Girls will learn the basics of being a PA including working with girls and adults, age characteristics of different program levels, as well as program planning and coordination.
The Camp Specialty is for girls interested in being PAs at camp and covers Outdoor Skills including cooking, fire building, and knife safety.
This training is a two-night overnight and will include other activities as well. Other activities may include; hiking/snow games (weather allowing), crafts, farm tour, campfire, etc. Girls will have the opportunity to mix training with good old fashion camp fun!
Girls must have completed their Leader In Action award before they can register for this program.
After this training, girls will need to complete six activity sessions (PA internship) to complete their training and earn their pin.
Adults are encouraged (but not required) to attend. The cost is free and you may be asked to help lead sections of the training if applicable/experienced. I.e. Outdoor Cooking, Knife Safety, intro to GSUSA Journeys, etc. Adult training including “overnights” is a plus.
Minimum of 5 adult volunteers required to run this event.
