WELCOME GSHH Winter Programs This winter Girl Scouts

WELCOME GSHH Winter Programs This winter Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson has three all day or overnight outdoor adventures that need special planning on your part if you want to join the adventure. We are offering: Klondike Survival Derby (Rock Hill) January 20, 2018 Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors A winter survival adventure. Rock Hill Camp will be transformed into the Alaskan Yukon where Girl Scouts will be traversing the frontier from town to town and mountains to shore testing their survival skills as they compete for golden nuggets. Do you have the skills to survive? Can you shoot an arrow through a hole in a tree? Can you out smart your fellow competitors and win the golden nuggets? -------------------Polar Bear Overnight (Rock Hill) January 20, 2018 (start 4:00 p.m.) Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors Winter camping is fun and challenging. For those few hardy souls who come and brave the freezing winter weather in just a tent, we offer the GSHH Polar Bear Award. -------------------Jr. Klondike Exploration (Camp Addisone Boyce) February 3, 2018 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM Juniors and 6th Grade Cadettes While spending lots of time outdoors, we will build winter shelters, test our fire-making skills and learn the best technique to build and hoist a location signal in case we ever get lost.

Polar Bear Overnight Personal Equipment and Clothing Packing list Listed below are the items that are required for this specialized program. Please review the information and decide which items are already available, which could be borrowed and which may have to be purchased. Please do not wait until the last minute; it is up to you to have all the required equipment. For safety concerns, if you arrive without the correct equipment and/or clothing, you will be asked to leave. Camping in the winter can be a lot of fun, however, you must always be prepared to deal with severe winter weather. Everything on the following list is there for a reason, and the number one reason is for your safety Please make sure you read through the additional information about proper winter clothing and layering provided at the end of this presentation. Clothing Two pair non-cotton underwear wear one, put one in overnight bag/backpack One non-cotton mid-layer shirt wear one (if you sleep cold, pack one extra in overnight bag-optional) Two pair non-cotton long underwear shirt and pants wear one pair, pack one pair One non-cotton mid-layer pants wear (if you sleep cold, pack one extra pair, optional) Polar Fleece vest for over mid-layer shirt (optional but helpful) One heavy woolen, fleece or acrylic shirt/sweater Three pair non-cotton socks - wool or acrylic blend wear one pair during the day, put one pair in day pack, and pack one pair in overnight bag (you must change your socks before going to bed) Three pair silk or nylon sock liners Two pair water proof winter mittens/gloves One pair lighter gloves to work/cook in (these should be something that will protect your hands from the cold but are flexible enough to prepare food) One or two pair silk or nylon glove liners (optional but helpful) One pair waterproof ski/snow pants - wear (watch the weather; if there is a chance of wet snow or weather, a second pair of ski/snow pants will be needed) Warm waterproof winter jacket/parka One fleece neck gator or scarf

Sturdy, waterproof, insulated snow boots (not hiking boots) Two warm winter wool, fleece or acrylic blend hats that cover your ears - wear one, put one in day pack (you must have a hat to sleep in) Rain gear -- make sure you can cover up; if you get wet, there is almost no way to stay warm Personal Equipment - (Polar Bear Overnight) A great attitude and positive team spirit One hands free day pack One (only one) overnight bag 4 season sleeping bag - check label/manufacture for temperature rating. (NO summer/spring sleeping bags). It is for YOUR SAFTY that we require a winter sleeping bag. A dangerous and possibly life threatening condition called *hyperthermia can occur during the night while you are sleeping if you do not have the correct equipment and clothing. Warm comforter to lay on top of your sleeping bag NOTE: The sleeping bag and comforter can be packed in a second bag; they do not need to fit in the overnight bag. One plastic sheeting ground cloth at least 6x4 One camping sleeping pad (not blow up mattress) to use under sleeping bag Pillow Toilet articles - Keep it simple; we will be using latrines. No regular bathrooms/wash houses will be available. To be packed in Day Pack (Polar Bear Overnight) Mess kit or plastic plate/cup/bowl (make sure the cup is easily used with hot beverages) Plastic fork/spoon/knife Flashlight head lamp works very well (extra batteries)

