Lamont troop 507 goes camping!

Post by: Lily Cortes

[break]

Lamont Girl Scout troop 507  went camping in July to Lopez Lake in Arroyo Grande. They used their proceeds from the Girl Scout cookie sale. The first day they set up their tents, made a bonfire and cooked  delicious s’mores. While on the trip the girls learned how to fish, went to a local water slide park, sang songs by the campfire and saw many deer and wild turkeys. They went to the Bee’s Knees show and learned about the different types of bees, and why they are important to our environment.  The weather was wonderful  and the girls can’t wait to go camping next year. It was a great life experience. They thank everyone who made this possible by buying Girl Scout cookies. 10 girls went on the camping trip –  Aalijah , Alexis, Jacquelyn , Monique , Daisy , Vanessa, Jasmin, Victoria , Carolina,  and Katelynn.

Girls have fun at Twilight Camp

Service Unit 30 hosted a Twilight Camp June 18 – 21 from 6:00pm to 8:45PM at the Fresno Sportsmen’s Club. Twilight Camp is where girls get an introduction to the things that have made Girl Scouting such a strong, safe, fun tradition.

Camp opened each night with a flag ceremony followed by  Service Unit 30′s world famous relays. The girls then broke into small groups. Each day’s activities revolved around Girl Scout traditions during camp. Activities included things like: making  lemmi sticks, roasting smores, singing songs, and they made situpons. They also played a game called “Lick It & Stick It” where the girls licked marshmellows and stuck them to their face.  After that, they ran with them on to see who could make it without the marshmellows falling off.  it was quite a site!!!  Thursday night they held a Rededication Ceremony for all Girl Scouts. Girls made new friends, saw many of their old ones, and learn while they are having fun.
