Research Affirms Overwhelming Benefits of Outdoor Exposure

RS6954_IMG_7334According to a new study by the Girl Scout Research Institute, More Than S’mores, girls benefit immensely from time spent outdoors. Girls who regularly spend time outdoors eclipse their peers in seeking challenges, environmental stewardship, and solving problems—all important traits in twenty-first century leadership.

Camp season is just beginning, and it’s not too late to register! Convenient day camp programs at Camp Winnecomac in Kaukauna, WI are perfect for girls in grades K–7 looking for some time outdoors but aren’t quite sure about a week away from home. Resident camp is also offered at Camp Birch Trails in Irma, WI and Camp Nesbit in Sidnaw, MI. Troop camping is available at all of our camp properties, and we will be offering Weekend in the Woods—a structured troop camping program—at both Camp Sacajawea in Wisconsin Rapids and Camp Nawakwa in Cornell, WI.
