Troop Events/Projects: October 2008 Archives


Hi everyone! Service Unit 807 from North Mobile county held its annual Camporee this past weekend at Scoutshire Woods. My troop planned and organized the whole event. It was awesome! Our theme was "Wild West Weekend."  We opened Friday night with a barn dance where we learned square dancing and line dancing. Saturday we enjoyed canoeing, archery, and horseback riding. We also had a "Lost Gold Mine" treasure hunt, and a terrific barbeque dinner!

Since all the girls in my troop will graduate from high school this year, this was our last camporee, so we wanted to make it a good one. It was a lot of work, but seeing all the little (and big) smiling faces made it all worthwhile. Over 120 girls and adults attended, and everyone agreed it was the best camporee ever!

Here are the girls from Junior Troop 8309 enjoying Camporee!Thumbnail image for DSC_3882.jpg

Troop 9349 from Enterprise, Alabama spent months making quilts to present to Ft. Ruckers soldiers who have served overseas as part of their Bronze/Silver Award Projects.  Working with a local quilt shop, they learned sewing and quilting skills, had lots of fun, and took pride in creating a project from planning to completion.  They were part of a special ceremony to present quilts to the soldiers -- one of whom was the father of one of the quilting Girl Scouts!

They were even featured on local television.  Here is the link to the broadcast.  Check it out!
