Date & Time

5/17/2014
1:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Sponsored by: Clusters 3 and 4

Who should attend:
  • adult volunteers. Girl Scout Seniors/Ambassadors may attend and can serve as the troop's certified camper upon becoming an adult member.

Camp Out (8 hours):  Camp Out assists in building the skills needed to prepare girls for troop camping, including camping in tents and other shelters in established campsites. Participants will receive hands on experience with fire building, use of propane stoves, care of platform tents, tent pitching and usage, tool craft, knots, care of aluminum pots, use and care of ironware, cooking by a variety of methods, and use of coolers for storage of perishable food items.  Although participants do not plan the food for their training, during the training all participants complete a meal planning exercise and food preparation.  Camp Out is valid for five years or until you complete Wilderness Travel, Outdoor Update, or repeat Camp Out, whichever comes first. Camp Out authorizes registered Girl Scout adults to take troops/groups camping in tents at Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana camps and developed tent areas. Overnight camping in tents is optional during this training course, so if you want, you can stay overnight in a platform tent. Prerequisites: Camp In. What to bring: bring a mess kit/dunk bag and a pocket knife (if you own one); you will receive an email with additional information before the weekend.

This course is being offered as part of the Outdoor Training Weekend. Please click on "Register Link" for complete details/fees/registration packet.

Planning registration deadline: Friday, May 2, 2014.
Final registration deadline: Friday, May 9, 2014.
