Hello YAYA Hiker Wanna Bees!!
Many of you have been awaiting the next workshop; this workshop is your entry ticket into the fabulous world of hiking with our group. Read on!
Oh, you are already a YAYA hiker-great please share this info with your troop members that want to get hikin’ with us.
Who are the Girl Scout YAYA Hikers
YAYA=Young Adults Yearning for Adventure.
We are an activity group, in addition to troop options, that offer monthly hiking outings to Girl Scouts in 6-12th grade.
Girls may come on their own; this is not a whole troop activity nor does a parent have to come.
Girl Scout trained chaperones and transportation are provided too.
To get started: Scouts take the YAYA Hiking 101 workshop…. Then come hiking! It is that simple. Leaders (parents too) of any program level may also take the Hiking 101 class to supplement your Outdoor Leadership training.
*Next Hiking 101 workshop:
Friday March 28: Time: 5:45 to 8 PM in Edmonds
Want to go Backpacking too? This workshop is now done in small groups for scouts that have already come day hiking and have shown they have the stamina to backpack. Oh yea and they need to weigh 100#.
Hiking Schedule: We day hike January thru November, 11 months a year.
Backpack trips are added from March-October.
A 50 Miler Backpack is set for August 2015.
