Girl Scouts provides age-appropriate, progressive experiences with four program focus areas: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Entrepreneurship, Life Skills, and Outdoor Experiences. All Girl Scout experiences incorporate three key indicators of leadership as defined by the GSLE:

  • Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.  
  • Connect: Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.  
  • Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place.   

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Your gift will help girls change the world!

Project Description

Help Columbus area girls attend camp this summer! Girl Scout camp programs transform a girl’s understanding of and appreciation for nature, while helping her build a unique set of skills and boosting her confidence in ways few activities can match. Spirit of Nebraska has six camps and one outdoor education facility to get girls outdoors throughout the state. The Council recently debuted Soaring Hawk Zip Tour at Camp Crossed Arrows, located in Nickerson, NE. Girls can attend camp at Camp Crossed Arrows and experience wonderful views above the natural prairie meadows and steep canyons while facing challenges. 

Girl Scouts empowers girl to develop their goals and build the skills necessary to make their world a better place. Funds from the Columbus Big Give will go toward Girl Scout programming in the Columbus area.
