From the backyard to the backcountry, Girl Scouts has a long,
storied, and successful history of getting girls outdoors. In fact,
many Girl Scouts say that “camping trips” are one of the best things
about their Girl Scout experience. And it’s true: connecting with
nature in a girl-led setting is a big benefit of belonging to Girl Scouts.
Nu2u is the perfect first time camping experience for new
troops as well as a great opportunity to brush up on your outdoor
skills. GSSEF volunteers provide all the certifications and program,
all you need to do is bring your girls. Participants will explore camp
with activities like canoeing, archery, crafts, hiking and so much more.
Whole troop not ready yet? Bring the ones that are or encourage
them to sign up individually for the program.
Core Camp takes your outdoor skills to the next level! Girls
will compete throughout the weekend in all things Girl Scouts; outdoor
skills, living by the Girl Scout Promise and Law, and Girl
Scout/Camping trivia. Right off the bat, the girls will start earning
points for their unit team by answering trivia questions, being
helpful and courteous in their actions, and using their outdoor
skills. As the weekend progresses girls will hone their skills in
canoeing, archery, hiking, knot-tying, knife safety, first aid and so
Girls will also work on their fire-building and outdoor cooking
skills by preparing their meals in the unit using different cooking
methods. All meals and snacks are included in the program. And as
every cook knows, these skills also include cleaning up and doing
dishes the Girl Scout camp way.
S.C.A.T. stands for
Sleuthing Critters and Tracks! Bring

Have you heard about the relaunch of the Mariner Scout program?
Mariner Scouts are Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors that are
interested in focusing their Girl Scout Leadership experience on
activities in, on, or near the water! Girls will hone their canoeing
skills and learn how to re-enter the canoe from the water. This is an
introductory program that will provide the girls with some hands-on
experience of what a Mariner Girl Scout can do.
More mariner events are coming soon.
