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.
