Every year, Girl Scouts explore the natural wonders found across the
country during the Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend. Girl Scouts
celebrate our shared love for the outdoors at local state parks, along
with troops, friends, and family.
The official 2021 Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend will take
place September 10-12!
Girl Scouts across NYC will partner with 5 State Parks to celebrate
our shared love for the outdoors along with troops, friends, and
family through a Virtual Camp-In Event, Community Service Project, and
borough-specific field days.
State Park Ranger Partner events will take place at the following locations:
The Bronx: Roberto Clemente State Park
Brooklyn: Shirley Chisholm State Park
Manhattan: Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park
Queens: Gantry Plaza State Park
Staten Island: Clay Pit Ponds State Park Preserve
