Six camping badges that empower girls through outdoor adventures

From Girl Scouts of the USA

It’s once again time for your girl to check her outdoor gear, restock her daypack, and get ready to spend more time in the great outdoors—like a Girl Scout! Whether she’s having camping adventures with her troop at Girl Scout camp, visiting a National Parkwith her family, or even pitching a tent in her own backyard, there are so many ways to have a Girl Scout adventure. 

Plus, she just might earn a Girl Scout badge or two… 

Daisy Buddy Camper badge: Camping is a great adventure to do outdoors. Here she’ll play in nature, eat outside, and sleep under the stars with her family, friends, or Girl Scout sisters. When she earns this badge, your Daisy will learn how to plan for a camping trip and properly pack her outdoor gear—so she’s always Girl Scout prepared! Earn this badge.

Brownie Cabin Camper badge: When your Brownie earns this badge, it’s a chance for her to spend time in nature and have fun with friends or family. She’ll dive deeper into planning her camping trip, learn how to use camping gear, prepare a delicious meal in the outdoors, and try her hand at a new camping skill! Earn this badge

Junior Eco Camper badge: We already know it’s easy being green when you’re a Girl Scout, and with this badge, your Junior will not only learn the Leave No Trace Seven Principles but also how to apply them! She’ll plan meals with the environment in mind, prepare a minimal-impact campsite, and go on a conservation hike. Having fun and protecting the environment at the same time? We’re in! Earn this badge

Cadette Primitive Camper badge: Primitive camping can be difficult, even for experienced campers, but we know your Girl Scout Cadette is up for the challenge! Through this badge, she’ll step up her outdoor skills—from planning a primitive camping adventure with her troop to gathering the gear she’ll need to succeed. Earn this badge.

Senior Adventure Camper badge: Girl Scouts are natural outdoor adventurers, and whether your Girl Scout Senior likes to kayak, mountain bike, or go rock climbing, why not combine her passion with an overnight camping trip to make the most of her outdoor experience? Adventure camping requires minimal equipment and gear because she’ll be active all day and possibly moving campsites. And thanks to this badge, your girl will know exactly how to prepare for the challenge. Earn this badge

Ambassador Survival Camper badge: Is your girl ready to test her camping skills with minimal supplies? Once she earns this badge, she will be! She’ll learn what it’s really like to go off the grid, survive off the land, and explore the great outdoors with her crew. And she’ll not only be prepared for future adventures outdoors but also be able to share her knowledge with others. Earn this badge.

TC04 Gypsum and TC06 Camp Jackson now more accessible!

Troop Camp is an amazing way to camp with your troop. If you missed registration for a Rendezvous, Troop Camps are also a great way to get to a camp with your troop and have a memorable outdoor experience. At Troop Camp, lodging, food, and programming is taken care of for you and your girls by the host site and/or volunteers running the camp.

Archery at Troop Camp

Here are recent changes with these two camps:

1. TC04 Gypsum Troop Camp: We’ve been working with our partner and they have changed our “back out” deadline to accommodate decision making for troops once they know what their cookie funds will be. We now have a little over a month more to get 50 girls registered for this camp (deadline for our goal has changed to April 27 from March 20). We hope that this new deadline gives troops more time to plan for and register for this camp!

2. TC06 Camp Jackson Troop Camp: Due to work with our partner, we have been able to lower the price to $160/girl Early Bird ($185 Regular Pricing) from $225/girl Early Bird ($250 Regular Pricing). We hope that this new price makes this camp more accessible to girls (we need 35 girls registered by July 10 to meet our goals for this camp).

Here is a list of all of the Troop Camps we will offer this summer. Register your girl now for a Troop Camp!

Register Now for a Troop Camping Experience!

This summer, we have expanded options for Troop Camp! Troop Camp is an amazing opportunity for you to camp with your Troop. The benefits of Troop Camp include:

  • Bonding and friendships the girls develop while camping away from home
  • Programming offered by either staff of the camp or volunteers
  • Meals planned and shopped for (sometimes you learn to cook your own as part of the activities with good instructors!)
  • You’ll sleep in cabins or tabins or teepees!
  • Safety Activity Checkpoint Ratio Adults do not pay to attend!
  • Each Troop must have one adult who has completed Overnight Training, and one who has First Aid and CPR in attendance.

