Cookout & Campout- Hybrid: This 30-hr. training is complete
through online modules (done at your own pace), a virtual planning
meeting, and an overnight skills session at a camp. Registration is
through gsLearn. There is no upfront cost to register for this
course, but participants will be asked to pay for necessary supplies
Cookout & Campout- Traditional: This 30-hr. training is complete
through an overnight skills session at a camp. Registration is through
gsEvents. Participants must pay $25 for food and supplies upon registration.
For troops who only want to make s’mores over a fire and not take an
overnight camping trip, a volunteer must complete the online module
“204 Girl-led Fire and S’more Safety” located in gsLearn.
Volunteers who have done camping training through another Girl Scout
council, through Boy Scouts of America, or another organization can
take the “204 Transfer of Camping Certification” located in gsLearn.
Each person will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis.
