We’re celebrating Girl Scouts’ 100-year-plus camping legacy and we want you to take part! Challenge yourself to experience the outdoors by spending a night under the stars between October 1, 2019 – September 30, 2020.
Earn an exclusive Every Girl in a Tent Patch for any outdoor overnight stay in a non-permanent structure (think tent, hammock, or quinzhee) with your troop, family, or Girl Scout sisters.
Why It’s Important
Outdoor education is one of the four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Every Girl in a Tent continues a strong tradition in camping and learning outdoor principles such as Leave No Trace. Camping experiences and programs like Every Girl in a Tent afford every girl the opportunity to:
- Explore nature and learn to appreciate and protect the outdoors
- Be challenged to grow in new ways and become better problem solvers
- Unplug from screens and social media – and know that it’s ok to take a break
- Develop leadership skills and become team players
- Have fun exploring and building social bonds within a safe space like Girl Scouts!
After your trip, tell us about your adventure to earn your patch:
- Share the details of your trip and upload a photo here.
- Tag us on social media with #GSEveryGirlInATent.
Patches are available for purchase online while supplies last.
