An inclusive – exclusive group for girls 11 – 17!
Adventurers is an action-oriented group of older Girl Scouts who are seeking exciting, stimulating activities to challenge their capabilities, broaden their horizons, and increase their self-confidence. It is for girls age 11-17 and in grades 6-12. Members often participate in rock climbing, caving, canoeing, hiking and other similar high-adventure activities. Adventurers may be active in regular Girl Scout troops, but individually registered girls can also participate in this Program Pathway. As a group, the girls brainstorm, research and vote on several high adventure trips each year. Trips and activities take place on weekends, school breaks and summer months, and may include an overnight camp-out. As Adventurers’ events are planned, they will be posted here for information and registration.
Adult coordinators are needed! Adult volunteers serve as the mentors to these girls as well as coordinate Adventurers’ events. Training is provided and may include team building, get-acquainted activities, event training, group trip training, water program activities and fun stuff like geocaching! Leave-No-Trace and hiker training are also offered as needed for the activities that the girls plan.

High-Adventure Trips! Passport to Fun and Challenge
With proper assistance and a can-do attitude, groups are bidding farewell to their comfort zones and embarking on amazing challenges. Does the thought of dangling from a high-ropes harness make you reach for smelling salts? Have you witnessed teens cry at the thought of leaving behind their make-up as they set out on a primitive camping trip? Have you seen adults break into cold sweats as they hand over the troop’s savings to 12-year-old accountants?
