Get Outdoors

Few experiences match the feeling of being free in nature! We live in a world of smartphones, laptops, and tablets—and sometimes you need to get away from it all. That is why Girl Scouts values the outdoors experience. Learn to build a fire, canoe across a lake, go horseback riding, or become skilled in archery—the possibilities are endless! All while participating in the ah-mazing activities, girls will develop leadership, build skills, learn independence, and develop a deep appreciation for nature.

New Girl's Choice Outdoor Badges

In keeping with the century-old tradition of encouraging girls to be active outdoors, Girl Scouts has introduced all new Girls' Choice Outdoor badges. These new badges – chosen by girls - are made for the awesome adventure seeker, team builder and problem solver. It’s the newest way for girls to explore the outdoors.