Troop Camps are not only fun, but also a chance for leaders who might not have as much experience camping to get their girls outside. Leaders will learn tips and tricks from the staff and volunteer experts running the camps. Troops meet other troops and can later transition to camping on their own in the future.

Here are descriptions and highlights of the Troop Camps this summer. Pay attention to registration deadlines, as we often need a certain number of girls registered in order to make each camp a success. Register prior to April 30 to get the lowest pricing for Troop Camp! Each parent must register their daughter for Troop Camp here.

Women’s Week and Core Camp for troops offered in July 2015

Submitted by Penny “Pan” Roberts

Meadow Mountain Ranch near Allenspark, Colorado, will be the site for two very special events in the summer of 2015.

Women’s Week launched for the first time in the summer of 2014, and nearly 45 women from all over the country gathered for three days of fun, food and fellowship. There was such a resounding expression of support, enthusiasm and encouragement that it’s easy to offer it again. This event is open to any adult women, ages 18 and up, in any location, even out of state. It is not necessary to be registered Girl Scouts, just have a love of camping, the Colorado High Country and meeting and having fun with new and old friends. So bring your daughters, friends, neighbors, old camp buddies, GSCO Staff members, or just yourself whether or not you have ever attended camp, or always wanted to!

We most enjoyed playing like we were campers again – – – doing crafts, hiking, experiencing nature activities, singing all times of the day and night, archery, tai chi in the meadow, campfires and most especially, the outdoor cooking. The weather cooperated so we could cook out every single meal and we experimented with old favorites like stick cooking, one-pot meals, bean-hole cooking, and a special chili cook-off! There was even a Coffee Queen who made sure the brew was fresh and hot at all times of the day and evening.

Early morning hikes took us to the top of Vista Spur, a big circle tour acquainted and reacquainted all of us to the larger view of MMR and a few even ventured into Rocky Mountain National Park to see how the old familiar trails, bridges and natural settings had fared following the 2013 floods.

The History Group of GSCO launched a permanent history display in the Homestead House and we also reinstalled the Time Capsule near the lodge for another 25 years.

Core Camp for Troops is being offered for any Girl Scout troop who wishes to have a special experience in Colorado’s High Country. The Women’s Week and other alumnae volunteers will be available to help with program and coverage support if needed. Core Camp used to be offered every summer after resident camp was over, and this provided a time for troops to come up with their leaders, and have special programs offerings by experienced camp staff. We are offering two sessions for flexibility of scheduling, and Core Camp is open to all age groups Brownies through Ambassadors.

Anyone with questions or who needs information can contact the volunteers listed on the flyers at any time. We hope a lot of you can join us to make these events a huge success!

My best memory with my dad happened at Girl Scout camp

Capture

Submitted by Allison Ellington

I love Girl Scout camp! I was fortunate enough to sell cookies and earn enough to be able to attend Meadow Mountain Ranch several times. Each time, I had such an amazing experience. I did things I had never done before and enjoyed every moment. Some of those firsts included the ropes course, hiking to the top of Meadow Mountain, and sleeping under the stars in both tee pees and cabins. I also rode horses (my favorite’s name was Pantyhose), and hiked over to a creek that had a rock that was slick enough to be a slide into a pool! What an awesome experience I had with the fun-loving counselors (one named “Bananas”) and girls I met from all over Colorado. I went to MMR as an individual girl, with my troop, and once with my dad. I truly had a fantastic, life changing time every time I went to  Girl Scout camp!

One experience at Meadow Mountain Ranch stands out as one of my best memories ever- as in top 10 experiences of my life! So many of my Girl Scout experiences were with my mom, who was a troop leader and cookie mom for many years. I treasure those moments and will have to write about those another day. The memory I am talking about now is one I had with my dad.

We had the pleasure of going to a “Dad and Me” weekend at Meadow Mountain. My dad and I were so looking forward to the weekend because it was a Horse Wranglers weekend. He and I both loved horses and what a perfect time to spend some quality time together! We arrived and met all of the other campers. I took my dad down to the stables and was showing him around. One of the horses was laying down and my dad knew that something wasn’t right.  He talked with the stable manager and head wrangler. She was busy making sure the horses were taken care of and that all of the campers that weekend would have a great time. After some talking and investigating, they discovered that some of the hay the horse had eaten was moldy. That can be bad news for horses – serious stomach ache and could prove fatal if the horse continued to lay there and not move. So, the stable manager and my dad talked about what the best course of action was. I was right there learning about the care of horses and how serious this whole situation could be! I was in awe of my dad’s knowledge. They decided that the horse would have to stay in motion or he would just lay down again. Of course, my dad volunteered us to do that, they also decided to hire the NJ Mold removal Specialists to make a full inspection around the stable.

