Outdoor Skills Weekend

Save these dates for OSW, as safety guidelines allow:
  • Friday-Sunday, Oct. 1-3, 2021

In 2020, at our virtual edition of Outdoor Skills Weekend, we convened in Remo where participants mingled with old friends and made new ones. While this event typically has breakout sessions, we shared training material in video streams instead. Videos covered great tips for outdoor cooking, crafts and activities for keeping hands busy, tips on how to safely gather outdoors so Girl Scouts could get back to nature, and so much more. Our very own Camp Winacka turned 45 in 2020, so we also celebrated this special year and what Winacka and camping have meant to us all.


Your $20 registration includes access to the Outdoor Skills Weekend virtual event in Remo as well as the event patch and T-shirt. Event patch is as shown, and the shirt will be inspired by the same imagery.

In order to use resources wisely, we’ll be placing patch and T-shirts orders after registration closes. This mean they will not be ready before the event.

Registration closes on Friday, Oct. 2 at 1 p.m.—unless we sell out sooner!


We’ll meet Saturday, Oct. 3, 5-8:30 p.m.

We’ll share specifics soon, but know that there are no breakout sessions this year. All training content and discussion will occur in the Remo platform. (Some of you may be familiar with this platform from the Volunteer Conference.) We’ll also be building in plenty of networking time so you can reconnect with old friends and make some new ones!

Accessing the Event

We’ll send out invitations to the Remo platform a little bit closer to the event. Right now, you can:

  • Make sure you have access to a laptop or desktop for the event; mobile devices are not recommended.
  • Check which internet browser you have; Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are preferred.
  • Follow Remo’s checklist to be sure your camera, mic, and system are ready to go.
  • Choose a picture to use as your profile picture in Remo—you’ll be able to edit this once you have access to Remo.
Fun Stuff

Virtual SWAPs are a thing! Learn how to make yours with this handy tip-sheet.

If you’ve got an Outdoor Skills Weekend shirt from years past, plan to wear it to the event. Let’s see if we can represent all 20+ years of OSW in shirts! You can wear another camp shirt or GS shirt if you don’t have an OSW shirt handy.


While some recordings of this event will be available afterward, we won't be able to record discussion sessions, nor can we help you network with your Girl Scout sisters after the fact. You'll want to be sure to join us for the full experience!
