For over a century, Girl Scouts of the USA has led the way for girls in the outdoors.
Today we are proud to launch an initiative where together, we will inspire, prepare and mobilize the next generation of
This outdoor adventure collaboration will provide girls, regardless of socioeconomic status, with outdoor experiences
that will enhance their leadership skills and confidence and encourage them to seek out new challenges. The core of this
initiative is support for GSUSA to create twelve new Outdoor High-Adventure badges, with a program that includes activities
ranging from mountaineering and climbing, to backpacking, hiking and trail running. This program will roll out over the next
two years and will help girls of all ages realize their leadership potential while simultaneously increasing the visibility of
female role models for girls nationwide.
While the Outdoor Adventure Badge Program is the cornerstone of the initiative, we will also be developing unique
experiences that support our shared goal to enable the next generation of female explorers. Stay tuned for updates
on our work with the Girl Scouts!
