Event information

SKGABC 2021 Spring Exchange May 10-16, 2021

May 10 - 16, 2021

Online and On-Water

Let's join together again as a guiding community and share some learning and joy in anticipation of the coming season.  Attend any virtual workshop you like for free and win prizes; or register formally, get on the water, and fulfill your OGT credits for 3 years.

Individual satellite "in-person" portions of the Exchange will be conducted with professionally appropriate COVID-19 protocol in place.  This blended virtual / in-person delivery is an adaptation to the times and is not intended to set a precedent - the SKGABC plans to return to our traditional model of awesome in-person weekend Exchanges as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
