OWL and FLIGHT School
Outdoor awareness is becoming more important than ever. So we wanted
to take the time to host a training day for the most important members
of Girl Scouts… you! That is why we have created our Outdoor “Weekend”
for Learning (OWL) Flight School.
Girl members looking to attend this training day must be a Cadette,
Senior or Ambassador. For our water based training girls must be
16 years old for the certificate to be valid. These trainings
are designed for Girl Scouts who have taken or will be soon taking
their PA, LIA, or CIT I or CIT II. We are proud to invite our older
girls to join in and become part of the OWLete outdoor certified team.
Registration links for the workshops can be found on the Events Calendar. The price for the entire day is
up to you and how many workshops you sign up for.
