Girl Scouts has a long history of connecting girls with the great outdoors in memorable and enriching, girl-led ways. On OCTOBER 18-20, 2019, 6 P.M. FRI. TO 10 A.M. SUN., girls and their families will gather for the 2019 Outdoor Celebration to honor over 100 years of outdoor adventure in Girl Scouts.

The event will take place at Camp Timbercrest: 11169 Moore Rd., Randolph, NY 14772. One hundred and fifty girls and their families will enjoy a weekend-long fall fiesta at beautiful Camp Timbercrest where there will be a variety of programs and activities for everyone to enjoy! Guest experts will lead exciting _forest games, tomahawk-throwing, firebending, wildcrafts, and more_!

Girl Scout Research Institute studies show that when Girl Scouts get outside, they: discover that they can better solve problems and overcome challenges; develop leadership skills, build social bonds, and are happier overall; and become team players and care more about protecting our environment. When girls spend quality time outdoors and increase their exposure to nature, they thrive physically, emotionally, and intellectually.

Girl Scouts is the place where girls can explore, discover, and just be themselves! From adventuring outdoors or experimenting with science to saving a park or developing new skills, Girl Scouting prepares girls for a lifetime of leadership. Girl Scouts always have unforgettable, inspiring stories to tell about how they make a difference in the world.

Registration is open [1]. Girls must attend with an adult and register for Girl Scouts or be a registered Girl Scout to attend the event. In addition to this celebration, girls in grades k-12th can participate in exciting outdoor programs year-round which can be viewed in the Outdoor program guide.
