Centennial Campfire celebration at Meadow Mountain Ranch

More than 200 Girl Scouts and Girl Scout supporters gathered on Sunday, August 27, 2017 at Meadow Mountain Ranch to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting in Colorado at the last in a series of Centennial Campfire celebrations. MMR is a Girl Scouts of Colorado property located next to Rocky Mountain National Park in Allenspark. Girls and families enjoyed s’mores by the fire, a tour of the property, and a performance by the Songbirds Girl Scout Choir. A Girl Scout history display and mobile Girl Scout shop attracted attention in the main lodge.

All Girl Scouts who attended also received a free, fun patch honoring 100 years of Girl Scouting in Colorado. The first Girl Scout troop in Colorado got started in 1917 in the Colorado Springs area.
