Whether your troop is new to outdoor adventure or seasoned pros, REI can teach girls new skills and help them earn outdoor and camping Badges. Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors can schedule 15-30 minutes to talk to an expert about camping and hiking gear. Please call in advance to make sure a representative in the store is available to speak with you. Please come prepared with at least two questions each.
Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors can schedule information sessions to meet badge requirements. Info sessions must be booked a minimum of 4 weeks in advance and have a minimum of 15 people and a maximum of 35 people. You can also schedule hands-on classes to learn outdoor skills or meet a badge requirement. These classes range from $10-$50 per person. Please contact for more information on specific classes and pricing. All classes must be booked a minimum of 4 weeks in advance and class size varies from about 6-12 people based on the class.
To sign up for a regularly scheduled class, check out their website and class list. Class categories include climbing, cycling, fitness, hiking, camping, navigation, paddling, photography, snow sports, stewardship, and wilderness medicine. Members of REI receive discounts on classes for themselves and anyone they sign up.
