301a Outdoor Education Planning Session

GS301a Outdoor Education Online Planning Session

GS301a Training is required for those volunteers who want to participate in any camping activities with their troop or group including: packing gear, pitching tents, planning menus, fire building, cooking over a fire/portable stove/grill for any daytime outdoor camping experience or staying overnight at camp.

You must complete the GS301a Planning Session at least three weeks before your scheduled Overnight. This allows time for your patrol to plan your menus for the overnight session. Refer to chart for details.

To be Outdoor Education trained, volunteers must complete the entire Outdoor Education course which includes: 301a Outdoor Education Planning Session and 301b Outdoor Education Overnight Session weekend camping trip. Both 301a and 301b must be taken in the same training season (fall or spring). Attendance for the entire weekend is required during the 301b overnight session.
