Camping is a great way to build new skills, get a sense of community, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether you go for a day, a week or longer, Girl Scout camping gives you an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun—always under the guidance of caring, trained adults. Every girl should have a chance to camp!
If you're one of those leaders that your idea of camping is "Camp Marriott", please let us at the SU level know, as there are plenty of troops that will take your girls camping along with them so that they can get that experience!
Council Camping Training
Leaders need to obtain 3 levels of training before camping.
The Camping Skills training sessions are presented in three progressive levels and need to be taken in order. Level I is a prerequisite for Level II, and Level II is a prerequisite for Level III.
Minimum enrollment for Level I and Level III is five. Minimum enrollment for Level II is 15. Maximum enrollment for each training session is 30.
In order to progressively practice these new skills, it is recommended that each level be taken at least one month apart.
