Get outdoors in new ways with Outdoor Experiences

Outward Bound Outdoor Experiences for individuals
This two-day overnight course introduces participants to new adventures in the outdoors and provides an inspiring journey to help each girl be everything she wants to be! Hike, camp, explore who you are and challenge yourself without leaving the city. In the Outward Bound Outdoor Experience, Pathfinder, Ranger and Trex members are registered by their parent/guardian on an individual basis (they do not need to attend with their unit).

DIY with our Preferred Vendors
Choose from a list of vendors vetted by GGCON then plan your own unit weekend. Some of the Safe Guide paperwork is templated for you already. You do the booking, paperwork and registration and choose from options that may include catered food or facilitated program (dependent on facility).

Provincial Camping Programs
