6/8 - 6/12: Best Campout Ever
Virtual Campouts? Yes, please! During this week we will be like Bigfoot while we learn about Leave No Trace, enjoy some outdoor cooking and take part in camp skill challenges. Finally cap off your week with a family campout. Whether it occurs in your backyard or in your living room, it’s sure to be a family night to remember. You can purchase your Program Kit with items necessary for the great outdoors and the patch from our GSofSI Local Online Shop. Follow along with each activity Monday - Friday in the Facebook Event!

Tuesday: How to Be Like Bigfoot - Who lives in the woods and never leaves a trace, but always has a smile on his face? That’s right, Bigfoot! This is why he is the mascot for Leave No Trace. As Girl Scouts we believe in ‘leaving a place better than you find it’. When we go outside we try to practice eco-friendly ethics. Which means we try to minimize our impact on the planet.
