Tales From Camp: Very Special Guests

Hi everyone,

We had a blast last week at Camp Menzies. Last session was Two of Us, where parents came with their campers to enjoy the camp experience together. For a lot of the girls, it was their first time at camp. They got to experience some great activities, such as Australian football, soccer, making dream catchers, bracelet making, wood burning, painting, and more! Sounds like fun, right?


More fantastic groups last week included Wonders of Water, Leaders in Action, Horse Lovers, S’mores and More, Talent Scout, Secret Garden, Special Agent, Camp Olympics, and Pixie Painters.

We also still had our Under Construction Girl Scouts. Did you see them on the news? Good Day Sacramento did a segment on our Under Construction program last Thursday, and CBS 13 aired a special segment about the importance of STEM and camp last night. Watch it here. We offer many STEM programs here at camp–the girls love it! And it was very exciting to have the news station at camp filming about this important topic.

Wednesday night we had our All Camp event. It was super fun! The Camper Council voted on a counselor fashion show. Counselors dressed up in silly outfits and walked our dining hall runway. Afterwards there were stations where the girls could get their hair braided, nails painted and where they could make jewelry. Of course we also had a dance floor! Thursday night we had our closing campfire. The weeks go by so fast up here at camp, but you know what they say… time flies when you’re having fun.

A special thank you to the parents who joined us last week for Two of Us, as well as Good Day’s Cambi Brown and Scott–we loved having you at camp!

Today we welcomed a new group of campers. Welcome to camp, Girl Scouts!

Until next time,
Rapunzel
