Girl Scout troop and Service Unit camping is a fun and educational opportunity for girls to learn about nature and experience outdoor group living. As with everything in Girl Scouting, we must be prepared to offer a safe experience and one that delivers a quality learning program.
Here is a summary of the requirements for troop/group camping based on the information in the Safety & Risk Management section of your Volunteer Essentials Handbook. (If you have not received a copy of the Volunteer Essentials Handbook, please contact your Service Unit Director or Membership Manager.)
