Get Outdoors Challenge


Have an amazing summer of outdoor adventures by joining your sister Girl Scouts in GSWPA's first-ever Get Outdoors Challenge! This is a chance for you to learn new skills, build connections with friends and family, and have fun, all while exploring outdoor spaces that are down the street or across the country. You could also receive a one-of-a-kind patch designed by Grace Glowczewski, a Cadette from Troop 55286, and Emily Hegedus, a Junior from Troop 20655!

Here's how it works: 

From March 11 through September 30, complete as many activities as possible on the Get Outdoors Activity checklist.
To earn a patch, a girl must complete at least 10 activities from her grade level (two can be from a younger grade level) and 30 activities from the all ages list.


When you've checked off the required amount of activities, come back to this web page ( to claim your patch!
Just fill out this form to tell us which activities you've completed. Did you complete the challenge together as a troop? Use this form
