3. Friendship and Communication

Since schools are back in session and it's likely your girls are just getting back into the swing of things. With possibly new troop members, focusing on badges about friendship, communication, and understanding are great topics to start with.

We like to regroup and continue to forge relationships at the beginning of our scouting year. These options show the girls the importance of working together, which will hopefully lay the foundation for your coming year.

We hope you liked our September badge choices. Let us know if there are any good ones we missed!
