Fall & Winter Camping Tips for Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts are excited for this time of the year! With the cooler months here, many Girl Scout troops are preparing for Fall & Winter camping excursions. Here are some tips for Fall & Winter Camping:
- Certifications & Planning Committee – Adult leaders and parent attending the camp outs will need to be certified and background approved. Creating a planning committee will help spread the “load” of planning for the girls’ outing.
- Packing Lists – Create a packing list for the girls and parents ahead of time. Include needed instructions for the camping excursion to prepare the parents ahead of time. Create a packing list for the leaders as well, including food items, tents, crafts supplies, and miscellaneous needed items.
- Back up activities – Having back up activities is important for a variety of reasons including weather changes, the need of additional activities, unforeseeable change of plans, and so forth.
- Kaper Charts – Create a camping kaper chart which includes duties for all the girls. Parents can also help with other duties as well. This will continue to teach the girls responsibility while having fun!
Don’t forget the all time camping favorite for Girl Scouts – making Campfire Smores! Have fun with the girls and please let us know of your unique ideas related to Fall & Winter Camping with Girl Scouts!
Girl Scout Fun is getting a new theme, a revamp, and new content coming up!
Busy Life with Girl Scouts
Life has been very busy at our home, especially with leading Girl Scouts for the past eight years in our area, plus two years prior experience. It has been a wonderful experience and I have so much to share with you coming in the months ahead.
Do you like our new theme?
First, Girl Scout Fun has a new WordPress theme. It is much easier to read and looks great, at least in my opinion. Hope you like it better!
Revising the Old & Bringing the New
Next, I will be going through all the articles on site. This will allow me to make edits, add new ideas to existing content, and eventually add photos to the existing blog posts. I will also be working on adding new content for the New Year which is not very far away.
2018 is Nearly Here!
Can you believe it? I am amazed and can hardly believe Christmas is only a little over ten weeks away! Then, 2018 will be here in the midst of us!
I appreciate your patience of my being missing in action from blogging! I have been helping many, many girls in scouts over the past few years. Our troops and service unit kept growing and growing and growing!
Thanks for stopping by! Keep your eyes out for some new ideas, pics, and a whole lot more!
