Outdoor Skills Training - Whispering Winds - 6/3/23 - 6/4/23
Outdoor Skills is the third step in the outdoor training progression. This hands-on training prepares adults how to teach girls the intricacies of managing a campsite at an established site. You will learn to teach girls how to safely use outdoors tools, strike and use matches, light wood fires and propane stoves, split wood, safely use knives, set up camp, set up tents, prepare for sleeping in the outdoors, and complete all the meal preparation and clean-up so by the time your troop goes camping, the girls will be taking themselves. Expect to spend 6 months or more teaching and equipping a troop with all of these skills.
Training will take place from 9:00am on Saturday to approximately 12:00pm on Sunday at Whispering Winds, which is in Kings Valley, Oregon.
Please note that this two-day training conflicts with the other trainings happening at Whispering Winds during this Outdoor Training Palooza weekend. Volunteers taking this training will not be able to attend other events scheduled over the weekend.
One week prior to the training date, you will receive an email with directions to the training location and a packing list, which includes your own tent and sleeping gear.
Though not required to take this training, Girl Scouts Inside & Out Training, Part 2 and/or Indoor Overnights training is an additional prerequisite before any overnight activity, including camping.
