Girl Scout Junior Badges

Girl Scout Junior Badges

Girl Scout Juniors can work toward a badge at our Scout Workshops conveniently located in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee. We will take care of all the details, including the staff instruction, planning, and meals.

During a lock-in, a Junior Girl Scout can complete some or most requirements for one Junior Girl Scout Badge. All Juniors participate in the same activity and earn their badges together as a group. Groups will select one program and complete the requirements guides by Museum Staff.

We offer lock-in programs for Girl Scout Brownies, Boy Scout Cub Scouts and Boy Scout Webelos as well.


  • Junior Musician Badge: Explore how music is made, travel around the world of music, check out the music in your life, and make and perform music. When you earn this badge, you will know how to make and perform music for yourself!
  • Junior Entertainment Technology Badge: Animate your artwork, dig into video game development, try the science of amusement park rides, create your own special effects, surf a sound wave and learn the science behind the world of entertainment when you earn this badge.
