We live in a world of screens—smartphone! laptop! TV! tablet!—and sometimes you just want to get away from it all. We get it. That’s why you can focus your USAGSO experience on getting outdoors. You’ll develop skills like building a campfire, pitching a tent, and canoeing. Hey, how about adding some horseback riding, rock climbing, and archery to the mix? Round things out with a ropes course, some ziplining, and maybe a week-long back-country trek, and you’ll find out how much fun it can be to unplug and explore the world around you.
Get Back Outdoors Camp Grant
Is your community ready to Get Back Outside and camp again? After
months of lockdowns and postponed activities, USAGSO is excited to
help you jump start the fun of overnight and day camps with a grant of
up to $1,000!
Communities have until Sept 30, 2022 (yes, next year!) to run their event and applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis until the funds are gone. Interested? Submit your application!
Communities can choose their own theme for camp, but we suggest using the camps to introduce and refresh outdoor skills after the long months of lockdown.
We also encourage communities to use the camp as a recruitment event to attract prospective girl and adult members. Communities who participate, will receive an extra $250 to help cover costs and/or membership fees for these new members. Prospective girls can attend all or a select part of the camp to experience what Girl Scouts is about. Prospective adults can try planning and leading a small activity to feel how rewarding it is to be a leader!
