Girl Scouts Love State Parks Day - Click title for full summary

Every year, Girl Scouts explore the natural wonders found across our country during the Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend. Girl Scouts nationwide, along with their troops, friends, and family, celebrate our shared love of the outdoors. September 10, 2022 marks the fourth annual Girl Scouts Love State Parks Day and Girl Scouts of Colonial Coast will gather at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in North Carolina for a full day (and night!) of fun.

Join us during daylight hours on the sand dunes to see kites fly overhead. During our two mid-morning sessions park rangers will be running interpretive programs specifically for Girl Scouts. Girls will also get a chance to complete activities towards earning their Jockey’s Ridge Jr. Ranger patch.Plus: Enjoy a soundside adventure on a big canoe! Spots are limited to 36 Girl Scouts (all grades). Complete this Google Form to Register:

If you are a Girl Scout Cadette, Senior or Ambassador we have an overnight camping option—with very limited available spaces—which is quite a special treat as Jockey’s Ridge does not usually allow overnight campers! Troops or groups are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Spots are limited to 25 Girl Scouts, not including their adult chaperones.* *Your troop or group is REQUIRED to register with 2 adults; only registered Girl Scouts may attend the overnight camp.
