Girl Scouts, Camp Togowoods Wilderness Adventure Program: Water Wilderness Adventures: Voyagers, Level 2

Camp Togowoods, Mat-Su

GRADES/AGES: Entering grades 6-8 | COST: $450

Wilderness trips take courage, confidence and character to the limit. In small groups, girls quickly learn to count on each other. You have to paddle or hike together or you don't get there. There is no one to do it but you, and you can do it. Our trip programs teach girls outdoor skills. More importantly, our wilderness trips lay a solid foundation for leadership, teamwork and self-confidence throughout girls' lives. All trek programs spend time in remote wilderness areas and, at many points on trail, groups will be more than two hours from professional medical help. Staff is trained in emergency backcountry procedures, carry satellite phones, and at least one staff member is certified in Wilderness First Aid. All programs require a properly-fitted backpack, wilderness-rated packable sleeping bag and hiking boots. Campers should be able to carry a 20-30-lb. backpack and, for canoeing treks, share the weight of carrying an 80-lb. canoe for up to a mile over land. All wilderness campers also experience the fun of our Girl Scout Camp programs.
