This training is a requirement for your troop to build a fire or stay at a
Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan property.

Virtual Volunteer Boot Camp Sessions - Fall 2020

Did you miss out on our Virtual Volunteer Boot Camp in the fall?

It may have looked a little different last year, but we were incredibly happy to serve our volunteers for our first-ever Virtual Boot Camp!

If you missed out on these opportunities, don't worry they will be offered again in the fall of 2021. A few of these courses were recorded, if you are interested in a specific course please email education@gshom.org and we will let you know if we have the information or be sure to include that course at our next Volunteer Boot Camp!
