Expeditions are traveling summer experiences, hosted by GSHCC staff.
Exclusively for older girls, these programs combine adventure, service
and leadership–resulting in lifelong memories. “Girl-led” rings true
in these programs as girls design and implement aspects of the
experience along the way. Our expeditions combine exciting adventure
opportunities, traditional camping elements and community service.
Girls have gone to Yosemite to enjoy the natural beauty, and assisted
park rangers with making sure it stays beautiful for others to enjoy.
At Lassen Volcanic National Park, girls have explored the peaks,
active hydrothermal areas and worked with researchers to take water
samples. Imagination, innovation and environmental impact come
together at GSHCC Expeditions.
Each expedition is uniquely designed to expose girls to new cities,
parks and communities. With so much to explore, these programs don’t
visit GSHCC properties.
We have the following opportunities for the summer of 2018. Please
