Join GSNorCal's Backpacking Interest Group (BIG) for Beginner Trainings!


Girl Scout Backpacking Group

Calling all Girl Scouts 6th grade and older (and adults, too—we're always looking for trip leaders)! You're invited to our Girl Scout Backpacking Interest Group (BIG) Info Night on Wednesday, September 18 at 7 PM  at the Sports Basement in Sunnyvale. Come learn everything you need to have a blast backpacking in the California wilderness —gear, safety, cooking outdoors, and more! BIG even has equipment to loan: backpacks, cooking gear, and shelters! 
 
Can't make it to our info night? Attend one of our BIG Beginner Trainings and learn about becoming a member! No experience needed—attendees will be trained in backpacking basics, such as gear, safety, and outdoor cooking. New members must attend a training in order to go on a trip with BIG. No gear? No problem—BIG even has equipment to loan: backpacks, cooking gear, and shelters!
