How to earn a Certificate or Patch
Girls can participate in the Girl Scout Ranger Program through a troop, event, travel, or camp experience, and will be awarded a program certificate and/or patch upon completion for their Girl Scout grade level.
While the program does not require a specific number of hours of participation for each Girl Scout grade level, it is important that the program stresses a progression of activities. Younger girls may experience a brief engagement in a short learning activity, and older girls should be challenged to engage in a deeper experience. Certificates are issued by the park after completion of program requirements.
To earn a Girl Scout Ranger patch, Girl Scouts should participate in organized educational activities or volunteer service projects for a minimum of ten (10) hours at one or more national parks.
