Troop 70720 went for a weekend stay at Meadow Mountain Ranch. We borrowed snowshoes from GSCO, packed our sleds and winter gear, and went away for some fun! For most of the girls, this was their first time snowshoeing. Everyone had a great time!
Troop 70720 participated in a fun troop/girl bonding activity, a scavenger hunt! One of the leaders pre-planned some items and places to find or take pictures of and riddles to solve. It was a great afternoon and a clever way to spend some time together.
The girls of Troop 70720 had a fun evening. They wanted to do a “Chopped”-style competition. There were three teams. Two teams cooked while the third team made a trophy for the winner of each course. Every girl got a chance to make two different items. It was fun seeing their creativity in the food and the trophy that they made.
Troop 1418 of Cheyenne, Wyoming assisted in laying wreaths on Saturday, December 15, 2018, alongside the Civil Air Patrol. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to remember, honor, and teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 states, at sea, and abroad.
Amy Jo Martinson lives in Fort Collins and helps with the troop in Cheyenne, Wyoming on the F.E. Warren Air Force Base. They are Girl Scout Daisies to Seniors.
Girls from Troop 70720 decided at their planning meeting this year that they wanted to learn the life skill of some self defense techniques. Last week, they learned many skills and techniques on how to handle or deal with various situations. Thanks to Krav Maga studio for teaching a great class!
Some of the girls from Troop 70720 gave a few hours of their time the day before Thanksgiving to volunteer at our local food bank. It is one of our regular service projects. It’s a great way to give back to our local community.
A few Girl Scouts from Service Unit 747 went out in the chilly Sunday weather to hike at Hewlett Gulch. Since it ended up being all older girls, they decided to do the entire trail. They hiked eight miles altogether! The next service unit hike is not until April, but be on look out for it! We hope to have more girls join in next time.
Participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program can pay off. Earlier this month, girls from Troop 70720 got to go to Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs because of all their hard work in February and March of 2018. They had to wait awhile, but it was worth it. It was a blast with their indoor water park and various activities.
