Girl Scout Leadership Experience
Camping provides girls the opportunity to experience nature, connect with other girls through cooperative learning and teamwork, discover their own outdoor skills, and to take action by using their new skills in future girl led outdoor experiences. Every girl deserves a chance to camp! Troops/Groups must have the proper girl-adult ratio and the troop/group must be accompanied by a Troop/Group Camper for the type of camping they are doing.
A Troop/Group Camper is an adult volunteer (this does not have to be the leader/co-leader) who has completed the required Outdoor Skills Training for the level of camping that the Troop/Group is ready for. This individual must be present on all Girl Scout Troop/Group camping trips to guide them during their outdoor experience and should also assist the Troop/Group in preparing for the trip. The Troop/Group Camper can be responsible for no more than 30 participants (including adults) during the same outdoor event. A Troop/Group Camper qualification is good for 5 years.
