Some of the most memorable experiences girls have in Girl Scouts, begin with their first overnight trip! Having that first big adventure with their troop is an exciting time for the girls and for you.
To support your experience as a volunteer, Girl Scouts of Colorado offers training that guides you through the process of working with your troop to help them plan their progressive adventures.
One of those classes is Overnight Trips, newly revised and live on our eLearning site! New resources have been added to the class too. You will find a comprehensive list of best places to go, with links to websites and contact information. You can use it to jumpstart your brainstorm session with the girls in your troop about possible overnight venues or destinations. The class guide includes a sample itinerary and packing lists, along with additional information to support your troop planning process. There are links to Girl Scouts of Colorado properties and camp information, along with links to the forms you will need as well.
Overnight Trips is an essential and required training for volunteers planning a trip of one-two nights with their troop, and it is a prerequisite class for Extended Trips and Cooking and Camping.
