Indoor Overnight & Camping Skills
This is a combination class of Indoor Overnight & Camping Skills where participants will spend the night in tents. Take this class 8-10 weeks before you plan your first overnight/camping activity. This allows for planning progression with your troop and proper paperwork approval.
Indoor Overnight - Learn the basics of what you need to know for overnight adventures indoors, more information about the forms you need for any kind of trip, and how to do it safely and within your budget. This is the first class required in the overnight progression for an adult to take a group on an indoor overnight experience where girls sleep in an indoor structure, i.e. a cabin, community room, home… this includes slumber parties and where food is provided, purchased or the girls cook in a conventional kitchen. Adventure awaits! Camping Skills - For leaders and co-leader who want to take your troop camping the Girl Scout way. It includes outdoor cooking, camping skills, fire safety, Leave No Trace, camping equipment use, sleeping in the backyard, and tents, and more.

1. Compartmentalized Overnights (hotels, hostels, time shares, other rentals, etc.) are considered travel activities.
