Our ProgramsTroop 2702 is proud to have developed several Troop's Own Try Its and Junior Badges. Because our Scouts encourage and inspire us to learn new topics, explore deeper into subjects, and create challenges for them, we will continue to seek interesting and unique activities that incorporate the Girl Scout Law and Girl Scouts of the USA program goals. Ultimately, we seek to help the Scouts to build leadership, develop citizenship, and gain personal achievement through our program.
A badge is a symbol that you have done the thing it stands for often enough, thoroughly enough, and well enough to be prepared to give service in it. You wear the badge to let people know you are prepared and willing to be called on because you are a Girl Scout. Girl Scouting is not just knowing, but doing-not doing, but being. ~ Juliette Gordon Low
- We are challenging each Scout in our Troop to complete the 10 by 10
Challenge - ten service projects by the end of 2010. A special patch
will be offered to each Scout who completes the challenge. The patch
design (sewn out) is shown below. This is a three part patch.
Note (03/2011) We have begun phase two of this patch with the center globe having a year imprinted in white. This patch program is available to any Scout who wishes to attempt it but that Scout will receive only the center patch and the blue 10x10 rocker for the first year of participation. Subsequent years will receive an additional world with the year imprint.
||Emergency Preparedness Patch
- In answer to the call of
the Girl Scout Motto to "Be Prepared" we reviewed several patch
programs and took the best practices from each to create this unique
patch. It offers a variety of interactive activities and all are age
appropriate and covers a multitude of emergency topics including
emergency management, fire prevention, tornado safety, hurricane
safety, earthquake safety, flood safety, and general heath and safety.
Available for Scouts in age levels Daisy to Cadette.
TROOP'S OWN PATCHES
Troop's Own Try Its
Beautiful Mind - a Try It inspired by the challenges faced by several of the Scouts in our Troop and across the United States that allows Scouts to experience physical, emotional, and mental challenges that some individuals have to face each day. Developed and approved in Spring/Summer 2009.
SWAPS - the ORIGINAL Troop's Own
Try It that swept a Council! We are so very proud of our Scouts who
inspired this Try It because they knew all about Girl Scout history,
lore, and tradition... and still wanted more. This Try It was adopted
in Fall 2008 by the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains, Inc. as the
first [GS-TOP] Council's Own Try It. As of June 1, 2011, this
badge has been returned to Troop 2702 since GS USA has adopted program
Troop's Own Junior Badges
|Sun Smart -
a Junior badge inspired by the Texas heat. When looking through the
Junior Badge Book, our Scouts quickly realized that there wasn't a
badge that asked Scouts to try to fry an egg on the sidewalk, learn
about energy efficiency, learn about heating and air conditioning, or
bake cookies on a dashboard... there is NOW! Developed and approved in
the Juniors wanted their own SWAPS badge after the Brownies got
theirs... and you can't have one without the other! Developed and
A.T.A. Girl (Alternate Troop Activities)Girl Scout Troop 2702 supports whole family involvement in Scouting. As such, we developed the A.T.A. Girl program so that our Girl Scouts and their families could interact with one another outside of traditional Troop programs and meetings. This offers our Scouts the unique opportunity to build and explore relationships with one another and their families.
A.T.A. Girl activities are family oriented. We recognize that in the current economic climate, funds may not be available to all families as readily. Therefore, we strive to keep costs low and reasonable with the maximum amount of fun and activity that moms, dads, brothers, and sisters can enjoy without putting a big dent in the pocketbook or wallet.
