Daisy Keira and Junior Cecilia had the best time checking activities off their Winter Get Outdoors Challenge checklist during a recent snowy day. These Girl Scouts helped shovel snow not only on their own driveway, but also neighbors’ sidewalks. They also made snow angels and had a snowball fight. Their favorite activity was sledding together. They can’t wait to complete some more of the fun activities on the checklist!

Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Get Outdoors Challenge patch is a checklist challenge full of fun outdoor activities for the fall/winter and spring/summer seasons. Complete the required number of activities for your Girl Scout level to earn each side of the patch. Learn more.

How are you spending your fall?

Sage from Pagosa Springs is taking on the Girl Scouts Get Outdoors Challenge. Sage has visited a Colorado state park, helped harvest corn from the garden, learned about and explored the fall leaf colors, and visited a national wildlife refuge. Sage said, “it’s a really fun way to stay connected to Girl Scouts and get outdoors”.
