Girl Scouts is all about Camping right?

The last few weeks my life has been 95% Girl Scout Camping!  I’ve been doing leader trainings, MD & J have been doing good/bad camper to help scouts learn how to pack, planning meetings, tent prep training, food and supply shopping, event  organizing and stressing!  All of this for our biannual City Girl Scout Camporee schedule for June 7-9.  It’s been a long few weeks of planning but this weekend it’s finally here!  15 Girl Scout troops in ages of 5-18 are planning for an amazing weekend of songs, campfires, S’Mores and adventure and of course the weather says rain, actually it says Tropical Storm Andrea!!  This year’s theme is Reality TV, you know Cupcake Wars, Project Runway, Nickelodeon’s Double Dare and Minute to Win it, with an entire camp game of Amazing Race.

I posted a few weeks ago my troop putting up their jumbo tent, but here’s what our tent looked like going up. Camporee - tents

Scary!  We had a total of 5 tents for the 11 girls and 2 adults.  Quite a site!.  The Scouts have asked to make pizza in a skillet over the fire – YES you can do this without failing.  Let’s just hope we’re successful.  Just to be on the safe side a co leader’s husband and Mr. Don will be making Beef Stew in dutch ovens!  dinnerYUM!  Here we are cooking Smores smores

So if you hadn’t heard last Friday Tropical Storm Andrea hit us and turned our camp into this.

Yes that’s a road that leads to a field on the right!  It was a raging river!  We did still have Camporee!  We’re Girl Scouts.

Here we are at Cupcake Wars and Craft Wars!

Well even though they woke me up at 4:30am, it was still a GREAT event!  I’d go camping with these girls in a heart beat!!

My message to you is Get outdoors! Let nature inspire you! Here’s a centerpiece one of my girls made.centerpiece

Now I have to clean out my breezeway so I can get downstairs to my Craft Cave!

 

Have a Magical Day!
