Junior Badge/Journey Requirements and Activities

Who are Juniors?

Juniors are in the 4th and 5th grade

Juniors take on most responsibilities for their troops and act as leaders and managers. They work with younger girls and in the community.

Junior Meetings and Badges
Juniors make most decisions about their troop and can run their own meetings. They gain tremendous confidence through planning their troop's activities for the year.

They collect dues, keep records, assign and carry out tasks and organize short trips.

They earn badges, which require some skill and proficiency.

Juniors may also work on the Leadership Award, Junior Aide, and the Bronze Award.

As a Junior, you might ... 

  • Volunteer at an animal shelter, making a nicer temporary home for the animals
  • Plan and host a dance in your community
  • Connect with a Girl Scout who lives overseas
  • Work together to organize a Badge workshop for Brownies
  • Manage your group's finances
  • Earn the Bronze Award, the highest achievement for a Junior
  • Sell cookies to pay for a trip
