The Girl's Guide now includes the handbook and the badge book. The Girl's Guide is a record of what girls do in Girl Scouts! Each grade level has a binder with covers picked out by girls that coordinates with the Journey colors. You can also print special 100th anniversary bookplates for Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors to personalize their guides!

Leaders can also check out some tips for using the Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting with Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors, and Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors.

Each binder contains three sections:


The Girl Scout Handbook

Each grade level has their own special version of the handbook! From Girl Scout basics to fun with family and friends, they're packed with information and activities that encourage girls to get their hands dirty, hearts racing and brains whirling.


National Proficiency Badges

In addition to the awards they are earning through the Journeys, the Girl's Guide gives girls the opportunity to earn Legacy badges, Financial Literacy badges, as well as Cookie Business badges at each level.

Sold separately, but easily added to the Girl's Guide are three badge sets related to the Journeys for Brownies through Seniors, each containing 5 badges each for Brownies through Seniors. They offer great examples of ways to incorporate the skills while on a Journey, but can also be used on their own!

  "My Girl Scouts" pages
Girls get their own special pages for journaling, autographs, or whatever they want to do! There are also coloring pages for Daisies, and stickers for Daisies, Brownies and Juniors

In each guide there is also a fold-out section with all the awards for that level. Girls can check off each award they've earned to see how far they've already gone, and what lies ahead for their future in Girl Scouts! Some of these awards include:

Journey Summit Awards
For girls who complete all three Journeys at each grade level.

  My Promise, My Faith
A faith-based award that girls can earn once each year they are in Girl Scouts.

    Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards
The Girl's Guide for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors also include the requirements for earning the three highest awards in Girl Scouting.

Special for Daisies!

Girl Scout Daisies will continue to earn their petals instead of earning badges, with new activities for each petal. However, they now have the option to earn one Cookie Program leaf and one Financial Literacy leaf for each year they are a Daisy.
