Spaces still open for Costa Rica 2020

Submitted by Jody Clair

Pikes Peak

Colorado Springs

Hello, I am a 16 year leader and looking to fill six spaces for Girl Scouts. These prices will go up any day. The girl can be 6th grade-12th grade at travel time. Since it is summer, graduates may attend as a their senior trip. We will leave out of Denver. The dates are in flux until EF Tours sets us with another group. We are looking at the second and third week of June 2020. Please feel free to share with families, troops, and more! This does NOT have to be the whole troop. Individual Girl Scouts are welcome. Please email me at girlscoutjody@gmail.com and I will send you an itinerary and more information.

Register NOW for Women’s Week 2019 at Meadow Mountain Ranch

Meadow Mountain Ranch

Women’s Week at Meadow Mountain Ranch (MMR) is the most fun you can have at camp since you were 11-years-old! I promise! Even if you have never been to camp before you will “Make New Friends” (there’s me singing!) and do new things.  If you are a seasoned veteran of this or all or any other camps, I promise a unique mountain experience of fun and adventure of our own making.

Registration is now open for 2019 and we hope you can join us July 15 – 18.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for the flyer with all of the registration information. Camp cost is $200 per person and the deadline to register is June 20.

Besides a huge variety of activities possible, we always have great food, thanks to Susan Baker and her food service team who help us experiment with cooking in the out-of-doors.

If you have a favorite activity, craft, hike, song, etc., you’d like us to include in the time at camp, just let me know and we’ll get it scheduled.  If you can offer a special craft, music, ceremony, or other fun program, let me know that, too, and we’ll set it up for you.

All of MMR is open to us this year, including the Pinecrest Unit for the folks looking for a different view or a little more solitude.  The flyer below also mentions a variety of new offerings if interest is there.  Opportunities for service projects for the camp can be arranged as well.  Of course, if you are hoping for some true get-away time from your usual hectic lives, this is the opportunity.  Chill, rest, relax, play, enjoy.  Immerse yourself in the beauty and unique mountain environment.  Water, grass, trees, sky, flowers, rocks – – – even dirt if you’d like to play in it!

The event is open to any woman at least 18 years of age.  Some of the multi-generational teams who have come like moms and daughters (mine included), aunts, grand-daughters have had the best bonding time imaginable.  I’d highly recommend it.  Bring your old camp friends, bring your stressed-out co-workers, all are welcome and the more the merrier! Having just ladies there gives us a special liberating experience from most anything else in our lives today.  Sharing our huge variety of lives and experiences helps us all gain truly long-lasting perspective and lets us return home anxious for next summer already!

Gals have come from all over the country from Maine to Washington, including Arizona, California, Hawaii, Connecticut, Utah, Kansas, Texas, and many other states. The word is spreading about how much fun Women’s Week is and we’d love to have you join us.

Special needs can usually be accommodated easily. The camp is glorious and truly one of our favorite places on earth. My contact information is at the bottom of the flyer and I serve as director, registrar, and I’ll even do dishes when my patrol’s turn comes up!
