Girl Scouts Love State Parks
September 9 and 10, 2023
Every year, Girl Scouts explore the natural wonders found across our country and celebrate our shared love for the outdoors during Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend.
South Carolina State Parks have been involved in Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend since its inaugural year of 2019. Several state parks have offered programming including service projects, historical programming, wilderness skills, hikes and so much more. Stay tuned for more information about Girl Scouts Love State Parks 2023!
While you are visiting a South Carolina State Park, consider doing some of these activities this summer:
- Become a Junior Ranger and participate in fun activities and programs that help you learn more about the parks and our mission.
- Ahead of your park visit, pledge to Pick up America. #PickUpAmerica
- Earn your "Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors Challenge" patch at South Carolina's state parks!
When you visit a state park throughout the year, please be sure to:
- Wear your Girl Scout vest or sash so that you will be recognized as a Girl Scout during your visit.
- Take photos of your visit and share them on social media, to show how engaged Girl Scouts are at the parks! Share using hashtag #SCStateParks and #GSLoveStateParks on all social media channels, or make sure to tag us on Facebook (@SC.State.Parks), Twitter (@SC_State_Parks), and Instagram (@SCStateParks).
- Learn the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace, and teach others how to protect and preserve South Carolina's state parks.
