Outdoor Experiences - Fall 2018 Pilot

Girl Guides of Canada Ontario Council Outdoor Experiences

Be among the first groups to try out the fully serviced programs offered through the pilot Outdoor Experiences program!

The pilot will be focused over four weekends in September/October 2018.

What you can expect:

- Opportunities for over 2,000 girls during the pilot phase
- 28 fully serviced programs with opportunities for all branches
- 14 third party organizations offering new and exciting program
- No costs for Guiders charged by a facility, up to max Safe Guide ratio for that activity or limited by a facility, participating in the Outdoor Experiences program
- Equalization of costs to the girls within the same type program on a per girl basis: $125 per girl for any of the pilot unit experiences, $195 per girl for Outward Bound program

Girls participating in this pilot who qualify for campership will also test the changes to the campership program. In order to qualify for campership support, the event being attended must conduct 80% of the programming in an outdoor environment.

Most of the Safe Guide paperwork for the activity has been completed by the Ontario Council office (excluding Safe Guide for transportation). Registrants will receive individualized instructions about which Safe Guide paperwork they must complete. Further information can be found in the FAQs.

An Outdoor Experiences crest will be provided to the members of any unit/individual participant who provides feedback on their experience!
