Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts Individual Troop, Council, or Camp Trips

Girl Scouts of all ages and abilities are invited to experience the thrill and adventure of climbing outdoors on real rock cliffs! Physical activity and personal goal setting help encourage a positive self-image among girls. We put this in the context of a fun-filled day, surrounded by breathtaking natural scenery. Participants gain confidence in themselves through the physical, mental, and/or emotional challenges of climbing. Trusting others, overcoming obstacles, and realizing their potential in a safe and supportive environment are additional benefits that will last longer than just the climbing day.

Earn requirements for GSUSA patches

We can focus the climbing day around the skills involved with earning outdoor adventure patches. Guides are happy to answer questions, demonstrate gear and techniques, or discuss any aspect of the sport.

  • High Adventure Patch (warm up and stretching activities, rock climbing techniques, and knowledge of safety equipment)
  • Adventure Sports Patch (4th-6th graders)
  • Rappelling Patch (cadettes and seniors)
