Girls need the Outdoors and the Outdoors needs Girls.


Famous Adventures understands the incredible power and positive impact that spending time outdoors has on children’s self confidence, creativity, and mental and physical well being. Research constantly proves these benefits are lifelong and compounding. However, teenage girls are statistically at a disadvantage: the Outdoor Industry Association’s 2019 Outdoor Participation Report found that while almost 60 percent of girls aged 6–12 regularly take part in outdoor activities, this number drops nearly five percent for teenage girls. 

Our Girls Outdoor Leadership Program is designed to support young women* in countering this statistic one outdoor adventure at a time. Bringing together girls from around the Lowcountry that share a common love for the outdoors, we will empower our participants to connect with each other, their environment, and themselves. Rooted in leadership and focused on connecting to the natural environment, our program is both an exploration of the Lowcountry and an opportunity for self empowerment.

*Famous Adventures welcomes all young people who identify as female.

The Specs:

  • Schedule: 5-week program on Saturday mornings 8:30-12:30. Program is designed to be holistic and scaffolded and participants will get the most out of attending all adventures.
