High Adventure

Girls: from glow-in-the-dark canoeing to wild caving – we have an adventure for you! Activities may include one, two, or more of the following topics:

  • Backpacking – carrying everything you need in a backpack for the weekend.
  • Camping – with a tent or without? In the spring or the winter?
  • Canoeing – so many opportunities like Firefly Float (glow-in-the-dark canoeing), certification classes in Canoe Levels 1 and 2, and canoe-camping where you take your gear with you in the canoe and camp along the river’s edge!
  • Hiking – going for long walks in nature on trails or other scenic terrains.
  • Outdoor Skills – progress from simple knowledge to advanced skills in outdoor manners, proper dress, rope skills, fire building, cooking, first aid, etc.
  • Rappelling – in your harness and helmet, descending a height by lowering yourself on a rope with feet against the wall.
  • Rock Climbing –in your harness and helmet, climbing up attached to a rope that is anchored at the top of the climb with a belayer to  protect you from falling very far.
  • Scrambling – climbing on large boulders discovering your power and strength while enjoying the camaraderie of working as a team – a climber and a spotter.
  • Wild Caving – with your sources of light, a helmet, and a guide, you’ll be exploring (non-commercial) a series of underground chambers.

Our volunteer outdoor educators are always looking for new ways to share the great adventure of the out-of-doors with our Girl Scouts. Whether you have experience or only want to assist, new adult volunteers are always needed and welcomed so be sure to contact us and get involved. The more volunteers we have, the more adventures we can provide for girls – sounds like fun, right?
