Bugs badge--ideas from a volunteer: Camping with your Brownie troop? Learning how to enjoy ALL aspects of the outdoors can be a challenge - help them enjoy it by working on the Bugs Badge. Our troop did a scavenger hunt to see how many bugs they could find near the camp site, listened to and observed bugs with an entomologist dad, made a bug poster, performed skits about bug habitats (cocoons, hives, etc.), and made a bug swap.
