Mega-Training 2014, that took place last weekend was a lot of fun. Over 50 participants spent the day learning, crafting, building fires, cooking lunch and more. Sharon Pohly, GSNI-M CEO, kicked off the event with an inspiring presentation reminding us why we volunteer with Girl Scouts. Then participants moved on to their morning sessions where they experienced and learned about proficiency badges, Journeys, ceremonies, travel ideas, 1st Aid/CPR, the higher Girl Scout awards, the 3 Girl Scout Processes and outdoor skills.
Lunch break offered volunteers time to eat their sack lunch, dine on the provided lunch, shop at the traveling Girl Scout shop or just visit with fellow volunteers.
Than it was back to sessions in the afternoon focusing on STEM activities, activities to teach inclusiveness, ideas to incorporate the Girl Led process, knots and knives, creating trading card SWAPS and the very popular Grab & Go activities. Also offered throughout the day were grade level specific discussion groups. Even the Outdoor Basics group had a good time while trying to keep warm and cook their lunch over an open fire.
If you attended this event, share what you learned with others. If you weren’t able to attend, you missed a fun time!
