Hamp Hut: An amazing experience for our troop

Submitted by Shelby, Girl Scout Ambassador, Troop 177

Oklahoma City

Our Girl Scout troop stayed at Hamp Hut in Garden of The Gods for a week this summer and it was so fantastic for the girls!

We were thrilled to stay in the heart of the park where we could enjoy all the trails, horseback riding, and become Junior Rangers. We went to all the suggested attractions, including Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, where we got to feed the giraffes, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds, and so many more amazing places!

During our stay at Hamp Hut, we realized that there were some appliances that needed to be replaced. We couldn’t find a service project while we were in Colorado, so we decided to donate a new teapot and toaster instead.

Now, when another troop decides to come in and enjoy themselves, they have a toaster and teapot to enjoy as well! We really appreciate the hospitality of Girl Scouts of Colorado and we are honored to use part of our cookie money as thanks to them. This week was an amazing experience for our troop, and I’m so glad we had the opportunity to stay at this Girl Scout cabin.

We hope many other troops will come and enjoy it too!
