Here at Girl Scouts of Central California South (GSCCS) we've come up with some pretty amazing exclusive patches. Some of these patches are accredited to other Councils and GSUSA. Clicking the below links will take you to the specific page for more information about our patches. And be sure to check back often as we continue to add more exclusive patches!
Help us celebrate our founder Juliette Gordon Low with our Year in the Life of Juliette Patch Program! Each month has their own patch activity! Check back to this page for the most updated list.
Due to inventory delays, patches are not available at this time. Your GSCCS Girl Scout can still work on the program and order patches when they are back in stock.
Emergency Preparedness is often approached from a place of fear. Let’s face it, the subject can be daunting and scary. Girl Scouts of Central California South wants to make this subject fun for girls and volunteers. It is the intent of this patch program to take the fear away and replace it with empowered Girl Scouts!
Through this patch program, it is our hope to encourage Girl Scouts to engage in building resilience at the neighborhood level. Once completed, Girl Scouts will not only have taken charge of their learning but will be prepared and capable of taking a leadership role in their families and communities about preparedness.
The requirements for this patch program can be done individually, as a family, or as a troop.
Girl Scouts of Central California South and the Alex Hudson Lyme Foundation have collaborated on a special patch to help educate our girls and their families on ticks and Lyme disease prevention. This booklet is designed with your Daisy, Brownie and Junior Girl Scouts in mind and we have a booklet for our Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts as well. Here at Girl Scouts of Central California South, we know that our girls are powerful leaders in their communities and our hope is they will help spread awareness and knowledge to others to prevent Lyme disease.
Those who knew Alex well would agree that she was full of life, strong-willed and had an unwavering desire to help others. With a perpetual smile on her face, Alex excelled in school, on the field, and within her community. She lived for her faith and wanted nothing more than to bring happiness to those around her.
While Alex’s life was cut short by Lyme disease and MCAS, her mission to help others lives on through the work of AHLF. Working alongside community members, fellow Lyme advocates, and those struggling from Lyme disease and MCAS, the AHLF team carries out Alex’s work through her love, compassion and understanding heart. Alex’s sole mission, besides fighting for her own health, was to help and educate others battling from these debilitating diseases. Together we will keep her legacy alive.

With this in mind why not have your Girl Scout try out that sport she's been wanting to learn more about. Or maybe she wants to hone in on practicing her fencing skills. Check out our Activity Calendar for more Girl Sports opportunities!
