Girl Scout Community Campout
The Girl Planning Board for our Klein Trails Community Campout chose the theme, “Honey, I Shrunk the Girl Scouts.” These hardworking scouts ranged from Brownies to Cadettes (third graders to eighth graders for you laymen out there). They created life-sized games based on classical board games and beloved video games.
Some examples include:
The girls planned many camp traditions as part of the activities as well:
We were lucky enough to get the Green Starlettes, the Girl Scout dance squad to come out and show our girls some fun moves.
Our favorite experienced Girl Scout turned 29 again during our adventure. We proudly celebrated with her. Happy Birthday, Rusty!
Overall, the event left the girls exhausted and exhilarated. We totaled almost 500 people at camp! That’s an incredible feat which could not have been pulled off without the group of amazing volunteers our community is lucky to have! Special Thanks to Lance for leading fishing and Dennis for leading archery and Cat for handling First Aid. Susan and her staff rocked the kitchen preparing food for the entire camp ALL weekend. Shelley kept us organized and took care of all the paperwork (which was quite hefty considering all the people involved). Phadrea designed and ordered the shirts, patches, and cups and dealt with check in and check out. Kelly B. kept all hundred or so of the parent volunteers on task for the activities as well as verifying completed troop kapers. Jenna helped organize the schedule and sleeping arrangements for camp. Cherly kept us informed and took notes at all the meetings. Nancy helped with the Girl Planning Board. These ladies also had girls on the Girl Planning Board which means they, along with a couple other parents, helped their scouts bring their game ideas to life. Altogether quite a group!
I want to add a personal “thank you” to Carrie for keeping our troop on task for the weekend leaving me to handle other responsibilities. You are a super star!!!
I can’t wait til the next one!
