More than Camping, Crafts and Cookies

[layerslider_vc id=”14″]As a troop leader, you know all about the three “C”s: camping, crafts and cookies but you also know that there is so much more. Outdoor adventures. Community service. Parties, parades, ceremonies, events, trips and so much more.

If you’ve had great Brownie badge experience, let other leaders know about it with photos on our facebook page or even write a blog and get $40 for your troop to spend at MakingFriends.com

Don’t forget to follow us on facebook. We have a helpful community of over 15,000 leaders who always are ready to help. You don’t want to miss the coupons either!
