Fortunately I just purchased all the ones I've been asking about! Of all the ones that are currently out of stock, is the Bugs badge that is a current one! How funny is that? Everything else is available!

They retired them for good where most councils don't stock the badges anymore about a year ago.

I don't have my books with me. I know I looked at the new badges, but don't remember seeing one specifically like that. I could check again, but it will probably be a couple of days before I get a chance.

The Journey badges are specific to the Journey book.

Keep Sparking!

How long ago did they retire the badge?? I believe I saw it in the Journey book, which is why I was asking about it!

It is actually the Animals badge and it is a retired badge. www.gs-sybaquay.org/pdfs/Badgework/M

Girls are always allowed to earn retired badges, but they can sometimes be hard to find to purchase.

There are also badges called 'council's own' and there is a pets badge from a Tennessee council. www.girlscoutcsa.org/content/uploads

Again, I would call to see if they still have the badge in stock. 1-800-474-1912

I recommend purchasing the Brownie Girl Guide. There are badges in there in addition to the badges girls can earn with the journey books. The badges in the Girl Guide can be earned individually, similar to the former try-its. The Girl Guide may also help you understand the big picture of how the journey's are meant to mesh with the badges.

Good luck!

Keep Sparking!

I was wondering if I had my Brownie volunteer at the Humane society if that would count as a way for her to earn the Pets badge, or if I should have her be in charge of our family cat's needs more?? I only have inserts in the Journey book for a few badges and their requirements, and don't even know which ones are worth buying so that I can have all the info! I wish I could just have a full listing of what you have to do for each badge, or even be able to read all about them online! It has been very frustrating at times :-(
