Girl Scout Leadership Training Retreat - Pinedale (Adults)
Calling all leaders, volunteers, and staff! You are invited to a fun overnight training retreat at the beautiful and rustic Camp Open Door North of Pinedale, Wyoming. At the retreat, you will get the tools necessary to manage your troop, take your troop camping, and help your girls earn Journeys awards. You can also take this opportunity to become a training facilitator. Participants will receive the following trainings: Troop Management, Joy in the Journey, and Outdoor Trainings 1 & 2.
Participants who have already completed any of these trainings are eligible to become GSMW facilitators for those trainings. Please contact your local GSLE for more information.
The Troop Management course provides information to help you help your girls develop leadership skills. You will get an overview of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and you'll learn how to effectively partner with your girls to make their plans & goals a reality.
The Joy in the Journey training will teach leaders to use the Journeys girl books and adult guides. Participants will learn about ready-made resources, tips to customize the Journey, and age-appropriate activities designed for girls.
In Outdoor Training 1 & 2, leaders will learn how to effectively plan a trip, prepare simple meals, start safe fires, pitch a tent, practice Leave No Trace, and more.
Each participant will receive a handbook for each training, tools for outdoor adventures, a camping cookbook, and a binder for all the resources. Facilitators in training will also receive the training modules and materials for each training. GSMW will provide participants with one dinner, one breakfast, and one lunch.
