  4. Girls and adults must complete the required number of activities for their grade level and submit their patch request form by April 15, 2018 to earn the patch.
  5. Girls and adults are only eligible to earn one patch per challenge. Girls can earn a winter leaf if they have already earned the main patch through the summer challenge.

  8. Girl Scouts from outside of GSWPA are welcome to complete the Get Outdoors Challenge, but will need to pay for their patch and the shipping costs. The cost of the patch is $0.76 and the cost of the shipping is typically $1.25 (may vary depending on the number of patches requested). Out-of-council participants should submit the online form as normal, and then call Customer Care at 800-248-3355 to inquire about the total amount due for the patches.
