Since 1912, girls have explored and strengthened their outdoor skills and commitment to environmental stewardship through Girl Scouting. Guided by supportive adults and peers, Girl Scouts discover the wonders of nature, experience the thrill of adventure, and challenge themselves and one another to reach new heights. These experiences hone their outdoor and leadership skills, inspire them to take action to protect the environment, and reinforce friendships to last a lifetime!
Whether you’re a camping pro or just starting out, you can help girls of all ages have a positive experience in the great outdoors and develop a passion for nature.
Use the Outdoor Progression chart to help ignite a lifelong love of the outdoors in your girls. This is at the core of Girl Scouting—and every Girl Scout deserves the opportunity to challenge herself as she explores her world.
For more than a century, camping has been a rich tradition and cornerstone of the Girl Scout experience, and today San Jacinto Council remains committed to getting every girl outdoors. In 2017, we launched the Ten-Year Property Strategy Task Force (TYPS) to evaluate our outdoor resources and develop strategies that build on our strengths.
This effort is part of our organization’s on-going work to continue to thrive and uphold our role as the premier leadership development organization for girls. The findings from TYPS will guide the Council’s investment strategy over the next 10+ years for our camps and other facilities.
Our aim is to provide all of our members access to quality outdoor experiences at our camps, and valuable resources at our service centers. Can you imagine the day when we provide 100,000 outdoor experiences to our girls every year? That’s double the experiences girls had in 2017! There’s still plenty of work to be done but we are excited to share with you what has taken place, what we know, some short-term successes and exciting developments that are in store for our Council.
