Experience exciting outdoor adventures that will challenge you and
your group to a new level.
It is important to give our girls opportunities to develop or
improve their outdoor skills in different areas. Research has shown
that integrating Environmental Education and outdoor activities into
children’s daily lives received lower ratings for behavioral conduct
disorders, anxiety, depression, and obesity than peers with less
access to nature. Only through hands on outdoor activities can we
truly advance our efforts to have the nation’s youth develop a
lifetime of emotional awareness of the natural environment.
Girl Scouts of Central Illinois offers a variety of outdoor
adventures including summer camp (day, community & resident camp),
equestrian (horseback riding) challenge course & climbing wall,
boating and archery.
If you are taking your girls camping, Basic Outdoor Training
is required. Basic Outdoor Training where you will learn about site
information, resources, camp fire building techniques, progression of
camping, menu planning, outdoor cookies, recipes, and camp activities.

camping. Check the events
