Girls on the Move Study Guide, Quiz and Evaluation
Complete the following form to receive credit for Girls on the Move with Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
This training is required for adults who are preparing Girl Scouts to leave their regular meeting space and progressively participate in field trips, day trips and indoor overnight adventures (up to 3 nights) within a closed structured building that has the following amenities: water, heat, toilets, lights, kitchen facilities, and cell/phone coverage. During this course we will explore many ways to assist you and your girls to plan and implement safe, fun and successful activities.
You will learn how to:
Determine readiness of girls and adults and the steps in planning a series of outings
Make a group safety plan
Learn the rules of the road, and what paperwork is needed
Decide on appropriate manners and rules
Discuss how to dress for day trips
Pack for indoor overnights
Know the triggers of homesickness
It is recommended that this course is completed from 3 to 6 months prior to any outing with girls. This will allow you to put the skills learned into practice and make the most of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
