Overnight Orientation Self-Study
This course is a pre-requisite for Troop Camper Certification. This is a self study course that covers readiness, progression, overnight facilities, girl planning, emergency procedures, safety tips, parent communication, equipment, adult responsibilities and program information.
Who should take Overnight Orientation?
        One adult per troop before these activities:
                >>     Sleepovers in private homes, including tent camping in the yard
                >>     Community encampments
                >>     Overnights at hotels, motels, environmental centers, and other activity centers
**No campfire or cooking are allowed at these activities unless one adult is trained in Troop Camper Certification.
*Please note: If you plan on tent camping at a campground on your own (not as part of a community encampment- for example, tent camping at Hershey Park or tent camping at Beach Jam), you must take the Troop Camper Certification, Part 1 & Part 2.
