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.
