Join this hands-on, small group adult volunteer learning experience to sharpen your outdoor skills. Focuses on fire building, outdoor cooking and providing a positive outdoor experience for girls.
Required before the first camping or outdoor cooking adventure.
It is recommended to complete Trip Planning Basics before Outdoor Basics. It can be completed by home study or group session. The home study can be found under the Volunteer tab, Volunteer Learning, then look under Trip Planning Basics.
Dress for the weather. It is always suggested to dress in layers. Insect repellent is suggested. This training takes place out-of-doors. Bring a dunk bag with boilable plate, bowl, cup and silverware. Please no paper plates. A dunk bag is a lightweight mesh bag which will hold your washed dishes and table wear. A lingerie bag with a string handle works well.
