Camping 101

Camping 101 will help prepare you to take a Girl Scout troop camping in a building. Topics include how to involve girls in the planning process, what equipment to bring, safety and sanitation, meal planning, basic fire-building, an overview of Girl Scout camp properties and how to reserve facilities for your camping trip.
Completion of Camping 101 qualifies adults to take a group camping in a building (heated with basic amenities including a stove, refrigerator, running water and bathroom or latrine). It is a prerequisite for Camping 102.
Who is required to complete this training? At least one adult (more is even better!) in each camping group must complete this on-line course prior to your camping trip. At least one adult who has completed Camping 101 training must be present for the duration of campouts with girls.
