NEW YORK: Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) announced its first-ever Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend July 13-14 for girls to experience the great outdoors, an integral part of the organization’s all-girl leadership program.

Join thousands of girls in hundreds of state parks across the United States to find adventure, explore nature, and learn what Girl Scouts is all about.

In collaboration with the National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD), Girl Scouts will host a variety of events at state parks for girls to explore what the parks have to offer and to participate in select activities, such as working on a badge or Take Action project, camping overnight, and much more. Events and activities will vary locally, so those interested should contact their local Girl Scout council for more information.
