GS301a & GS301b Outdoor Education
This is a new pilot course. We have combined the GS301a Planning Session and the GS301b Outdoor Education Overnight into one GSVSC Outdoor Education weekend course. Participants must stay and participate in the entire course to receive their Outdoor Education certification. This course requires a two-night stay (Friday-Sunday).
Using Girl Scout methods, this GSVSC Outdoor Education course will teach volunteers how to progress their troop’s or group’s activities into the outdoors, develop skills to be used and taught to girls, and ensure a positive, fun, and safe outdoor experience. The GSVSC Outdoor Education course is required before troops or groups cook outdoors, camp out, and adventure out which includes: packing gear, platform/tent camping, camp fires, menu planning and cooking outdoors over a camp fire, portable stove or grill for any daytime or overnight outdoor camping activity.
