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 program will be offered. You will 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 2015 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 ($2.00 each) by the 15th of the following month. Patches will be mailed to you after the monthly deadline.

July: Coat of Many Colors - Dolly Parton Patch

Country music icon and Girl Scout member Dolly Parton may have come from humble beginnings, but what her family lacked in money they made up for in love. Dolly’s song, Coat of Many Colors, touches our hearts because we can all relate to a little girl being proud of who she was and where she came from...no matter what the world told her to feel about herself.  Patch program created by Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians in 2008 with permission of lifetime member, Dolly Parton.
