Brownie Program Information

Site Map

Brownie Girl Scouts have more opportunities to identify their own interests and decide how they will explore those interests than Daisy Girl Scouts do. Brownies learn about the Girl Scouts and the Girl Scout Law by being encouraged to try new and different activities. It is for this reason that Brownie badges are called "try its". The Brownie Girl Scout Handbook, Try-Its for Brownie Girl Scouts and The Guide for Brownie Girl Scout Leaders are the basic books recommended by the GSUSA. These books can be obtained through the GSHNJ Shops. Use this link to access the GSHNJ's website for the location, hours of operation and directions to the three council shops.

Listed below are the 58 Brownie Try It programs/activities. Links to those programs available online are also provided. Once you've viewed and/or printed the program be sure to hit the back button to get back to this website.
