A Girl Scout Junior in a tree


From the backyard to the backcountry, Girl Scouts has a long and storied history of getting everyone outdoors. In fact, many Girl Scouts tell us “camping trips” are one of the best things about their Girl Scout experience! It’s true: connecting with the great outdoors and making a difference is a big benefit of belonging to Girl Scouts.

By earning outdoor badges, completing an outdoor Journey, or attending outdoor programs, your Girl Scout will build leadership skills, overcome challenges, and learn how to protect the environment. Girl Scouts is the perfect place to introduce the outdoors to young people.

Outdoor Adventures and Camp

GSEMA camps and outdoor adventures provide unique opportunities for Girl Scouts to take the lead and take action in ways that build their courage, confidence, and character. Whether your Girl Scout attends an in-person event or explores the outdoors from home, they'll get to be a decision-maker with leadership opportunities in every program.

Outdoor Badges

Awards and badges are a great way for Girl Scouts to explore interests and learn new skills—and show the world what they've accomplished. Explore the outdoor badges they can earn on the Girl Scout Badge Explorer.

Outdoor Journeys

On an Outdoor Journey, your Girl Scout will get outside to explore and enjoy nature while completing a sustainable Take Action project. Activities ranging from backyard camping to high-adventure exploration build essential outdoor skills and inspire young people to become environmental stewards.  Explore outdoor journeys by grade level.
