Let’s paint Colorado State Parks Girl Scout green! Girl Scouts of Colorado and Colorado Parks and Wildlife have teamed up for Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend July 13-14, 2019.
Share your love of the great outdoors and get to know your local state park with events in state parks across Colorado. Girls can attend as part of a troop or with their family – it’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of warm summer weather, spend time in nature, and get inspired for future outdoor adventures. Girl Scouts who participate will earn an exclusive patch.
Activities at each park will vary, but may include:
- Ranger programs
- Guided hikes
- Nature Center tours
- Opportunities to explore what makes each park unique- interpretive trails, waterfalls, animal programs, epic views, and more!
- Overnight camping (Girl Scout groups are responsible for reserving a site on their own)
- Girl Scout booth at the park visitor center where you can learn about Leave No Trace ethics to reduce your impact on nature, pick up a nature scavenger hunt card, and other fun activities!
GSCO will send a park specific flyer to all who have RSVP’ed by Monday, July 8.
