Camp Christmas at Stanley Marketplace

Girl Scouts, families, and friends are invited to an over-the-top holiday extravaganza at The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace in Aurora. Exclusive Girl Scout discounted tickets available: $10 on December 19 and $15 from December 20 – January 5. Available by phone only: (303) 446-4829.

Stanley Marketplace will be transformed by an over-the-top indoor immersive installation. Camp Christmas is Denver’s newest holiday experience, where yuletide traditions of the past and present get merrily mashed together in a massive 10,000-square-foot wonderland. Come in from the cold with your whole family and get wrapped in the ooey-gooey, odd, and sweet rituals that have brought light to the darkness of winter for thousands of years.

Ticket alert: Camp Christmas has been selling out, especially on weekends and school holidays. Because tickets for each time slot are limited, we highly encourage purchasing tickets in advance.

More than 20 G.I.R.L.s (go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders) from central Colorado Springs went caroling at Union Printers Home on Saturday, December 12, 2018.

Girls from different troops and service units made new friends in sister Girl Scouts and residents of the facility as they caroled up and down the historic halls. The 126-year-old building was brightened with holiday crafts, songs, and smiles.

Aurora

The Jays Service Unit in Aurora celebrated the holidays with a party and caroling at the Garden Plaza of Aurora Senior Living Center on Sunday, December 11. Garden Plaza gives the Jays SU free meeting space for our monthly Service Unit meetings. We were excited to be able to get to know some of the residents and strengthen this community partnership.

More than 30 Girl Scouts did crafts and played holiday games with the residents of the independent living center before going to the assisted living center to sing carols for the residents that could not attend the party.

It was wonderful to see members of different generations connect and to share some holiday joy!
