Trip or High-Adventure Approval Form

Please refer to the Current COVID-19 Guidelines for GSNorCal Members completing this form. It will provide you guidance on how your troop can safely travel and/or participate in high-adventure activities during these uncertain times. Note that by allowing your child to participate in Girl Scout activities and events: a) you acknowledge that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists for any in-person activity, including meetings, activities, events, and trips; and b) you are voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Girl Scouts of Northern California, or any of its directors, employees, agents or volunteers, liable for any illness or injury. 


To complete this form, it is best to create an account just in case you will need to pause at some point to gather more information or complete a training. You will also need the following:
  • A complete Trip Roster Form. This is not the same as the troop roster that you find in your Volunteer Toolkit.
  • A copy of your Troop First Aider's current CPR/First Aid card or certificate, which is renewed every two (2) years. Their certification must be current. Your Troop First Aider must also be a current member of Girl Scouts of Northern California and have a current background check on file. Background checks are renewed every three (3) years. 
The Outings, Trip & Travel Planning Guide in the Volunteer Essentials is the perfect guide to preparing your troop for activities, day trips, or travel. It explains GSNorCal policies regarding the forms, required training, and more. If you still have questions, feel free to reach out to the Risk Management Team through or by calling (510) 562-8470 ext. 1104 directly. 
Our administrative offices are open Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00 PST. We are closed on major holidays and weekends.
