Patch Programs

Girls love to earn badges and Journey awards that they can display on their uniforms, but that’s not all–there are patches too!

Patches can celebrate a troop activity like: a trip to the skating rink or a sleep over in the leader’s basement. Girls can also earn patches by completing programs unique to our Council: explore STEM, learn basic skills needed for first-time outdoor exploringor experience Courage through Susie Stephens. Upon completion of the program, girls can purchase the patch from our Shop. Girls from any Council are welcome to participate and order their patches from our Council Shop.

A Susie Forest Patch

The Susie Forest Patch Program was developed in honor of Susie Stephens. Susie was born in April of 1965 and she was a Girl Scout in our very own GSEWNI council. Susie participated in many activities including a trip to Japan with her troop. Her experience in Girl Scouting led her down many interesting paths in life. Susie’s life was cut short in March of 2002 when she was killed crossing a street in a crosswalk. The “Susie Forest” patch represents the movement her mother, Nancy MacKerrow, has started to plant trees in Spokane in honor of her daughter. Nancy’s goal – to have a whole forest of Susie Trees.
