Think Outside the Book
The Council’s Own patch programs offered by Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson are unique to our council and are written and developed by our very own girls, volunteers and staff. These patch programs provide opportunities to explore topics beyond those in The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting and other GSUSA resources. Unless otherwise indicated, patches may be earned by any age level.
