Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) announced their first-ever Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend July 13–14 for girls and their families and friends to experience the great outdoors, an integral part of the organization’s all-girl leadership program. Join Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains and thousands of girls in hundreds of state parks across the United States to find adventure, explore nature, and learn what Girl Scouts is all about.
The legacy of Girl Scouts and the outdoors is profound. Studies show that 71 percent of girl members ages 8–14 tried their first outdoor activity through the organization and half would not have had access to outdoor activities and programming if not for Girl Scouts. GSUSA’s cutting-edge environmental conservation; camping; and outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programming is rooted in a passion for adventure and healthy risk-taking combined with taking action to protect the environment for present and future generations. Girl Scouts wants to get even more girls outside through Girl Scouts Love State Parks.
In collaboration with the National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD), Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains will offer programming at the following state parks located throughout our council service area:
- Abilene State Park
- Copper Breaks State Park
- Fort Richardson State Park
- Lake Arrowhead State Park
- Lake Whitney State Park
Participants can also purchase an exclusive Girl Scouts Love State Parks patch and other related merchandise from the Girl Scout Shop online.
“GSUSA has always been a leader in getting girls outdoors, and we are excited to open our state parks specifically to the organization this July,” said Lewis Ledford, NASPD CEO. “Girls can flex their leadership and risk-taking skills while exploring the parks, learning something new, and, most of all, having fun.”
