Girls can earn badges or patches for some activities. Check to see what activities have an application form to fill out for your badge or patch.
Letterboxing and geocaching are treasure-hunt-styled outdoor activities that use either clues or GPS coordinates to find a hidden treasure. Letterboxing and Geocaching help Girl Scouts develop skills such as map reading, orienteering and puzzle solving. With Letterboxes and Geocaches soon at each of our three camps, GSNEO encourages all troops visiting camp to participate!
For lesson plans, procedures, and safety rules regarding Letterboxing and Geocaching, please review our “Letterboxing and Geocaching on GSNEO Camp Property” Activity & Lesson Packets.
