G.O.’s mission is to provide opportunities for young girls to develop healthy and rewarding outdoor hobbies that will last a lifetime. Through programs that emphasize unplugging and having fun in nature with peers and women role models, G.O. is committed to helping young girls get outside — to learn about their environment and engage responsibly in activities that encourage independence and promote their physical, emotional and social well-being.
While the mission of Girls Outside is to enjoy nature, we also hope these outings foster independence and so we encourage parents to let their girls do the hike on their own as a part of the group. Hikes are usually no more than three miles and take place in and around Knoxville or Oak Ridge. Girls Outside promises to have four adult women hiking guides for each hike. The maximum number of girls we can take per hike is 12, and usually a minimum of six.
