Patch Programs and Council’s Own Patches
Please note that some patch programs and council’s own patches may not be listed. Some of the activities created by the legacy councils that now form Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles are similar but may have different requirements, so please inquire with regional program staff for more information. Patches are available in our council stores, unless otherwise noted. For store contact info click on the SHOP tab at the top of the page.
2015 Tournament of Roses Patch Program
The Tournament of Roses Patch Program is designed to teach girls about the Tournament of Roses Parade and the preparations required to make it happen, the role of volunteers in the parade, and related places of interest in Pasadena. Click here for the patch program requirements and here for the download and evaluation form. Each year a girl completes this program, she only needs to add the dated bar patch; click here for an example.
