Basic Outdoor Skills Training gives leaders the skills needed to take Girl Scouts on a beginning outdoor overnight experience. Topics include the eight basic outdoor skills, using campfires to do basic outdoor cooking, how to cook foil meals, one-pot meals, and use a propane stove, how to use knives safely, knot tying, how to implement girl/adult planning and progression in outdoor activities, health, safety, and security controls to ensure the well-being of girls and adults and the experience of living in the out-of-doors. This is a facilitator-led course that is required before taking Girl Scouts on experiences where there will be outdoor cooking ( i.e., campfire or propane stove) or sleeping in an outdoor setting (bathroom facilities in a separate structure, i.e., platform tents, cabins, pitched tents).Course Prerequisite: GSUSA Girl Scouts in the Outdoors (on gsLearn for all registered adult members of GSHG).
