Council's Own Badges

Each Council within Girl Scouts of the USA has the opportunity to create council-specific badges that relate to unique qualities of their council. The following guidelines outline the appropriate considerations for creating a Council’s Own Badge for Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council and the necessary requirements to apply for one.


GSACPC Council’s Own Badges and Patches

Council sponsored programs also include special badges and patches developed around particular themes relevant to Girl Scout program emphases. To earn the badges and patches, girls are required to complete a number of activities specified and a number of other activities involving the service to our community. Council sponsored badges and patches are available to troop, groups, individual girl members and individual troop members.

Council’s own badges and patches are developed by members of the Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus Pine Council to meet the needs and interests of girls in Arizona. Badges may be worn on the front of the Girl Scout vest or sash while, patches may be worn on the back.

Please see below for a complete listing of updated Council’s Own Patch and requirements. As they are updated, council’s own patch links will be made active.
