Are you going indoor camping this summer? Join us for an Indoor Overnights Training Webinar. Required for all adults wanting to take their girls on an overnight with modern facilities. You will explore the progression needed to ready girls for an overnight trip, when girls are emotionally and physically ready to spend the night away from home. You will discuss planning the trip, paperwork, safety and activities for girls in the outdoors. Log-in details will be sent via email.
Get Making with Get Moving:
Makers like making things they're excited about— whether it's a craft, a piece of furniture, a robot, or a computer program. They like exploring new and different materials to
see what they can come up with and recycling old materials to give them a new life.
Being away from home can be hard for anyone. Why not help your camper feel special during camp this summer and send her a Pamper Your Camper Kit from GSNI? There are two types of kits available, a standard kit and one to send if your Girl Scout is celebrating a birthday while at camp.

We added an Outdoor Training this summer for those who may have missed the spring trainings. This training is required for all adults who are spending the night in an area without modern facilities. You will learn how to prepare a delicious, nutritious meal outdoors, safe dishwashing methods, review of fire building and safety and different types of cooking fires and methods. You’ll learn how to pitch a tent and put up mosquito netting, plus activities for camping, review of latrine care, and cleaning up with minimal impact to the environment. Participants are required to spend the night.

Moving at the “speed of girls,” Girl Scouts brings the camp experience into the twenty-first century! According to a new study by the Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI), More Than S’mores (2014), girls benefit immensely from time spent outdoors. Girls who regularly spend time outdoors eclipse their peers who spend less time outdoors in environmental stewardship, more readily seek challenges, and are better problem solvers—all important traits in twenty-first century leadership.
