Girl Scouts of all levels can build their outdoor skills through brand new, mailed-to-you activity boxes, progressing through beginner, intermediate, advanced, and adventurer levels. Activities are focused on outdoor ethics, first aid and safety, outdoor cooking, camping skills, Girl Scout traditions, navigation, and more!

Girls will become ace outdoor adventurers as they practice leadership, perfect important outdoor skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature.  They develop skills by practicing the activities more than once. Many activities are similar to those included in the Proficiency Badge requirements. Badge have been noted throughout the patch requirements. For the girls to truly master each skill, please practice each skill repeatedly rather than double-dipping. In addition, make sure the girls are learning by doing, not just by listening.

Kits will be mailed out once a month on the 15th.  Girls will receive the Outdoor Skills patch and a log for each level that they complete!

Girl Scout Daisies - Ambassadors begin at the Beginner level and continue sequentially, at their own pace, to complete any or all levels. Girls may start at the Intermediate level if they have completed at least 2 summers at a GSEMA summer camp. Girls should progress through the program according to their needs and abilities, and based on the Safety Activity Checkpoint guidelines.
