HOW YOU CAN HELP...
BICO has no paid staff and therefore depends on the time and dedication of volunteers. New volunteers are welcome to participate in scheduled group outings and are invited to attend BICO planning meetings, generally held every other month.
Once comfortable with the group, volunteers are encouraged to become Certified ICO Leaders, enabling them to plan and lead their own outings. To be certified, a volunteer must be a Sierra Cub member, pass a routine background check, and participate in ICO leadership training. Additionally, BICO sponsors First Aid and CPR training for its leaders.
Our next Outdoor Leadership Training 101 and CPR First Aid will be held at Blackburn Cabin in Harper's Ferry the weekend of November 16th, 17th and 18th. Please email Nicole Veltre-Luton at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot.
Contact the BICO Chair for details.
BICO outings are provided at no-cost to our youth particpants.
As a non-profit organization, BICO accepts both monetary and in-kind donations. Money is used to fund group outings as well as leadership training initiatives. Outing costs generally include transportation, entry fees, food and supplies. BICO gladly accepts outings gear (e.g. camping equipment, tents, backpacks, etc.) and clothing (warm clothes, gloves, socks, etc.).