I have to admit, at first I was a little miffed at not being able to go back with the other dads and girls. They were doing some really great activities! So, for the next few hours and then some more the next day, my dad and I were in charge of walking this horse all around camp. Did I mention that it rained every afternoon in the mountains? Yep, we even walked through the rain! We walked and talked for hours about my dad’s time as a cowboy and hunting guide, enjoyed the peacefulness of the camp, and bonded. I learned so much about the care of horses and my dad’s own experiences in his life. That time was truly priceless! I couldn’t believe that we had saved the horse’s life. That was very impactful for such a little girl.  It may not have been the weekend with my dad that I was expecting, but it turned out to be so much better! Little did I know how much spending that time with my dad would resonate with me my throughout my life. I learned about horses, my dad, and that sometimes it’s ok to vary from the plans you’ve made. You never know what you may learn by taking a different path! Thank you Girl Scouts and Meadow Mountain Ranch for making such a difference in the lives of girls and their families. I can definitely see the difference they have made in my life!

Girl Scouts’ memory honored with special high adventure gift for Meadow Mountain Ranch

IMG_1060
View more photos of the check presentation 

Since the fall of 2012,  39 Girl Scout teenagers of GECCCO (Girls Enjoying Camping, Canoeing and Cycling Outdoors) Troop 71106 from Northern Colorado (Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor and Greeley) have been working on a special fundraising effort for their beloved Meadow Mountain Ranch (MMR) Girl Scout camp near Allenspark.

In 2011 this troop lost a cherished member of their group, Taite Pugh of Loveland. Taite had special needs and epilepsy and died unexpectedly. While in Girl Scouts, one of Taite’s favorite activities was zip lining, which she did on an international trip to Costa Rica. She also loved camping with her troop at MMR. And after learning MMR’s future plans of being a high adventure camp for girls, with a zip line being one of the wish list camp features, the girls knew they needed to help with the fundraising efforts and name the zip line to honor the memory of Taite.

On Thursday, March 28th, the troop made their first fundraising milestone, presenting a check to Girl Scouts of Colorado’s CEO, Stephanie Foote, for $10,000 at a Fort Collins Service Center ceremony.

“We are really touched that the GECCCOs decided to keep her memory going through this project,” said Taite’s mother, Cheryl, who shed tears of pride along with her husband and Taite’s father, Mark, at the March 28th ceremony. “Taite left an impression on these girls. They always were good about including her. Girl Scouts opened many new doors. And the trip to Costa Rica was a trip of a lifetime.”

Troop 71106 needs to raise $70,000 for the project, so fundraising efforts are still ongoing. They have held fundraisers for this project, such as a pancake breakfast in the fall and selling bracelets. A part of all their fundraising efforts, including 2013 Cookie Program proceeds, also are dedicated to the zip line project. (The troop sold nearly 10,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies and is fundraising for travel adventures they are planning to Peru and Alaska, to name a few.) Additionally, the troop is in the process of researching and applying for community grants.

“We hope this project inspires other troops to do community service,” said one of the troop members, Krista Beucler, who also commented that the troop is learning a lot through this project.

Once Taite fell in love with zip lining in Costa Rica she was always the first in line pointing and saying “up, up.” The troop hopes to help more children like Taite with special needs and disabilities find a love for zip lining by starting an annual day for them on this new zip line.

“We really can’t wait to complete the project. The project will make a difference for thousands and thousands of Girl Scouts,” said Sarah Bales, another member of the troop.

For more information on the MMR zip line project and how you can make a contribution, contact Elizabeth Winn at 970-319-3037 or elizabeth.winn@gscolorado.org.

Fox 31 Denver covered this event and aired a story on their morning show on Friday, March 29th. The Fort Collins Coloradoan newspaper also ran a short article and photo in their April 4th edition.
