Council Patch Program

Patch programs are a great way to explore a wide variety of topics. Detailed booklets describing the requirements for each patch are available below. Have fun exploring, Girl Scouts!



Kindness Patch Program

As Girl Scouts, we all know that within the smallest acts of kindness is the power to change the world for the better. And now, there's a patch for doing exactly that!

In collaboration with the non-profit organization Think Kindness, Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada (with the help of our amazing 2017-18 Girl Board Members Danielle and Baylee) has created the Kindness Patch Program -- a fun opportunity to explore the joys of doing good deeds and become a Kindness Champion! This program is open to Girl Scouts of all ages and consists of five engaging steps. By the end, you will have made your community a better place and inspired others to spread the message of kindness wherever they are.

Kindness Program Patches are now available for purchase in the GSSN Shop. Learn how you can earn your Kindness patch! 


Junior Naturalist Patch Program

Grab your water bottle, sunscreen, and a pencil - it’s time to explore the Arboretum!

Complete the Wilbur D. May Arboretum Junior Naturalist Program along with one additional activity from the “Scouts page” to earn a patch!

The Wilbur D. May Arboretum Junior Naturalist Program is a “leaflet” of fun and engaging activities that has kids discover why the Arboretum is so special! Visit during the spring and summer to see the flowers come alive and put on a dazzling display, or in the fall as the trees show their true colors. Take your time and explore; like a museum’s rotating exhibits, changing seasons mean no two visits at the Arboretum are the same. 

Each patch will cost $1 (cash or check only). Checks should be made out to the "May Arboretum".

For more information, please call 775-785-4153 or email the Arboretum Educator, Mandy,

This program is open to Girl Scouts of all ages.
