Training FAQs


How can I ensure a successful class experience?

  • Register early! Classes fill up quickly, so online registration is best.
  • Don't wait till the last minute to take classes. Allow some time to put tools to work with your girls.
  • No drop-ins! Materials are prepared according to number registered.
  • Not sure if you are registered or need to cancel? Email
  • On the day of your class, feel free to bring drinks and snacks. Arrive early so that class can get started on time.
  • Please arrange childcare — we cannot accommodate children.
  • If for some reason you cannot attend, please let us know so that someone else can take your spot.

Where do I get help with online class registration?

Contact or call (619) 610-0821. You may also submit a paper registration form via fax, email, mail or drop-off.


Do I need to take the Outdoor classes in order?

Basic Overnights, Let's Camp!, Let's Cook! and Let's Tent! are designed to be taken in order; each builds on the last. Give yourself time between classes to implement the ideas you learn.


Can I take First Aid or CPR elsewhere?

Yes! You may take First Aid or CPR from any authorized American Red Cross, National Safety Council, EMP America, American Heart Association provider (other certification providers must be approved; contact: for information). First Aid and CPR MUST have an in-person component. Training that is taken entirely online is not acceptable for Girl Scout safety management.


Can I bring my kids with me to class?

To provide an ideal learning environment, please make arrangements for childcare. Consider asking another troop parent to care for your child(ren) so you can receive training.
