"Prerequisite: Outdoor 101 This four-hour course focuses on understanding how to make, use and extinguish a campfire; tips on planning, preparation and clean-up steps for a cookout; learning basic tool crafts and elementary knots; making simple meals; knife safety; graces to use in the camp setting; and learning how to work in partnership with girls for outdoor cooking experiences. This course is geared toward, but not limited to, troop leaders of girls in grades 2-5. Completion of this training allows you to stay overnight in lodges and cabins at council-owned properties, and to lead cookouts and have campfires. It is also required for any outdoor cooking or fire building at any site—including non-Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania properties."
