Girl Scout Daisy (K-1)

Daisy_GGGSWelcome Girl Scout Daisies! There are so many things to do in Girl Scouting that are made just for you! From earning your petals and leaves to learning about nature and science or going on a field trip with your troop, Girl Scout Daisies is a great way for girls who are just starting school to make new friends and try new things. 

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting is an all-in-one handbook and badge program that complements Girl Scout Leadership Journeys featured in the tabs below. The guide introduces girls to the Girl Scout experience at every level. It’s an updated badge program focused on life skills for 21st century girls. It’s a scrapbook and journal so that every girl can make every experience uniquely her own. And, it’s designed to work with Girl Scout Leadership Journeys to provide girls with the benefits of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Learn more.

Girl Scout Daisy Uniform

Girl Scout Daisies wear the Girl Scout Daisy Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying their membership in a worldwide Girl Scout/Girl Guide organization. Girl Scouts at the Daisy level also wear a tunic or vest to display official pins and awards. The unifying look includes wearing the tunic or vest combined with a solid white shirt and khaki pants or a skirt.

This “uniform” is required when girls participate in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scout Movement (such as in a parade or while performing community service).

Uniform components can be purchased at our council shops or online.
