Wilderness Hiking - High Adventure Group
8:30 to 12:30 pm classroom in Irvine
1-4:30pm beginner hike in Irvine
Designed for individuals, our three-step wilderness progression safely takes girls and adults out of the campground and into the woods! Wilderness Hiking covers outdoor skills and knowledge, and is a prerequisite for Basic Backpacking Course and Advanced Backpacking Trips. Spend your morning in the classroom and your afternoon on the trail, learning about safety, proper gear and equipment, the Leave No Trace ethic, building independence in girls. This class lays a strong foundation for more extraordinary adventures, such as backpacking. Leaders and RAs will get insight on how to take their girls hiking safely on their own in the Girl Scout way.
Class fees include course materials and a “10 Essentials” starter kit. Classes start at a classroom location then move to local trails for the afternoon.
This class is a pre-requisite for Basic Backpacking and Advanced Backpacking Trips.
