Events & Activities
Whitney Olesen is a newby with Girl Scouts, but the camping experiences she had with her family give her all the cred she needs to be an Outdoor Specialist with GSHOM. She has a passion for and a background in adventure expeditions geared specifically towards girls. Whitney said the vision the Council has for its girls fits the vision she has for those expeditions and she’s “very excited” to have found a place where she can continue to share that passion with others. She maintains the safety factor by coming up with an approach that will decrease the level of actual risk while maintaining the level of excitement and challenge the girls will feel when faced with a new experience. “I want the girls to expand their comfort zone, become empowered, and to start developing life skills that they can bring home with them,” Whitney says.
