The Outdoor Adventure Club event is kicking off the 2021 summer season with a mountain hiking adventure in June! Choose between Echo Lake and Chicago Lake at the base of Mt. Evans or Seven Bridges in North Cheyenne Cañon near Colorado Springs. Along the way, we’ll work on parts of the Trail Adventure badge and Outdoor Skills patch, play fun trail games, and take some time to cool off by the water! The cost is $40/per Girl Scout. You can also use Cookie Credits for this event or apply for an opportunity grant.
