2017-18 Girl Scout Badges and Projects 

The Studio is offering programs for all levels of Girl Scouts from September 2017 through May 2018. 

 

A few notes on our programs:

 

  • Programs may not meet all badge requirements (though most do).

  • Just for Fun Projects receive a patch from The Studio. Troops provide their own badges/petals.

  • Programs are limited to 12 participants; if you have more than 12 girls, please call us (518-823-4053) and we will determine how best to accommodate your troop!

  • Pre-registration is required.

 

If you would like to schedule a program for just your troop or at YOUR location we can do that too! Just give us a call at (518) 823-4053.
