Get Outdoors Challenge


The first-ever GSWPA Get Outdoors Challenge this summer was a big hit, with more than 1,200 girls earning the girl-designed patch.

Now, there’s a winter edition of this challenge to inspire you to get outdoors all season long!


From November 1 – March 31, complete as many activities as possible from the checklist, then submit your entry by April 15. There are 67 activities to choose from, including ice skating, sledding, feeding birds, and, of course, making snow angels!

Complete the required amount of activities for your grade level to earn your Get Outdoors Challenge patch or your winter leaf if you have already earned the main patch through the summer challenge. 

So grab the list and have a blast outdoors this winter!
