What is the Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors Challenge (GSLOC)?
The GSLOC is a fun way to get outdoors while safely social distancing, explore and complete safe activities to earn a national patch. Based on your program level, complete the required number of activities (Daisy=20, Brownie=25, Junior=30, Cadette=35, Senior and Ambassador=40).
Who can participate in the GSLOC?
Girl Scouts of all ages, their friends and family—basically everyone! This patch is available to members and non-members who love the outdoors and are up for the challenge!
How can I complete activities in this challenge that require me to go outdoors if I am staying at home?
Safety is our priority at Girl Scouts. If you are unable to complete an activity due to social distancing and/or a stay at home order you can find an alternative. Take a virtual tour of a park online, gaze out of a window or look through family photos of outdoor adventures. Drawing a picture works too!
What if I can’t complete all activities required for my grade level?
Take your time! The outdoors challenge lasts from May through September; you have time to work on completing the challenge. Remember due to safety precautions, it is totally acceptable to modify the activity as you need to in order to stay at home and safe.
Do I have to submit a completed activity sheet to show that I have earned the patch?
No, completing this challenge and earning the patch is on your honor.
