As adult volunteers you have explored the first 3 steps in the GSUSA Outdoor Progression with girls in the troop and are ready to Explore Out. This class helps you understand the importance of moving from simple hunts and hikes in your community (close to your meeting site), to short day trips (maybe including a brown bag meal), and eventually to longer trail walks (lasting most of the day or longer). Adults discuss skills needed, things to pack, and items to consider when moving further out. You will investigate common fears and concerns girls and adults may have about going as well as considering Leaving No Trace Principles.
