GS Love State Parks Weekend

Girl Scouts Love State Parks
July 13-14, 2019

Girl Scouts San Diego and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) are excited to announce their first-ever Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend for girls, their friends, and family to experience the great outdoors, an integral part of the organization’s all-girl leadership program. Join Girl Scouts San Diego and thousands of girls in hundreds of state parks across the United States to find adventure, explore nature, and learn what Girl Scouts is all about.

Border Field State Park
Option 1: Border Field State Park

Update: This event is full. In collaboration with the National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD), many San Diego Girl Scouts will earn their Girl Scouts Love State Parks patch at Border Field State Park on Saturday, July 13. Girls will Discover, Connect, and Take Action at this important wildlife habitat, comprised of sand dunes and salt marshes.

Option 2: Visit Another State Park

Since the Border Field State Park event is full, you can get out into California State Parks on your own during Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend, July 13-14. Check out a park close to home or one you have never been to before.

Note: Summer is the high-season for California State Parks. Many parks fill to capacity early in the day. Park entrance, permits, and/or spots in public programs are issued at the discretion of each California State Park. Groups of fewer than 25 people total with no water activities would be permitted to visit the beaches/parks without a permit. Please plan your self-guided adventure accordingly.

  2. Observe the nature and wildlife specific to our local ecosystems.
