    Adventure Camping Training

    There is nothing quite like adventure camping to help girls experience the great outdoors up close and personal, as they gain confidence, become resourceful and take on exciting challenges. Adventure camping training is typically for Pathfinder, Ranger and Trex Guiders who have prior tent camping experience and who wish to develop skills and knowledge in the delivery of activities such as backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, and winter camping.

    The OAL Guide to Adventure Camping resource (found on the Camping and Outdoors page of GGC Member Zone) is the basis for the training modules and an important pre-read to this training.

    The training program includes seven knowledge sessions (covered during the weekend), at least two expeditions and the completion of a participant skills checklist (a detailed list of adventure camping skills, knowledge and tasks).

    By completing the adventure camping training program, participants become eligible to act as trip assists on a Safe Guide Red level trip.

    This training is open to Guiders who have previous tent camping or equivalent experience. Guiders outside of Lougheed Area are also welcome to attend. The out of Area training fee is $60.

  • District Camp at Camp Jubilee

    May 25 - 27, 2018
    Location: Where: Camp Jubilee  - Indian Arm

    We have extended the deadline for District Camp.  Please see attached info sheet along with the SG.2 permission form.
    If you are able to come please submit the SG.2 along with the first payment of $90 by the week of Feb. 12-15 to your unit guider.

    Back by popular demand!  In 2012 and 2014 we held our District Camp at Camp Jubilee, and it was such a hit with girls and Guiders alike, they’ve been asking to do it again ever since!

    You will meet your Unit Guiders at a designated meeting spot (parent carpool recommended to Deep Cove).   From there, we will be hopping on a Water Taxi operated by Camp Jubilee for a 20 min ride up Indian Arm to the camp.

    Camp Jubilee operates high-quality children’s camps throughout the year, so they are prepared with the best staff, safety procedures, and facilities.  Activities with elements of risk (such as canoeing) are facilitated by Jubilee’s own highly trained/certified staff.  Your child will also be supervised by her own Guiders from your home unit throughout the weekend.
