    Basic Camping Skills
    Required for: All registered and screened adult volunteers taking a troop/group on a day or overnight camping and/or outdoor cooking experience. The Basic Camping course must be completed every (5) years. 

    Girl Scouts Louisiana East offer various camping and outdoor enrichment courses, so as you and the girls’ progress from camping at one of our camp properties (or approved sites) to a trip and other interest, you are properly prepared for a safe and fun experience.

    Remember every troop/group must have a trained Camping Consultant who has completed all sessions of Camping Skills before planning an outing with a cookout or a camping trip. Progression is the critical component to guide girls in outdoor education – we want them to be self-sufficient with trained guidance.

Course topics include health and safety considerations for camping with groups, group dynamics in the out-of-doors, progression, program and environmental activities, outdoor skills (including safety, fire building, outdoor cooking methods, knife skills, cleaning and care of campsites, etc.) and minimal impact camping.Preregistration is required!
