Prepare yourself with the skills needed to be a success!
Girl Scout adult trainings provide leadership teams and other adult volunteers the knowledge and skills necessary for working with girls of all age levels. The courses are designed to enrich both girl and adult experiences.
Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee is pleased to offer Camping Skills 1, Camping Skills 2, and First Aid/CPR training free of charge to one adult in every troop.
Youth Protection is a required training for any volunteer, parent, or staff member that works regularly with girls. Some of the topics include how to recognize signs of child abuse and neglect, information on prevention, and steps to report suspected abuse.
Camp Ready Training is an online required training for any volunteer, parent, or staff member that plans to utilize camp properties or other outdoor locations for any amount of time.
- If your troop is reserving a property for Day-Use Only, no other Camping Skills trainings will be needed.
- First AID/CPR is required for all reservations/activities.
- Only one adult attending is required to complete this training. It is recommended that ALL volunteers attending complete this training.
Camping Skills training is now Outdoor Skills!
We have revamped our camping skills requirements and curriculum for troop camping! Outdoor Skills is a more focused, shorter training than combined Camping Skills 1 and 2, and is required for reserving a unit or an overnight reservation at a GSMIDTN property. You’ll learn the basics of fire-building, three ways to cook outdoors, knife safety and more!
- Cancellation Policy
Trainings, like all GSMIDTN programs and events, operate on a first-come, first-served basis. By registering for a training, you have reserved your spot; we use registration numbers to purchase supplies and schedule trainers for each session. As such, we require that cancellation or rescheduling of trainings be received no later than 3 weeks prior to the training to be guaranteed a refund or transfer of monies paid. While we can help you to reschedule a training, we ask that you do so prior to three weeks before it is scheduled. Unpaid registrations are not considered notice of cancellation and full payment is expected.
If you used your troop’s Free Training Credit to pay for a training, please note GSMIDTN’s policy: For First Aid/CPR Skills Test, Camping Skills 1, and Camping Skills 2, if a volunteer is using their free training credit and cancels and/or reschedules within 3 weeks of the training they risk losing that free training credit for the year. Exceptions will be made at GSMIDTN’s discretion for illness and family emergencies.
If a training is cancelled by GSMIDTN for any reason, a refund will be issued. Volunteer Resources will contact you if the training is postponed, rescheduled, or cancelled due to inclement weather. Please use your best judgement when traveling. Full payment is required unless written cancellation is received 3 weeks prior to an event. Refunds for unexpected sickness or family emergencies will be considered upon request.
To request a refund, submit the request with explanation in writing.
