About Camp

We cannot wait to see you around the campfire again! Girls need connection more than ever, and camp is the perfect place for it - so we are making changes to keep girls safe.

     Do you want to go hiking, but you aren't sure how to start? Below is the Camper Naturalist Hiking patch which has activities you can do to learn how to go hiking safely. 

Camper Naturalist Hiking Patch

   Do you love the outdoors and want to learn more about nature and learn some skills that are used in the out-of-doors? A naturalist has lots of different skills. They know how to take care of themselves in the outdoors and they know a little about zoology, biology, ecology, and botany. In this first of the Naturalist series, we’ll explore hiking which covers taking care of yourself in the outdoors. There are activities, games, and information to help you Discover more about the outdoors, Connect with the outdoors, and Take Action to help improve the outdoors or to help others learn about the outdoors. 

     Here is the link to the booklet. It was made to be printed front and back, but just follow the page numbers at the bottom if you print it single sided. When you are finished you can purchase the Camper Naturalist Hiking Patch for $3 if you want to add it to your collection. Contact mburkart@gswrc.org for more information.
