Quick Guide - Outdoor Adventure Planning
The opportunity for girls to plan their activities in partnership with adults is one of the most vital aspects of the Girl Scout Program. The path to planning for successful outdoor adventures, whether it is a simple day trip or more involved camping trips, relies on the participation of both girls and adults – a Girl/Adult Partnership.  Progressive learning is a key factor to consider when choosing and preparing for outdoor experiences. Girl Scouts of Connecticut has designed several resources to support a planning process where Girl/Adult Partnerships thrive and where everyone is able to grow, and self-esteem flourishes.
