Travel Leadership Series
Exploring new places is one of the most exciting experiences Girl Scouts offer. To ensure high-quality and safe trips, we require training for our travel volunteers.
Want to leave the meeting space and/or stay overnight in an enclosed structure with running water, heat, toilets, lights, kitchen facilities and cell phone coverage?
This course is required and includes information on going beyond the meeting place, longer field trips, and overnight experiences with emphasis on using camp lodges. It teaches adults to lead girls on new adventures. Go step-by-step through the thinking and planning involved in short field trips, daytime outdoor activities and indoor overnights.
