Spending time in the outdoors is a cornerstone of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Outdoor experiences in Girl Scouts provide opportunities for girls to discover, connect, and take action in ways that build courage, confidence, and character. These experiences increase girls’ understanding and curiosity about the natural world and shape girl leaders who are environmentally conscientious. The all-girl environment and proven programming show girls the benefits of outdoor experiences in ways that encourage them to take healthy risks and overcome their fears.
To make all of this possible, we need dedicated and talented staff to help teach girls new skills and keep them safe as they explore new camp experiences. Most of your time will be spent outdoors doing fun activities with girls such as camping, hiking, archery, swimming, canoeing, and arts and crafts—depending on your skills and interests.
