Camping Resources-Websites That Can Help You Get Organized

Camping Games and Songs for Girl Scouts

Being outdoors has so many layers of fun. Water activities, nature hikes, cooking outdoors and learning about the stars are just some of the things girls get to do when they go camping.

Other, non traditional games can also be played just for the fun of it! Glow sticks lend themselves to so many outdoor activities after the sun goes down, and girls just love them!
