Girl Scout Uniforms
Girl Scouts may choose to wear uniforms at meetings or Girl Scout events to:

  • make them easily identifiable to each other and to the public
  • foster a feeling of unity among members, and
  • reinforce the sense of belonging to the Girl Scout Movement.

A Girl Scout is proud to wear her uniform because it symbolizes the high ideals for which Girl Scouting stands.

As of October 2008, an official sash or vest worn with a white shirt and khaki pants is required when girls participate in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scout movement in any capacity.

Each age level has a different uniform:

Daisy Girl Scouts (ages 5-6) can wear a tunic over their clothes and place their Membership Pin, Learning Petals, and participation patches on them.

Brownie Girl Scouts (ages 6-8) can wear a uniform with either a sash or vest to display their Try-Its and other insignia. Other options include the new Hooded Sweatshirt and Pull-on Pants, introduced in 2004, or various shorts, leggings, skorts, pullover jumpers, turtlenecks, and T-shirts.

 I loved the uniform when I was a kid. Dressing up is part of the fun!

There are several options where to purchase GS uniforms and gear, On-line or at the Girl Scout office New Berlin resource center.

Example of Daisy uniform 2007-2008

I would recommend getting the uniform because of the unity it shows to all the girls at larger meetings. Like Boy Scouts the uniform is a fun part of getting into the spirit of Scouting. We started out slow getting the pieces over time and that made it affordable. Grandparents loved to be involved in this also. Only certain pieces are must have in Girl Scouting – the Apron or the Vest or Sash for example. We need a place to store all those badges and patches!!

You have pins, badges and assorted patches.  Now, where do they go? 

Here’s the answer.  These diagrams show the official placement of each item.  Only official Girl Scout insignia (membership pins, Daisy petals, Try-it’s, badges, Interest Project Patches, Junior Signs, Bronze, Silver and Gold Award pins, membership stars, etc.), belong on the front of the sash or vest.  Everything else – event patches, cookie sale patches, patches and pins purchased while visiting museums, historic sites and the like – should be on the back of the sash/vest.   

You can also find this and additional information at the back of the official Girl Scout catalog.
