Lighthouse Patch


This program, designed by a Suffolk County Girl Scout, promotes learning about the fascinating histories of lighthouses.

To earn this patch, each girl must complete six of the following eight listed activities:

  • Activity 1: Visit a lighthouse in your area. Learn about its history and share your findings with your troop.
  • Activity 2: Create a lighthouse craft, such as building a lighthouse using beach materials. Just use your imagination!
  • Activity 3: Design a lighthouse based on a real one. What’s the significance of its pattern? Why is it a certain shape? What are its surroundings and why? Make a drawing and share it with your troop.
  • Activity 4: Research lighthouses and how they work.
  • Activity 5: Participate in a beach clean-up. Have an adult assist with sharp or rusty objects.
  • Activity 6: Help promote your local lighthouses by creating a brochure for a lighthouse you have visited or would like to visit. Include hours, fees and interesting facts. Share your brochure with your troop, family, friends or school.
  • Activity 7: Interview someone who works at a lighthouse or who has a job preserving historical landmarks. What’s it like to work at a lighthouse? Why is it so important to keep history alive?
  • Activity 8: Learn about lighthouse culture by reading a book or poem, listening to sailor music or studying an artwork related to lighthouses and the sea.
