New Guider Training Day
Safe Guide
Safe Guide training is required by all Guiders within 6 months of their join date…
This training will show you how to navigate Safe Guide for a year of fun, safe activities! Safe Guide is a valuable resource with a friendly hands-on approach to managing risk. Packed with great information and tips, we will cover everything from minimum supervision and ratios, Emergency Response Plans and clothing lists…with an emphasis on fun activities and outdoor adventure. Preparedness starts with careful planning, communication and documentation. All activities have some degree of risk. Safe Guide provides a step-by-step process to help you identify and manage risk.

Safe Guide supports Guiders as they offer girls opportunities that will help them be confident and resourceful. Through many hands-on activities, camps and events, girls can have fun, learn, lead and be inspired to challenge themselves…all while staying safe.

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!

*More details will be provided upon registration! Let’s have fun in the outdoors!

Guiders and girls will rotate through a ‘hands-on’ round robin of training opportunities that will cover camp cooking with yummy tasters (always a hit with both girls & leaders!), shelters, tents, stoves & lanterns as well as fire lighting!
