Outdoor Training Extravaganza — OTEX — is an annual weekend with the mission of all participants receiving training in a multitude of specific outdoor skills. Participants will grow in knowledge, skill and self-confidence to enhance their girls outdoor experiences.

Consider yourself an indoor girl, but want to be an example of a risk-taker for the girls you mentor? This package will provide you some of the basics of being at camp without completing the camp certification. You'll learn Leave No Trace principles, how to make a snack on a pie iron and how to care for the cast iron, and how to help girls pack for their campout. You will also complete American Red Cross Basic Water Rescue and First Aid/CPR/AED certifications. The two certifications will allow you to meet the Safety Activity Checkpoints requirements in several areas.

Cost: $70/adult
