Community Service

Want to participate in a community service project or try out one of our many patch programs? You’ve come to the right place! GSofSI holds seasonal “Take Action” council community service projects, plus there are patch programs that girls can participate in throughout the year.


Summer "Get Outdoors Challenge" Council Community Service Project
Summer Get Outdoors Challenge
Summer 2019

This summer GSofSI would like to encourage our girls to Get Outdoors and explore together!

Complete as many activities as possible from the list above (must complete at least the required number for your level), then submit your completed checklist and photo(s) by August 26, 2019 to GSofSI to earn your "Get Outdoors Challenge" patch. Be sure to tell us about your favorite activity (and why) or something you learned. 

Share the fun and show off your outdoor skills by submitting photos and videos for our Get Outdoors photo album! 

Post your photos and videos to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #GetOutdoorsGS or email them to 

We'd love to share your photos on our social media platforms! Be sure to include your troop number with your photo!

We have several exciting patch programs for girls to participate in, as well as some Council’s Own badges (Building Bridges, Southern Illinois Explorer and Archaeology in Southern Illinois). To see all available programs, as well as the requirements for each, visit our Forms section.
