About the Explore Camp Patch Program
The Nation’s Capital “Explore Camp” Patch Program encourages Girl Scouts to explore the outdoors, take part in Girl Scout traditions, and discover the unique features of each of our eight camp properties. Girl Scouts completing this patch program will hone their eight basic outdoor skills, which help improve outdoor literacy and support positive, environmentally-friendly outdoor experiences.
Girl Scouts first earn the main patch, which serves as an introduction to the eight basic outdoor skills & Girl Scout traditions. After completing the main patch, Girl Scouts can earn the other eight patches in this program, each of which focuses on one of the eight Nation’s Capital camp properties.
