I just wanted to share some pictures from my daughter’s first day of Girl Scout Camp. Lily has been counting down for weeks! This year, she is doing a day camp and is already plotting for overnight camp as a Brownie. Lily woke up at 5 in the morning and packed up all of the items on her list.

My name is Shay and I manage the Northern Colorado regions of Play-Well TEKnologies. We run LEGO engineering programs for kids ages 5-12. A new initiative we have taken on over the past couple of years has been a girl powered engineering programming which focuses on providing supportive environments for young girls to learn about STEM fields and explore their interests. In addition to our girl powered LEGO engineering programs, we have worked with many Girl Scout troops all over Colorado to help troops earn badges in mechanical engineering, STEM, and robotics! If you are interested in hosting a badge workshop with Play-Well, please contact shay@play-well.org.For more information, go to www.play-well.org.

We have a special girl powered LEGO engineering camp coming up in Fort Collins at the Foothills Activity Center! We hope your girls will join us for a great week of female-led building. The camp is July 15 – 18, 2019 from 9 a.m. – noon and is for ages 5-7 and 1 – 4 p.m. is for ages 8-12. Interested families can sign up through the City of Fort Collins Recreator.  Register by July 8!

Submitted by Kirsten Allison

Westminster

Register your girl for “Science in the Summer” day camp, and she will join other Girl Scouts entering grades 1-5 for a week of fun and learning. Each day, girls will explore a different theme of science including dinosaurs, oceans, weather, and plant science. Camp will be held in a park in Westminster from June 3 – June 7, 2019.

Visiting science experts will make engaging presentations, including a special presentation on sea turtles and bird migration. Our days will include a lot of hands-on activities, so the girls are able to experiment with the information they learn.

In addition to fun science activities, your girl will have the opportunity to learn Girl Scout cooking skills. We’ll be making a hot meal for three of the camp days, and all girls will participate in meal preparation.

This fun week will be rounded out by some traditional Girl Scout fun, including songs and games. Younger girls will be inspired by the older Girl Scouts working as Program Aides.

Get out and CAMP for summer 2019: Registration for Girl Scout Camp begins Jan. 17

Girl Scout Camp is a place for every girl to answer the call to adventure, grow in confidence, and discover the power she has to change the world! For summer 2019, your girl can hike to the top of a mountain, star in an all-camp skit, or steer a canoe. She’ll try new things, push herself, and embrace challenges.

Girl Scouts of Colorado has sessions designed for girls entering first grade through seniors in high school at both Sky High Ranch near Colorado Springs and Tomahawk Ranch southwest of Denver. Overnight camp sessions are 3 days, 6 days, or 2 weeks. Registration begins at 9 a.m. Jan. 17 on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website at girlscoutsofcolorado.org. Dozens of sessions and camps are available for summer 2019, including:

  • “Lone Rangers” at Tomahawk Ranch- Girls will learn about the barnyard and have a chance to feed, groom, and love our four-legged friends. They’ll also make crafts, master a line dance or two, roast s’mores around a campfire, learn to rope, and more!
  • “Oopy Goopy Science” at Sky High Ranch – Girls will learn how to launch pop and tea bag rockets, explode watermelons, and make fizzy lemonade to drink.
  • “Pioneers” at Tomahawk Ranch- Older girls will take a trip back to the 1800’s! They’ll cook over a fire and make jams and pies with fresh fruit. They’ll also learn to cure their own jerky, dehydrate fruits and vegetables, make cheese, bread, and butter.
  • “Camp Wondering Water” at Sky High Ranch – Older girls will learn how to survive at a primitive campsite and hone survival skills, such as water purification, orienteering, shelter building, and fire safety.

The entire summer camp schedule is posted on the Girl Scouts of Colorado website (http://www.camp.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/). Register early. Some sessions fill in just a few hours!
