Girl Scouts-North Carolina Coastal Pines requires at least one outdoor certified adult volunteer accompany a troop camping trip. To become an outdoor certified adult, volunteers must complete Let’s Go Outside, Let’s Go Exploring, and Let’s Go Camping. Those wishing to get their outdoor certification in one weekend, may choose to complete Let’s Go Camping: All-in-One which covers all three modules.
