Take any Girl Scout activity outdoors, or plan a specific outdoor adventure. Look for inspiration in several places and check out the outdoor-related insignia that Girl Scouts can earn!

  • Discover the national patch programs with many ideas for outdoor activities, like the Girl Scout Tree Promise, Climate Challenge, Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors, and Girl Scout Love State Parks.
  • Use the GSUSA Badge Explorer and filter by “outdoors” to find badges and Journeys with an outdoors theme.
  • In the Volunteer Toolkit, look for the evergreen tree icon in the meeting plans and take that piece of the meeting outside.
