Challenge yourself at your level and learn new skills as you progress in the outdoors through high adventure.
High Adventure is any activity that requires special training or skills to safely participate in. High adventure activities include horseback riding, archery, kayaking, rock climbing, backpacking, and many, many more.
All approved vendors must have a current certificate of insurance on file with the council. Check the “Insurance Expiration” column of the vendor list to ensure their certificate does not expire before your event.
Vendors are required to meet the following insurance requirements to be added to the vendor list:
$3 million dollars in general or umbrella insurance
List Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital as a Certificate Holder
If they lack the $3 million dollar insurance amount: list Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital as Additionally Insured.
Vendor insurance can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to:
GSCNC Attn High Adventure
4301 Connecticut Ave NW Suite M-2
Washington, DC 20008
The following types of vendors are automatically approved and do not require a certificate of insurance to be submitted. Vendors that fall into these categories will not appear on our approved vendor lists.
• Large amusement parks such as Kings Dominion, Six Flags, and Hershey Park
-Smaller-scale amusement parks/water parks still require a certificate of insurance.
• Vendors owned and operated by a federal, state, or local government agency.
• Commercial and public transportation vendors such as a commercial airline or Metro.
-Chartered bus transportation (where a group rents out an entire bus) does require a certificate of insurance.
Facilitators are required for all high adventure activities and troops are required to secure their own trained facilitators. Facilitators are provided for the Crowell Challenge Course and the White Rock Aerial Course.
Connect with other members of your service unit to see if someone has been trained in the high adventure activity you are interested in participating in.
Did you know we have a Rallyhood full of people who are trained in high adventure activities? Post the information regarding your reservation such as camp, activity, and time. To help find a facilitator for your activity.
If you are unable to secure a facilitator using any of the methods above, you can fill out the Volunteer Facilitator Request survey. If camping services are successful in locating a facilitator for your reservation you will receive a confirmation email and be placed in contact with the facilitator.
Completion of this form does NOT guarantee you a facilitator for your reservation.
If you are not contacted within two weeks of your reservation and you would like to cancel your high adventure reservation, please contact email@example.com
Our Council is looking to expand our list of volunteer high adventure facilitators!
Any teen member who is 16 years or older can join the high adventure apprentice program and become trained in all high adventure activities. Teens are required to submit a permission slip and complete the high adventure apprentice enrollment form which can be found here.
