Three things for Thursday

By Lisa Kaminski; Manager, Community Development

SM_GirlsCanBeAnythingGirl Scouts has a long history of providing girls with opportunities to have experiences in the outdoors. Recently Girl Scouts conducted some research on the impact of outdoor experiences on girls in Girl Scouts. Here are three of the findings from that research:

Girls really enjoy outdoor experiences in Girl Scouts – 62% of girls reported enjoying outdoor experiences. The ones they most liked included; camping, playing outside, field trips, and swimming

Girl Scouts helps girls connect with and care for the environment – Girl Scouts report a much higher environmental stewardship than girls not involved in our organization.

Camping experiences build leadership – More than half of all girls asked reported increasing a skill because of their camping experience.

For more information on the research and all of the findings, visit the Girl Scouts website here.
