What is an Approved Outfitter?

An “Approved Outfitter” is defined as: a location, facility and/or specific high adventure that have completed the Girl Scouts Heart of Central California’s approval process. They meet Girl Scouts USA safety and insurance requirements, and are ready to work with you and your troop.

*Please note: that this list is updated periodically and vendors may change without notice.

Which activities require approval?

The council must approve sites and vendors (Approved Outfitters) for activities that are considered high adventure/high risk BEFORE a troop uses the site or vendor for a troop, service unit or council event. This procedure is designed to ensure a safe experience for our girls, as well as to protect the legal interests of the adult volunteers and the council.

High risk is defined as: any activity that requires specialized skills, training, equipment and/or supervision on the part of the participant, instructor and/or the vendor. Examples of these include but are not limited to: Horseback riding, rock climbing, low & high ropes, climbing walls, canoe/kayak, paddleboard, surfing, indoor trampoline, indoor skydiving or shooting sports or locations and/or sites that provide these types of activities. For a complete list reference: Safety Activity Checkpoints

 “Activities at a Glance,” is an easy reference grid with respect to grade-level specifications for activity participation, council approval requirements, and instructor credentialing (i.e., required certification/experience).


What if a vendor is not on the list?

We are always on the lookout for new opportunities to bring to our girls and volunteers. To request vendors and/or activities to be approved, please submit the Approved Outfitter Vendor Request Form below. Please remember to plan your activities accordingly; the approval process can take 2 to 4 weeks.

*Please note: submission of the request does not automatically indicate approval.  GSHCC staff will review the request, contact the vendor if necessary and post to the Approved Outfitters List once approved.
