More than S'mores: Successes and Surprises in Girl Scouts' Outdoor Experiences
Girl Scouts has a long history of getting girls outdoors. With increasing technology, activities competing for girls' time, and parent protectiveness, the summary of a national study of the Girl Scout Research Institute explores two basic questions: Are Girl Scouts still getting outside? And what difference does make if they do? Check it out!
Our founder, Juliette Gordon Low loved the outdoors! Our market research says today's girls do, too!
Take the Girl Scout pledge for getting girls outside:
Every Girl Scout deserves to experience the out-of-doors . . .
. . . To smell the grass, hug a tree, stare at a bug, play in a puddle, watch the clouds . . .
. . . To plant a seed, follow a trail, build a fire, cook a s'more, explore a creek, climb a mountain . . .
. . . To camp outside under the stars and dream about her next adventure!
Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways encourages you to share in Juliette's connection to the natural world. We currently operate six camp and program centers located throughout our council area. They include acres of beautiful woodlands and green spaces with cabins, lodges, platform tents, hiking trails, lakes, and ponds. From the foothills of the Catskills, to the sparkling Finger Lakes, to the forests of the Adirondacks and points in between — there’s fun and adventure waiting just for you!