Normal body temperature averages 98.6 degrees. With hypothermia, the bodies core temperature drops below 95 degrees, which will cause serious health risks. Jr. Klondike Exploration February 3, 2018 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM Klondike Exploration is for Juniors and 6th Grade Cadettes. While spending lots of time outdoors, we will build winter shelters and learn other various survival methods to stay warm and dry. We will test our fire-making skills in the snow or wet and cold ground, and learn the best technique to build and hoist a location signal in case we ever get lost. Bonus: we will also learn about ice safety and hypothermia and how to stay safe outdoors in the winter. We will pick up strategies of staying warm by playing Klondike Derby games and other activities. Our Jr. Klondike Exploration program is a base level winter survival program dedicated to teaching survival skills and knowledge that can be used when camping, hiking or during any prolonged exposure to cold, especially during the

winter. Girls/troops do not need prior experience or training to attend the Klondike Exploration program. They will, however, learn how to take care of themselves in the outdoors and come away with a new sense of appreciation of outdoor winter safety and fun. All the skills learned during the Klondike Exploration program directly relate to our Klondike Survival Derby offered to girls in 6th-12th grade. Girls/troops must adhere to the required clothing and equipment list. Anyone (including leaders and parents) who do not dress appropriately will be asked to leave for their own safety. Please make sure you read through the additional information about proper winter clothing and layering provided at the end of this presentation. Poor Planning often results in unsafe camping and hiking along with damage to our natural resources. Park rangers and emergency rescuers often tell stories of campers and hikers they have encountered who, because of poor planning and unexpected conditions, degrade the trails and many times put their lives and their rescuers lives at risk. Why is planning and dressing properly for an outdoor experience so important? It helps ensure your safety. It prepares you to Leave No Trace and minimizes trail and camping area damage. It contributes to accomplishing our adventures goals safely and enjoyably. It increases self-confidence and opportunities for learning more about nature. Jr. Klondike Exploration Clothing and Equipment List Clothing to wear the day of the program Wool or synthetic blend socks (plus one extra pair in your daypack) NO COTTON SOCKS Waterproof insulated snow/ski pants or waterproof windproof ski pants with mid-layer pants Snow/ski warm winter jacket

Mid-layer wool/fleece jacket or sweater Insulated snow boots (not hiking boots) Wool or synthetic blend winter hat that covers your ears Winter insulated waterproof gloves/mittens (plus extra pair in your day pack) Neck gator or scarf tucked in Thermal underwear, top and bottom (non-cotton type) Please bring the following in a hands-free daypack Bag Lunch Energy bar or GROP (trail mix-no peanuts) Refillable water bottle Plastic mug for Hot Chocolate/soup Plastic spoon Candle stub (whole candle not needed) Clean tuna fish can (no label) Note: So that you do not overheat and begin to perspire when traveling to camp, please remove your jacket, hat, gloves and scarf while in the car. Perspiration will cause your clothing to get wet; being wet in the outdoors during the winter is dangerous. Outdoor Clothing Information for GSHH Outdoor Winter Programs Nothing compares to the crisp, clean air of winter and the magnificent view of a snowy landscape. But any outdoor adventure, even a day at camp, requires careful planning and the right gear. Always check the weather and prepare for the worst conditions. The best way to be protected from the weather from head-to-toe during the winter is to wear layers. Enjoying our winter camp day to the fullest extent requires knowing how to dress. With the right clothes, a winters day at camp with friends while exploring new challenges can be a magical experience. But, unprepared, that day might leave you recalling a shivering, wicked-cold day and maybe even

