Girl Scout Troop 50292 of Kremmling met with Kevin Singel, author of the book “Finding Gold in Colorado,” and went gold panning. Kevin showed the girls some of his basic gold panning tools and shared a few different techniques to pan for gold. Each of the girls found a small piece of gold before they were done. It was an amazing experience, many thanks to Kevin!

Girl Scout Troop 50292 of Kremmling attended Troop Trek in Clark from June 7-9, 2019. The girls were part of a group of 98 girls from all over Colorado. They earned their “First Aid,” “Primitive Camping,” and “Cooking” badges, participated in flag ceremonies, and learned pocket knife skills, orienteering, and knot tying. The girls planned and cooked their own meals, did their own dishes, set up tents, and took care of their own gear. They also competed in a dessert making competition and won “Sailor Moon’s Favorite.” We had 11 girls attend: Darcy D., Kassidy T., Paige D., Kieryn T., Cora O., Isabella L., Suzzen H., Abigail W., Harmoni W., Addy P., and Taylah F. They had a lot of fun, and four of our girls were recognized for good deeds that had been noticed by adults: Suzzen H., Addy P., Cora O., and Harmoni W.
The girls had so much fun. I highly recommend this experience.
