Recreational tree climbing is an engaging and challenging adventure for Girl Scouts...especially because you can use the experience to earn a badge!
Wether you are looking to have a memorable outdoor gathering with the troop or interested in pursuing an associated badge, our climb events are an exciting experience they won't soon forget!
Climbing trees develops critical thinking skills and builds self-confidence. Participants also develop leadership and social skills as they may work together and assist each other when getting on branches and flipping updside down.
Our climbing experiences are a great way to work towards badges related to trees and outdoor adventures, such as:
Juniors: Snow or Climbing Adventure
Ambassadors: Ultimate Recreation Challenge
INDIVIDUALS & SMALLER TROOPS
Girl Scout Open Climbs are a price-effective option for individuals and smaller troops that do not have enough girls to warrant the base price for a private climb. Only offered in Waukesha County at this time.
PRIVATE TROOP CLIMB
Private group climbs allow the troop to enjoy the tree all to themselves! Private climbs are available in Waukesha County, the Fox Valley (Kaukauna), and Dane County (Verona).