health problems. The following list of clothing is designed to share advice and know-how for staying warm outdoors in the winter. When thinking about layering, please remember that as you exercise (hike, play, build shelters etc.), your body heats up and you do not need as much insulation. As a matter a fact, it is dangerous to get over heated in the winter because then you sweat, causing your clothing to get wet. We layer ourselves in the winter to help us stay cool when being active as much as staying warm. Types of Layers We list the different types of layers, which can be used in combination with each other to reach the ideal effect for the season, environment, and activity you are pursuing. These layers work together to achieve the four goals of wicking moisture, trapping in heat, insulating from cold and blocking wind and weather. When considering what to wear as you layer, anything made of cotton should not be used. The reason cotton is an absolutely terrible choice for winter weather is because cotton has little insulation value AND because it absorbs and then holds moisture. Worse yet, when a garment made of cotton gets wet, it loses ALL insulation value. Since being wet is a recipe for getting very cold very fast; cotton garments should never be considered when engaging in outdoor winter activities! Base Layer The base layer is the layer closest to your skin, meaning it collects the most sweat. The purpose of this layer is to keep you dry by pulling moisture away from your skin and spreading it throughout the fabric. At the same time this fabric should fit snugly and retain some insulating properties. Never wear cotton as layer, it does wick moisture, but then retains that moisture as the cotton loses its resiliency, loses its warmth, and causes too much evaporative cooling. There are two main categories of base layers: synthetic and wool. Synthetic layers are polypropylene (fleece like) or polyester long underwear, the benefits of which are that

they are not itchy, tend to be less expensive than wool, are more durable, and dry faster. Wool base layers are made primarily out of merino wool, which is thin and lightweight, less itchy than traditional wool, and does not retain stench. Although wool takes longer to dry than synthetics, it continues to insulate well even when wet. Either type of material is fine for all our winter programs at camp. Mid-Layer The purpose of the mid-layer is to capture warmth through trapped air. Typically a mid-layer is a fleece or a thick wool layer. A mid-layer usually has some loft to it to help trap the warm air, but is also breathable so it is not suffocating and sweatcausing underneath a shell or outer layer. Sometimes, particularly in the three-piece layering system, a mid-layer can also be an insulating layer such as a thin synthetic or down puffy. We recommend a zip-neck or a full zip mid-layer to make it easier to regulate heat. *Insulation Layer An insulation layer, whether synthetic or down, provides extra loft and warmth, essentially doing what a thick mid-layer does, but multiplied, and with a much higher warmth-to-weight ratio. Size your insulated layer jacket to fit comfortably over a light fleece (mid-layer) and underneath an outer waterproof shell. When the weather is dry, your insulated layer may be worn as an outer layer, keeping you warm around the campsite, or for extra warmth between activities. Most normal ski/snow jackets we use for winter outdoor activities combines this Insulation Layer with the outer layer. *Outer Shell The primary function of a shell is to protect you from the elements when conditions take a turn for the worst. An alternative to a separate Outer Shell is a jacket system mentioned above that combines the insulation layer with a shell. For example, most ski jackets take this approach since it is both less expensive and more convenient to have both layers combined. Similarly, some heavy winter jackets combine a thick insulation layer and a shell layer into a completely weatherproof winter coat. Most ski jackets are water resistant but not water proof.

No matter what layering system you chose you always want to pack waterproof raingear as your final layer, which will protect you from both rain and wind in extreme weather. *With normal winter wear, many times the insulation layer and the outer shell are the same winter jacket. Snow/Ski Pants We talked about shirts and jackets above. Please remember the layering system is also needed for the lower body. Base layer (after cotton underpants) long under-wear, insulated snow/ski pants and a waterproof outer shell is also needed. Winter Socks: When spending time outdoors in winter weather while participating in camping and derby activities, a quality winter sock should be worn. The importance of wearing the right sock in winter weather cannot be understated. Wearing the latest, greatest and most expensive winter boot will do little to combat cold feet if you are wearing cotton socks. So, what do you wear for a sock during the winter? For cold weather, a sock made of wool, IsoWool, shearing, fleece or similar types of synthetic materials should be used. The reason these types socks are excellent for winter wear is because if the socks get wet (due to excessive perspiration from the foot or from rain/snow), the socks themselves do not lose their insulating properties. Additionally, these socks are also generally far thicker than a standard thin cotton sock, allowing the sock to absorb far more moisture. Moreover, and one of the neatest features of these types of socks, is that they can actually dry themselves out by simply being worn. The body heat of a person can actually dry out these types of socks. Sock Liners The sock liner is probably the most forgotten about asset in keeping your feet dry in cold weather. A sock liner pulls double duty both by adding in some extra

