My week at Kamp Kiwanis was great! My friends and I enjoyed so many fun activities like arts and crafts, boating, nature, archery, swimming, singing camp songs, and banana boating. My favorite activities were probably boating, archery, and banana boating.  It's hard to choose which activities were my favorites because I enjoyed them all.

The session I signed up for at camp was called Night Owls. We got to stay up later than all of the other campers doing fun night activities.  We went night swimming, hiking in the dark, and stargazing. I really liked going night swimming. It was great!

While at camp, my group completed some badge work. We worked on the Cadette Girl Scout Way badge. One of the requirements was to throw a party for an adult Girl Scout volunteer. We worked hard to throw a surprise party for Bossy, the camp director. It was really fun! We planned activities for all of the other girls to do and even baked cookies. The party was awesome!

Overall, my stay at Kamp Kiwanis was great! I made new friends while doing some of my favorite outdoor activities. We all had so much fun and I can't wait to go back next year!

Hi! My name is Maxine and I'm a Senior Girl Scout. Being in Girl Scouts has given me many opportunities to get involved in my community and help others. In addition to this, it has caused me to develop a desire to participate in more of these activities. From preparing Christmas gifts for a nursing home to teaching 100 girls a dance I made up, I have learned that helping others is what being a Girl Scout is all about! Nothing gives you that fuzzy feeling inside like seeing the smile on someone's face and knowing that you helped make their day.

Girl Scouts has not only inspired me to join other groups that take part in community service through my school and church, but also to encourage younger girls to take part in Girl Scouts activities. I hope that one day they will share their experiences with other girls and get them excited about volunteering as well. This common desire to better our communities has been evident since the beginning of Girl Scouts, and I'm proud to be a part of the millions of girls around the world that share the love of giving back to them. Maybe in the future, if everyone takes part in helping out in our communities, the world will be a much better place!

Hey guys, it's Tori. 

I just got back from horse camp and it was so much fun! 

My horse's name was Quincy. He is a good horse and a big one, too. First we learned the basics: how to go and stop. Then we learned harder things like how to saddle and trot.  Then we had to clean the stables! That was really hard. The next day we had to wake up early to clean the stables, feed the horses and groom them.  And, then we had to saddle them. 

On the last day of horse camp we got to go on a tour of the ring and on the trail. The trail was long and so much fun! It was a real treat for us and the horses.  It made us all very happy.  I like being a Girl Scout and learning new things! We even got to cook a hobo meal at our campsite. You should go to camp to learn new things too! It is fun!
