Brownie Troop 1133 overnights at Denver Zoo

20131006_BunkWiththeBeasts_0067

Submitted by Sara and Kristin
Centennial Troop 61133

On October 5th we had the wonderful opportunity to Bunk With the Beasts at the Denver Zoo! The whole trip was super cool and everyone had a great time.

Our tour guide, Maggie, was informative, sweet, patient, and fun. The girls had a private tour of the zoo at night, visited with a baby snow leopard, learned about the importance of enrichment and even played with some, used night vision goggles, and made a Shrinky Dink necklace.

We wrapped up the evening with some hot chocolate and popcorn and a visit from a beautiful bearded dragon and a very active tortoise.

In the morning they greeted us with another private tour with a trip to the commissary and a visit with a porcupine and two of our girls even got to feed him!

Overall, our first overnight as a troop was not only super fun but the girls demonstrated that they are in fact living by the Girl Scout Law. They were respectful, helpful, asked thoughtful questions, made connections to prior learning, were sisters to every Girl Scout, and giggled and whispered their way into the night.

We could not have been more proud.

They earned the Pets badge and a special Bunk With the Beasts fun patch and they are already thinking about their next overnight. Thank you Denver Zoo for putting on this awesome program!

At the end of the trip, the girls talked about how they’ve put their cookie money to good use: a big service project for a local preschool, a painting party at the Lone Tree Rec Center, new Journey books, membership dues  AND the Bunk with the Beasts overnight was mostly funded with cookie proceeds. Now the girls are even more excited to start selling cookies again in January!
