  • Utah Girl Scout Camps From Times Past


    Shaggy Dog Rag (a lively dance), Red Cliff Specials and campfire skits were all part of Camp Red Cliff in the 1950s when I got hooked on camping. I loved the after dinner dancing, the skits at campfires and the wonderful songs sung after every meal. I loved the way the camp smelled early in the morning when the sun glinted on the dew covered landscape.

    Some of those things have not changed over the years but progress happens. I have watched the camping program modify to meet the needs of girls in the age of technology. Plus, girls today do not want to use a “biffy”. Utah Girl Scout Camps are alive and well today because of the fine programming directed by our professional staff...

    Girl Scouts can do anything, set your goals, overcome obstacles, rework your plan, and achieve your dreams!  That is the power of Girl Scouts and our very own Fran Bush from the Heritage Committee has been out in the community learning about the adventures of a Girl Scout with a BIG dream from 1981!

    So begins our story of Tammy, a Utah Girl Scout, who learned that climbing the fireplace at Camp Cloud Rim can inspires dreams. Many years ago at theage of sixteen, Tammy dreamed of climbing Mt.

  • Be a Girl Scout Ranger


    Girl Scouts is excited to announce a partnership with the National Park Service to launch the “Girl Scout Ranger Program,” a joint venture connecting girls with National Park Service sites throughout the United States, including monuments, seashores, and urban sites.

    Through the program, girls can participate in a variety of organized educational or outdoor service projects. Additionally, Girl Scouts may design their own project that aligns with their Girl Scout Journey experience, various badge activities, or a Take Action (“highest award”) project. Girls who successfully complete projects will be awarded certificates from the National Park Service and Girl Scout patches.

    “Providing girls with access to the outdoors is one of the cornerstones of the Girl Scout mission,” said Anna Maria Chávez, CEO of GSUSA. “Through terrific partnerships and programs like the Girl Scout Ranger Program, we offer girls a chance to engage in outdoor activities that encourage a healthy, active lifestyle and a respect for the environment. We are proud to be teaming up with the National Park Service to help more Girl Scouts in more places experience everything the outdoors has to offer.”

    Girls and troops who wish to participate in the Girl Scout Ranger Program can visit the National Park Service website to locate a park (“Find Your Park”) near their home.
