High Adventure Teens - Backpacking/Hiking Lead
Adventure! Adventure! Adventure! If backpacking/hiking in the outdoors is your idea of fun and adventure, we are looking for you. Share your energy and love of the outdoors with Girl Scouts ages 11-17 as part of our High Adventure Teens program.
As a Backpacking/Hiking Lead, you will work with staff and other volunteers to lead girls as they plan and undertake their Backpacking/Hiking adventures. Activities can include but are not limited to primitive, overnight, coastal, urban, and minimal impact (leave no trace) backpacking, and/or day excursions, activities with walking clubs, and local park hikes.
The Backpacking/Hiking Lead's role is to work much like a Troop Leader, assisting the girls with their High Adventure Teens activities. We also would like your help establishing partnerships with community groups that would enhance the girls' activities.
