This orientation will prepare you to take Girl Scouts on non-camp, 1-2 night outings. This will allow you to take girls to indoor council-sponsored events and indoor overnights
We offer a variety of resources and networking opportunities to help volunteers feel confident leading girls. Interested and new volunteers should refer to our Become a Volunteer page for more information.
GSEMA Forms and Documents, including Volunteer Essentials and Volunteer Policies & Procedures, are available on our Forms webpage. In addition, key documents for troop leaders are now grouped by category within the Volunteer Toolkit.

Ready for more adventures? Camping, overnights, and excursions are
some of the most memorable experiences in Girl Scouting. Make sure
you’re prepared! Many programs require safety or outdoor skills
training in order to keep girls safe and provide them with the best
possible experiences. Visit our troop
camping webpage for details about outdoor training opportunities
and requirements, as well as information on outdoor adventures. For
overnights not on GSEMA property, be sure to complete a Girl
Scout Activity Form for required pre-approval four weeks in
advance of your activity.
