Outdoor skills training

Looking for outdoor skills training to prepare you for a summer of fun?

We have two great trainings lined up to get you certified in archery and boating!

Archery and the Small Craft Safety certification courses are required, if you’d like to take girls to shoot archery or take them boating in any capacity (both Brownie-Ambassador).

Both certifications last for three years and will teach you all the basics of how to set up a class, instruct a fun and safe class, give you activity/game ideas, and make it impactful for girls!

The archery class is also open to girls 15-years-old and older, as well as adults! Small Craft Safety is only open for adults 18+.

Having this archery certification allows you to reserve our traveling archery gear set (bows, arrows, targets, protective gear) and take it to shoot anywhere you’d like!

There are zero requirements for taking the archery class. For Small Craft Safety, you need to know how to swim and tread water.
