We have years of experience hosting our own events like annual Girl Scout weekends, training and certification courses, and equestrian rides.

Girl Scout Weekends

While the Outdoor Learning Center isn’t hosting specific Girl Scout Weekends during the fall of 2024, every troop in the GSCNC is welcome to join us for the following weekends: September 14-15, September 21-22, October 5-6, October 12-13, and November 2-3. Come and enjoy the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, the comradery of other visiting troops, and lodging and meals provided! Enjoy custom programming, such as an age-appropriate equestrian experience, building confidence at the climbing tower, zipline, or giant swing, meeting our friendly farm animals, and learning wilderness skills!

If these weekends don’t work with your troop’s schedule, please reach out to our Customer Service Team to find a weekend fits your schedule (540-896-7600)! We hope to see you this fall!
