Girls Outdoor Adventure & Leadership

What's our GOAL?

Girls need the Outdoors and the Outdoors needs Girls.


The Girls' Outdoor Adventure & Leadership program is designed to support young women* gaining confidence in the outdoors, one adventure at a time. Bringing together girls from around the Lowcountry that share a common love for being outside, we empower our participants to connect with each other, the environment, and themselves. Rooted in leadership and focused on connecting to the natural environment, our program is both a fun-filled exploration of the Lowcountry and an opportunity for self empowerment.

*Famous Adventures welcomes all young people who identify as female

November 12: Navigating Identity @ Laurel Hill Map & Compass Park

Grades 4-8 

Set out with us on Laurel Hill County Park’s shaded trails as our participants build their personal “toolkit” for navigating their own identity. We will introduce the sport of orienteering, with participants working together using a compass and map to find their way on their personal treasure hunt in the park! Throughout our journey, participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their own values, communication styles, and decision making skills.
