This year we are trying something new! This training will give the newer Guider some activity ideas and the skills necessary to plan and take girls outside for some safe outdoor fun! The session will include a short hike with examples of outdoor games, orienteering, nature walk resources and other activities that provide fun examples. The day will include samples of paperwork, first aid resources and methods of ensuring you have all your participants and haven’t lost anyone along the way and will lay the foundation for a ‘love of nature and the outdoors’ for many years to come!
*This will be a rain or shine activity so dress for the weather of the day*More details will be provided upon registration! Let’s have fun in the outdoors!
Needs Assessment...Perhaps you are ready for some additional challenges ...Depending on the needs and experience of the Guiders who register for this session, we can include additional information and skills for you to take your girls to an established tenting camp (platform tents, huts etc.)where the focus is on safe and fun outdoor camp life!
Please join us...the magic of camp awaits!
This training is also a prerequisite for ‘Under the Boughs’ which is our annual snow camping experience and is strongly recommended for anyone wanting to take on winter activities.
This session is all about how to stay dry, warm and having fun no matter what the weather!
