Girl Scouts facilitates unique outdoor experiences for girls. For example, 50 percent of girls who completed the Girl Scouts Research Institute’s camping and outdoor survey said that Girl Scouts provided them with opportunities to experience the outdoors in ways they could not have otherwise, and about three-fourths said that Girl Scouts gave them the chance to build their skills or try new outdoor activities. Nearly two-thirds of girls (62 percent) said they either “enjoyed” or “enjoyed a lot” almost all of the outdoor activities they participated in through Girl Scouts. Campers at the GSCM day camps will engage in activities that include: archery, rock-wall climbing, geo-caching, science exploration and meeting animals living in GSCM’s Caitlin Dunbar Nature Center.
