Patch Programs

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois offers girls many opportunities to take on new adventures while earning badges. Check out the patch programs available to girls and troops.

Monthly Patch Program

The GSCI Monthly Patch Program is for troops and girls who are interested in additional activities. A new patch program is offered each month for girls to be introduced to a new topic with little preplanning needed for leaders. Use the patch program as meeting filler, a pre-meeting activity for the month, or an at-home project.

When the patch program is complete, follow the link below to order the fun patch and complete an evaluation. Patches are $2 each and will be mailed the following month. Patches must be ordered by the 15th day of the following month.
