The Mobile Girl Scout Shop will be in Bowie, MD on June 1, 2013 at St. Edwards the Confessor Catholic Church located at 1940 Mitchellville Road, from 11am to 1pm. Update your uniforms before Troop 3480’s End of Year program and before the 2013-2014 scouting begins in September.

The required uniform for Troop 3480 includes the following:

  • insignia tab and pins (appropriate for level)
  • white shirt

There are also official tunics or vest for the girls based on their level on which girls can proudly display their earned badges and participation patches. Daisies wear blue tunics; Brownies vests are brown; Juniors sport the green vests; and Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors are all decked out in tan vests.

Along with the vests, parents should purchase these essential items:

  • American flag patch
