Patch Programs

Patch programs provide Girl Scouts an opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities while earning a fun patch. Most patch programs are available to Girl Scouts of all grade levels, and some will list different requirements to complete the patch, depending on grade level.

Completing patch programs will help your girls along their Journey, and may satisfy requirements for certain badges. Patch programs can be completed at any time! Check back for more fun patch programs to be added in the future.

Featured Patch of the Month

Every month we feature a brand new patch program created just for GSWPA! Check back each month for new activities!


March: Traditions
Traditions give Girl Scouts a sense of history—and inspire them to be the best they can be. For this patch program, girls will learn about the history of Girl Scout SWAPS, songs, and flags, practice these traditions with other Girl Scouts, and share their knowledge of Girl Scout traditions with their community.


Program Partner Patches

Heinz Memorial Chapel Patch Program
To earn this patch, girls will discover the history represented in Heinz Memorial Chapel at the University of Pittsburgh, learn more about historical figures and neo-gothic architecture, and bring the knowledge she gains from this experience to other girls.

Pennsylvania Paraoptometric Association - Vision Awareness Patch
Pennsylvania Paraoptometric Association (PPA) would like to offer Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn a Vision Awareness Patch. PPA is an association committed to enhancing the quality of eye care. PPA believe the activities required for the girls to earn this patch will make them more aware of the importance of eyesight and good vision care. The girls’ efforts may even spark an interest in Optometry or related fields. Check out the resource guide they've provided to help GSWPA Girl Scouts earn the patch.
