Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend
Girl Scouts Heart of the South (GSHS) and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) announce their first-ever Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend July 13–14 for girls to experience the great outdoors, an integral part of the organization’s all-girl leadership program. Join GSHS and thousands of girls in hundreds of state parks across the United States to find adventure, explore nature, and learn what Girl Scouts is all about.
The legacy of Girl Scouts and the outdoors is profound. Studies show that 71 percent of girl members ages 8–14 tried their first outdoor activity through the organization and half would not have had access to outdoor activities and programming if not for Girl Scouts. GSUSA’s cutting-edge environmental conservation; camping; and outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programming is rooted in a passion for adventure and healthy risk-taking combined with taking action to protect the environment for present and future generations. Girl Scouts wants to get even more girls outside through Girl Scouts Love State Parks.
The first 100 Girl Scouts who visit a State Park, snap a picture, and submit it online at www.bit.ly/GSHS_State_Park can earn a FREE Girl Scouts Love State Park fun patch! All submissions due by Friday, July 19 at 5 p.m.
The fun and adventure is endless at our state parks! How will you spend your weekend?
