Adventures of Celia Kaye by Kaitlin Puccio. Start the fun!

June: Rewild Your World!

Texas is legendary, and the best way to experience the beauty, history, and excitement of Texas is in a Texas State Park. There are more than 90 state parks in every corner of Texas waiting to give you a new story to tell.

Will your story include gasping at the majesty of Palo Duro Canyon, or marveling over the towering pines of Tyler State Park? Or maybe tubing the Frio River at Garner, casting a line at Inks Lake, or surfing the dunes at Monahans Sandhills? Is it standing where Texas Independence was won at San Jacinto? Whatever it is you love: Gulf Coast beaches, Hill Country views, vibrant forests, prairies and plains, lakes and rivers, or desert mountain mesas, there’s a perfect State Park for you. Start your adventure today!
