Sunday, June 1, 2014 - 5:52 pm

According to a new study by the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI), "More Than S’mores (2014)," girls benefit immensely from time spent outdoors. Girls who regularly spend time outdoors eclipse their peers who spend less time outdoors in environmental stewardship, more readily seek challenges, and are better problem solvers – all important traits in twenty-first century leadership.

Girl Scouts are twice as likely as non-Girl Scouts to say they take action to protect the environment (51 percent versus 23 percent) and that they’ve had a personal experience in nature that has made them appreciate it more (49 percent versus 29 percent), according to the report.
