Girl Scouts of Colorado is collaborating with community leaders in the Red Feather Lakes area to help local residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Magic Sky Ranch property is being used to sort shipments of food that are then being distributed to those struggling to feed themselves. A small group of volunteers has been unloading and repacking bulk items. Afterwards, the parcels are taken to Morning Star Church for distribution. 1¼tons of food is expected to be distributed on Friday, April 3, 2020.
This effort is a collaboration with North 40 Mountain Alliance, Larimer County Office on Aging, Larimer County Partnership for Age Friendly Communities, Senior Access Points, Morning Star Community Church, Chapel in the Pines, Red Feather Lakes Library, Gordon Creek Farm, DaLonna Mae’s Cafe, Food Bank for Larimer County, and many individual donors. The food is going to families with children, the elderly, people in the service industries who have lost their livelihood, and many others who have been put in distress due this crisis.
A couple of the girls from Troop 70720, along with one of their grandparents, spent the day working on the Homestead Trail at Magic Sky Ranch. The troop will be back with more girls later this fall. This group got a nice start though. The troop really loves Magic Sky and cares about trying to do some upkeep on one of the trails they have loved using for the last nine years.
Juniors from Troop 76048 in Loveland/Fort Collins used their cookie earnings for a campout at Magic Sky Ranch and horseback riding at Sundance Trail Ranch. They hiked, had s’mores, played wolf pack on the rocks, and had the entire Magic Sky Ranch to themselves!

Spend a weekend with us at Magic Sky Ranch and experience one of Colorado’s most popular outdoor activities: rock climbing or trail running/ hiking! You will choose one activity to focus on and will spend the weekend training, managing equipment, building skills, and accomplishing goals in trail running or climbing. Climbers will belay each other up outdoor rock walls, rappel down cliffs, and learn about climbing knots, gear, and equipment. Trail Runners will plan their own routes, and race through the forest while learning outdoor survival skills. Rock Climbers will work on the NEW “Climbing Adventure” badge and trail runners will work on the NEW “Trail Adventure” badge.
Girl Scouts participated in a team building troop camp at Magic Sky Ranch July 13 and 14, 2019. It was the first time that Girl Scouts have used the high ropes course this summer. In addition to the high ropes course, girls also participated in two different team building challenge rotations, a guided nature hike led by a Leave No Trace master educator, and archery.

Girls in Troop 70720 spent the weekend at Magic Sky Ranch, camping at Old Lodge. We did some hiking on Old Homestead Trail. We enjoyed games, s’mores, scary stories, a talent show, rock climbing, and more. We love this property and have been going there for eight years.
Troop 70720 spent the weekend enjoying Magic Sky Ranch and spending some time in the great outdoors. Girls finished up working on their “Primitive Camping” badge, which they started in May. We love going up there and have been doing it since girls were second year Daisies.
Girls did all the set up, most of the year down, and a lot of the cooking and preparation this year. Love seeing them progress and get more independent every year.
Join Troop 1359 for an adventure filled weekend at Magic Sky July 20 – 22, 2018 with Max from Where the Wild Things Are, The Little Prince, Merida, and many more. The stories are just the start to the stories and camp memories we will make this weekend because the best stories are those we live ourselves.
