You may think it's only for Boy Scouts, only for the most hardcore outdoorsman, only for the fittest of the fit. But you are mistaken.
Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama, in partnership with the Alabama Wildlife Federation, are putting together a backpacking program where interested girls can learn all about the skills, equipment and techniques of hiking the great outdoors. We will have a few meetings to train, learn skills and earn badges. The program will then culminate in an overnight backpacking trip.
If you think you may be interested, talk with your troop leader about it. If you think you know nothing about the sport, call me up or look it up on the web or in books.
Please contact me if you are interested, so I can start planning our meetings!
