Spring 2022 Troop & Family Self-Led Outdoor Activities

The weather is getting better and we know it is not always easy to attend programs with your troop or to work around your busy schedules, so we have put a few self-led activities together to carry you into spring.

Outdoor Badges: Earn them with your troop or solo!

Trail Adventure Badge Series: These badges encourage girls to safely explore various types of trails and to continue to challenge themselves. These are great for girls that are brand new to hiking or even the most advanced hiker. We highly suggest keeping track of your adventures to use towards the GS Love Hiking mileage badges listed below as well.

Eco Badge Series: These badges will teach girls how to “Leave No Trace” (low to no impact on the land) during their outdoor adventures. With the recent overuse of public lands, leaving no trace is more important than ever.

See the newest badges using the Badge Explorer!

2022 WNY Hiking Challenge

WNY Hiking Challenge: We’re continuing to partner with Outside Chronicles to offer the extraordinary WNY Hiking Challenge to Girl Scout families at a discounted rate of $15! The 2022 patch design and challenge are coming soon! Click here to visit the page. Be sure to bookmark it. The challenge will run from May 1 to Nov. 19, 2022.

WNY Hiking Challenge Rider Patch: Once you’ve completed the WNY Hiking Challenge, use these questions to reflect on your experience and order your Rider Patch.

GS Love Hiking: Planning on doing some hiking this year? Keep track of your mileage on this form and then order your patches. There are 5, 10, 50 and 100 mileage patches. Use them individually or collectively to add up the miles you have hiked. Keep on hiking and showing others how your work has paid off. Other mileages may be available upon request.

Girl Scout Tree Promise

Join our mission to protect the planet from the effects of climate change. In partnership with the Elliott Wildlife Values Project and American Forests, Girl Scouts are setting out to plant five million trees in five years, and to protect and honor new and existing trees. Not only is this great for wildlife, it will also help ease the effects of climate change. Girl Scouts have planted thousands of trees in all 50 states and globally. Let’s keep going! Track your trees here!
