Good afternoon, blog readers!
This afternoon is a bit cool and rainy; but there are still a lot of great things going on at camp!
Last evening before dinner, I had SO much fun with the core camp Brownies that are here to make all kinds of crazy camp food! Yesterday they made edible campfires followed up with an epic tin-can ice cream session with me before dinner!
We made sure we had the equipment and the ingredients and I secured their taping. I added the rock salt. Then the girls measured, poured, duct taped, shook/pushed/bowled/kicked/danced/rolled it down the hill/giggled/laughed, and then they helped undo the tape. 6 year olds can do more than you think. #girlscouts#summercamp
Today, they will be making “worms & dirt” with me before they leave…myself and their leaders convinced them that we are using actual worms and actual dirt. Not, just gummy worms, pudding, and crushed up Oreos. 🙂 🙂
Those Brownies along with the Tack & Trails core campers will be checking out the archery range this morning as well. We are hoping the rain lets up a bit more so that the Tack & Trails girls can ride and the Brownies can also go swimming. We don’t want anyone to be too cold!
The rest of our campers will be doing a lot of arts & crafts and games today-patiently waiting for the rain to go away. 🙂
