Adventure Camper

When you plan an adventure, like kayaking, mountain biking, or rock climbing, you can combine it with overnight camping to make the most of your outdoor experience. Adventure camping requires minimal equipment and gear because you’ll be active during the day and possibly moving campsites. Some adventure campers bring nothing but a sleeping bag, lightweight stove, some food, and a backpack. Whatever spells adventure for you, start by listing the things you want to do – then make your camping trip happen!

  1. Plan your adventure camping trip.
  2. Gather your camping gear.
  3. Plan and prepare your trip meals.
  4. Use a camping skill on your trip.
  5. Go adventure camping.

When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll have planned and gone on a camping trip with a group of Girl Scouts or family members that includes adventure activities.
