Girl Scouts can Knot wait to camp!

As some of you may know I lead a Girl Scouts Teenage Camping competition team called BOROTREC for teenagers from two cities.

In the month of April we focused on tying Knots, which is a session in the competition.  Our 2 divisions tie 6 different knots, the first division tie knots relevant to camping (bowline, clovehitch, tautline) and the division 2 tie knots related more to climbing and boating (prusik, sheetbend, figure 8 loop).

I have to brag about how awesome the team did.  Considering they learned 6 knots in 2 hours, they were confidence enough to pick one they believe they could do flawlessly and then mock compete.  So we had them do a relay race, similar to what would happen during comeptition.

The first heat they did in 1 min 35 seconds!  The second and third heats they did over 3 mins. Seriously they did great. Can’t wait to see how they do during competition.

So if you’re interested in trying a new skill, look these knots up using http://www.netknots.com.

Have a Magical day!