insulation value (although it is very marginal) as well as by effectively transferring perspiration from the foot directly to the sock that the person wears. In essence, a sock liner takes the water off your foot and moves it to the sock with the sock liner itself remaining perfectly dry (due to the construction of these types of socks). Because of transfer of moisture off the foot to the sock, your feet remain perfectly dry (even during periods of great exertion), thus greatly increasing the probability of keeping your feet warm. Winter Gloves Gloves/mittens for outdoor winter activities should be constructed with three layers a waterproof outer shell, an insulation layer all the way to the fingertips (down feathers or a synthetic like Primaloft), and an inner liner that can wick away moisture. Some winter gloves/mittens come with all three layers; but if you purchase or own gloves without the liner layer, you can purchase glove liners separately. Since we will be active during our winter programs gloves/mittens with liners that can be removed in case you start to sweat work best. Snow Boots A snow boot is a boot designed for use in the snow, as the name suggests. However, a snow boot is also designed to be used in wet conditions, too. The reason snow boots excel in these conditions is due to their design. A good pair of snow boots generally has a rubber bottom providing 100% waterproof protection. The upper part of a snow boot will be either made of leather, rubber or a mix of leather and nylon. The upper part of a snow boot will frequently extend well above the ankle. The reason for this is that snow boots generally have a built-in snow gator of some kind. The snow gator closes the space between your lower leg and the opening of the boot thus preventing snow from falling down inside the boot when you happen to be wandering through deep snow. A snow boot is designed to provide warmth and protection of the foot in really nasty weather. However, if the proper sock combination is not worn in a snow boot, the foot itself can become

rather wet due to the inability of the foot perspiration to escape the lower rubber shell of the boot. KLONDIKE DERBY Saturday, January 20th, 2018 Rock Hill Camp Stations First Aid The Dining Hall will be First Aid Headquarters. A nurse will be on duty all day. HEADQUARTERS FORT YUKON Each patrol leader and assistant patrol leader check in at Headquarters with clipboard and pencil. Individual girls or Juliettes check in at Headquarters and join up with other girls to form a patrol. Activity: issue Passport give patrol leader a map show girls starting point give patrols order to visit stations pick up garage bag. Note: Girls should go around to the stations by themselves. Any adult helping at a station is 50% off the patrols score. Each troop MUST provide two leaders to help out at the event. Individual girls must be accompanied by an adult who also will be asked to help. Adults should dress properly for outdoor winter weather. Adults will be at the stations and positioned around the camp to assist the Mayors and the girls with any problems (not helping with testing skills at the stations). There should be enough adults so that we can rotate them and give each adult some time to warm up in the dining hall. Coffee and hot chocolate are available for adult helpers all day. 1.

For the Klondike Survival Derby Each Team Must Have a Sled to Carry Their Teams Gear There are directions on line about how to make an official Klondike Derby sled. The team sleds will not be part of the judging so an official Klondike Derby sled is not

needed. All that matters is that your team has a sled that will carry the mandatory gear. Below are pictures of homemade sleds of all types which we found online. The secret is building a sled with balance (wont tip over when full) with lines long enough so EVERYONE can help pull. Sleds as simple as a few milk crates attached to a pair of skis have worked well in the past. The teams would fill the crates with equipment and then attach large/long supplies to the side of the crates with bungee cords. The key is to pack the sled so all of the equipment can easily be taken on and off when needed. There is much information on line about making a homemade sled. I have included a picture of a true Klondike Derby Sled (which is part of the competition with the Boy Scouts). Ask around; maybe a Boy Scout troop in your area will loan you a sled. http://builtbykids.com/sneak-peek-our-diy-ski-sled/ Above Boy Scout Klondike Derby Sled 2.
