Join Us for Backpacking Interest Group (BIG) Info Night and Trainings


Backpacking Interest Group

Calling all Girl Scouts 6th grade and older (and adults, too! BIG is always looking for trip leaders)! You're invited to the  Girl Scout Backpacking Interest Group (BIG) Info Night on September 19th at 7 PM  at the Sunnyvale Sports Basement. Learn about gear, safety, cooking outdoors, and more: everything you need to have a blast backpacking in the California wilderness. BIG even has equipment to loan: backpacks, cooking gear, and shelters! 
 
Want to join BIG? Attend one of the three BIG Beginner Trainings! New members must attend a training in order to go on a trip with BIG. Attendees will be trained in backpacking basics; all three trainings are identical, so you only need to attend one.
