What is Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend?
Girl Scouts Love State Parks is a national movement aiming to get ALL Girl Scouts into their state parks on one weekend! Girl Scouts of Northern California girls are invited to attend any State Park on one or both days this weekend and connect with nature by doing something like going for a hike, attending a naturalist program, camping or working on a Take Action project!
Is there a cost for the patch?
The patch will be available through GSUSA for a nominal fee, but the first 100 GSNorCal Girl Scouts to claim their patch through our online form will receive their patch for free!
How will I receive my free patch?
Patches will be available for pick up at your local GSNorCal shop in August 2019.
Do I need to sign-up for Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend?
No sign-up is needed for this weekend. Girls are invited to visit any state park at their own convenience over this weekend. Stay for an hour or spend the whole weekend-it’s up to you! If you plan to attend any special programming within the park or if you’d like to camp, we suggest contacting the park ahead of time to ensure space and availability for those activities.
