Get Outdoors

Exploring the great outdoors is a classic part of the Girl Scout experience. Girls find their strengths and challenge themselves as they navigate activities on the water, at the campsite, and along the trail.

Whether your girl is horseback riding or geocaching with her troop, she’s building her G.I.R.L. skills as she tackles obstacles head on in a supportive, all-girl environment. Every girl deserves an adventure, and GSNorCal is ready to help her find hers.


Outdoor Programs include:

 

Summer Camp  »

GSNorCal's summer camp sessions allow girls to develop a strong sense of self and positive values, build healthy relationships, seek challenges, and have fun while making memories of a lifetime! Whether you love horses, forest trails, beautiful lakes, or pretty much any other outdoor amenity, our summer camps have you covered. 

Our council-operated summer camps are all accredited by the American Camp Association, which signifies safe, high-quality programs that meet industry and government standards.
