Maddy O. and her patch design

Complete 10 tasks about Camp Archbald and e-mail or mail the request back for your special edition girl-designed 100th anniversary patch! Our patch was designed by Maddy O. from troop 50774! The boxes include everything you need to complete the activities and takes an average of 2.5 hours to complete, with 3+ hours for younger girls. 

Check out this pic of Maddy and her patch design! Her design was chosen from over thirty submissions from Girl Scouts of all ages, all girl members of Girl Scouts in the Heart of PA. All submissions will be on display at our S’more Fun event in September.
