In celebration of National Great Outdoors Month, Girl Scouts is excited to host four weeks of exciting outdoor challenges in June. Follow along, have fun, then make sure to share your photos on Instagram using the hashtag #gsoutdoors for a chance to win an awesome prize from the North Face!
You know what makes almost any activity more fun? Taking it outside! Enjoying the great outdoors can be done in so many ways—there’s no right or wrong as long as you’re enjoying yourself and respecting your neighbors. The point is to get outside, breathe that fresh air, and have fun with friends and family. To participate in this week’s challenge, pick one of the activities below!
Throw a picnic.
Whether you pick up sandwiches at the local deli and take them to the park or ask friends to contribute their favorite dishes to a bigger cookout, your day is sure to be delicious.
Plan a field day.
Invite friends to come out for a day full of games and fun. Team up for a soccer match or softball game, see who can score the most points on the basketball court, or find out who can jump-rope the longest.
Sleep under the stars.
Make the great outdoors your actual home for a night or two on a fun camping trip! After all, there’s nothing quite like stargazing right before bed and getting up with the sunrise. Can’t make it to a national park this week? Pitch a tent in your own backyard instead.

To power the next generation of women who push boundaries and move mountains, The North Face has recently teamed up with Girl Scouts of the USA to inspire girls to challenge themselves, learn about the natural world, and continue the Girl Scout tradition of having life-changing outdoor experiences.
Through our multiyear collaboration, The North Face will support the development of 12 new Outdoor Adventure badges, with programming ranging from mountaineering and climbing to backpacking, hiking, and trail running. These 12 new Girl Scout badges, which will roll out over the next two years, will teach girls in virtually every U.S. zip code about the benefits of outdoor exploration.
