Resident Camp Survey

Posted on April 24, 2014

Opinions wanted regarding summer camp program offerings. We want to hear from all parents of Girl Scouts. Participate in the survey now. (takes about 15 to 20 min) Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us!”

 

Outdoor Programs are abundant in our beautiful state! They can be led by troop leaders, GSCO volunteers, Girl Scouts, and can also be led in conjunction with other outdoor professionals.

This page includes free resources for troops, volunteers, girls and anyone wanting to get outdoors with Girl Scouts!

List your event on the Girl Scout Activity Finder (calendar) for all Girl Scouts to see! (note: some events  may be charged for posting, if you are doing badge work, or have a free event the posting is often free).

For more information about leading outdoor programs for Girl Scouts, please contact Haley Peel, Assistant Outdoor Programs Director.

This page is under construction, so check back every few weeks to see what has been added! If you have suggestions of other things to include here, please contact Betsy Till, Outdoor Programs Director.
