Council's Own Patch Program

We have updated our Council’s Own Badge. Our council covers almost the exact same counties as the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area. For this reason, our badge is all about Lincoln! We hope you will travel to some of the many historic Lincoln sites in central Illinois, learn new things, and have fun! Download the Council's Own Badge Book to get started.

When the patch requirements are complete, follow these three steps to obtain your patches:

  1. Complete the patch order form/evaluation.
  2. Include payment for the number of patches ordered ($1.50 each).
  3. Return the order form and payment to your local GSCI Service Center

    OR mail to:
    Girl Scouts of Central Illinois
    Decatur Urban Program Center
    1100 E. Pershing Rd.
    Decatur, IL 62522
