Grayson County’s five Girl Scout Troops went camping at Camp Pennyroyal in Daviess County on May 13 and 14.
Archery class got the girls moving in the chilly weather. Several girls showed skills they learned in school and at home by hitting the bullseye.
Some Girl Scout principles were reinforced at camp such as using resources wisely. The girls painted new watering cans made from laundry detergent bottles.
With swimming and kayaking canceled due to weather, the girls decorated t-shirts with crayons and sandpaper and made beaded tassels that outline the Girl Scout Law for their backpacks.
The girls made their own supper pizzas on the first night, made S’mores in the fireplace, and roasted hot dogs to make for a great day, working together to leave the camp better than they found it on Saturday as the Girl Scouts always do.
Hiking in the woods and finding hidden treasure boxes left by previous Girl Scout Troops and trading items for the next Treasure Hunters ended the weekend.
A huge thanks to Community Supporters Dairy Queen, Kevin Skaggs, Corey and Krista Salsman, Jeff Hester and David Fulkerson for the donations of food and supplies. A great big thanks to the Troop Leaders for driving, spending the night, working so hard to make it a fun weekend adventure.
