Get Outdoors Challenge
“It’s in our DNA. Our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, was a famous lover of nature. Today, Girl Scouts honors her legacy by promoting respect and love of the great outdoors far and wide.” – Girl Scouts USA
March 1 - July 31, 2023
Join us for the sixth annual Get Outdoors Challenge! Take part in this friendly competition in which individual girls, troops, and families complete outdoor activities to score points and earn patches!
Get Outdoors Challenge activities support girls’ work towards badges, Journeys, and Take Action Projects. Most importantly, they get us unplugged and outdoors, where the mind, body and spirit grow in ways no mobile app could rival! The challenge begins March 1 and ends on July 31. Make sure to check Safety Activity Checkpoints before starting activities.
Register your team online. Registration is $5 per participant. Every registered participant will receive a participant designed Get Outdoors Challenge patch. Earn a single rocker for 500+, 1,000+, 1,500+, or even higher based on the points submitted during the challenge! Earn an additional rocker for sisterhood by joining another Get Outdoors Challenge team for at least one activity.
Participate in our patch contest to have a hand in designing the Get Outdoors Challenge 2023 patch! Templates and submission instructions can be found here. Submissions due by April 1, 2023.
