Girl Scouts: Get Out the Vote (New Outdoor Badges)

Girl Scouts in the 21st century has always disappointed me in the limited number of outdoor experiences compared with when I was a girl. Yes, I was blessed to have a leader who was taking us backwoods camping by seventh grade. But there simply weren't the badge options - or that visible opportunity - for girls these days, unless you had a leader who enjoyed the outdoors.

That is slowly starting to change.

Girl Scouts can vote on new outdoor badges through Nov. 30, 2014

Girl Scouts is adding one new badge for the Brownie, Junior, Cadette, and Senior levels. Girls can take this short survey and help Girl Scouts of the USA choose the theme: outdoor environment, outdoor survival or outdoor recreation.

This survey runs through Nov. 30, 2014. You can vote as often as you like! The badge topic with the most votes wins!
