Hi, my name is Brittany. I took a trip to Ponytails Camp. The first day, I unpacked then I met the people who were in my cabin. The next day, we saw the horses and they were pretty. Their names were Country, April, Sam, Centry, and Boogie. 

 

I had a fun time at resident camp, but I also had a lot of fun at Camporee. It was cold at camp while I was there, but we did a bunch of cool stuff.  We did a scavenger hunt, and a few things went wrong but it was ok! At the end of the scavenger hunt we had some patches. It was awesome. Go Girl Scouts!

Girl Scout Press Reps are girls across the council who apply to represent Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama. After interviewing and training for their positions, girls are ready for the experience of girl-led public relations for the council.  Throughout the membership year, Press Reps will write articles on the Girl Blog.  We hope you enjoy getting to know each of them.  

 

My name is Sara Ann and I have been a Girl Scout for 8 years now! Girl Scouts is a fun and adventurous experience! You get to do all sorts of things, from camping to selling cookies; it is awesome!  After you sell all the cookies, you and your troop can pick what to do with the money you got! I remember my troop went to Wild Adventure, an amusement park in Valdosta, Georgia. We have gone to Sea World and spent the night with the dolphins! But you could also do little things like spend the night in your own backyard -- that's fun too! Your troop can also earn badges that can be helpful and a fun experience at the same time!

 

Each year in Girl Scouts we go to Camporee! Camporee is an awesome weekend where we all go to Scoutshire Woods (a campground for Girl Scouts) and have a wonderful time! We usually have a certain theme every year. Then we do amazing crafts and games to go along with the theme! My favorite thing about Girl Scouts is going camping a lot! Camping is fun, you can go with just your troop or like Camporee and go with many others! Each camping trip has its own adventure! Camping is a great experience to get out and enjoy being with your buddies! When we go camping there are rules, but we have rules to keep us safe!

 

Girl Scouts is also fun when you meet new friends! I think making friends is a great way to express yourself with others! In Girl Scouts you can learn some crazy songs and some very heartwarming songs. Being a Girl Scout is just amazing.  I could never tell you how much we do, so come be a Girl Scout and enjoy this great adventure for yourself!

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
