Environmental Awareness

Through Girl Scouting, girls see the earth as their home. Whether they're learning about endangered wildlife, developing creative recycling projects, or working towards earned grade-level awards, girls focus on care, conservation, and responsibility. They ensure the safety of our planet for future generations.

Here are some of the many ways girls develop a keen environmental awareness:


Girl Scout Journeys

Girl Scout Journeys

Girl Scouts journeys are packed with the latest research and girl-relevant environmental thinking. In the It's Your Planet—Love It! Journey series, in particular, girls at each grade level learn about grade-appropriate environmental issues such as clean water and air, noise pollution, global change, soil contamination, and agricultural processes.

 


Girl Scout Camping

Girl Scout Camping

Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Girls enjoy camping with a group of Girl Scouts or attend day, resident, weekend, travel, or minimal-impact camp and outdoor adventures. Find your local council to enroll girls in camp programs.
