Interested in volunteering for the Girl Scouts as a hiking lead/guide?


Hello, everybody:



My name is Claudia Tori and I work as a volunteer recruiter at the Girl Scout Council of Orange County. We have an excellent volunteer opportunity for adults 18 or older who enjoy the outdoors, especially backpacking/ hiking, and will like to help a group of girls 11 through 17 years old.



Please, look at the posting below  and contact me at if interested. We also have positions available for guides and aides. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm and your time!  



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.



A basic backpacking course and Level 2 First Aid certification are required for this volunteer position.
