At the Adventure Zone on Level 3 of our Balboa Campus, girls test
their courage and build confidence in a safe, supportive environment.
They'll challenge themselves with team-focused games, complete problem
solving initiatives and attempt low elements, all under the leadership
of certified staff. Current 4th graders (Girl Scout Juniors) and older
can tackle the 40-foot climbing tower.
Answers to frequently asked questions:
What is the Adventure Zone?
The Adventure Zone course is a
combination of logs, platforms, ropes, games, and activities. Each
group’s session at the course is designed with progression in mind:
Certified facilitators start with ground games and initiatives before
graduating to activities and elements which involve some physical or
emotional risk. When sharing individual successes and setbacks with a
supportive team, participants gain self-esteem and practice working
successfully in a group.
Current 2nd graders (Brownies) and
older can participate in all ground and low-element activities.
Current 4th graders (Juniors) and older
can participate in all activities, including the climbing tower.
If you have a mixed-age group that
includes at least one Brownie, the entire group will participate at
the Brownie level in order to maintain team spirit. Group activities
will be tailored to include the youngest participants, and the group
will not go on the climbing tower.
