Camp and Outdoors
You live in a world of screens—smartphone! laptop! TV! tablet!—and sometimes you just want to get away from it all. We get it. That’s why you can focus your whole Girl Scout experience on getting outdoors.
You’ll develop the kind of outdoor skills it’s hard to get anywhere
else. Skills like building a campfire, pitching a tent,
or canoeing across a lake. Hey, how about adding some horseback
riding, rock climbing, and archery to the mix? With your troop, at
camp, or on another outdoor program, you’ll find out how much fun it
can be to unplug and explore the world around you.
Troops can visit select GSCO properties and participate in a half or full day of staff led programs! Visit Twisted Pine in Genesee or Hamp Hut in Colorado Springs and spend a half day connecting with your troop and building your outdoor skills with programs in archery, Trail Adventure badge, guided hikes, outdoor art and others. Visit Tomahawk Ranch in Bailey or Sky High in Woodland Park and spend a full day with lunch included enjoying the beautiful camp properties and participating in programs ranging from Wizarding and Fun at the Farm to Life Sized Games, Camp Fun Day and Adventure / Survival.
