Outdoor Adventures is required for at least one registered adult volunteer of a troop before bringing girls on an overnight in tents or before cooking over a fire. Troop leaders can also recruit another adult/parent to become the troop’s Outdoor Adventures Certified Adult. Participants will learn how to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in preparing for these types of outdoor adventures.
During this session you will learn about building fires, outdoor cooking, staying safe, and all things "Girl Scout Program in the Outdoors." By the end of the session you will have an excellent start on planning and preparing your very first outdoor adventure with your troop.
Please dress comfortably and for the weather as much of the time will be spent outdoors, rain or shine. Lunch is provided and please contact the director of camp and program if you have any dietary/activity restrictions or have any questions.
The day was full of great information but most of all, I think that Abby made the day exciting and fun. She has a great way of making everyone feel comfortable, regardless of skill level. I really enjoyed myself and by the time 3 o'clock rolled around, I was not ready to go home. I could have stayed a couple of days :)
Abby motivated me and made me excited to be a part of such a great organization.

Complete Outdoor Adventures at Troop Camp!
How cool is that? Take your girls to Troop Camp and by participating in activities during the two-night stay, advisors can fulfill the Outdoor Adventures Training requirements. But don't worry, it won't feel like work at all.
There will be tons of fun to go around at Camp Evelyn's Troop Camp. All you need to bring is your troop, your gear, and your enthusiasm for trying something new. You and your troop will experience the great outdoors with all of the amenities of camp counselors leading activities, food service providing meals and so much more. Wouldn't this be a great way to start camping with your troop?
Are you looking to take your troop tent camping or want to make yummy s'mores over a camp fire but can't make it to the Outdoor Adventures session? Then completing the course online is just the thing you need. By completing Part I and Part II of the online learning course you will have completed your Outdoor Adventures requirements. You will need to refer to the online resources Volunteer Essentials and Safety Activity Checkpoints in the Volunteer Toolkit to complete the questions.
It is set up in two parts so that if you need to take a break while working on it, you can. Just come back when you're ready to work on Part II. After completion of both parts, you will receive a reply after your answers have been reviewed. Both parts need to be submitted in order to have successfully completed the course. If you have any questions please contact the director of camp and program for assistance.
