Sailing and Paddling Day for older girls at Cherry Creek Reservoir

Submitted by Kristy Miller

Metro Denver


Come join Troop 972 on July 25, 2019 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. for Sailing and Paddling Day, an older girl event (Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors), which will include sailing, kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding at Cherry Creek Reservoir. Bring a sack lunch, water bottle, closed-toed water shoes, sunscreen, towel. If you have your own life jacket, please feel free to bring it. Otherwise, one will be provided for you.

This is not a money earning activity. The total goes towards putting on the event. The cost is $65 per girl for the day. Although this is not inexpensive, the research I have done in trying to set this up for my own troop backs this up as a good deal. I hope the girls can have an enjoyable day on the water and spend some time getting to know each other.

We can take up to 10 more girls in addition to my five rising Ambassadors, but I need RSVP’s by July 11 to ensure that we have the proper amount of staff. If you have any questions, please feel free to call (860) 593 – 6868 or e-mail (kristy@miller-rascals.net) me. Looking forward to see you there!

In a place like Colorado, it seems like we are blessed with endless opportunities for outdoor adventure. One thing that is rare though, is chances for aquatic experiences. This summer, GSCO continues the tradition of offering high quality boating camps for a truly unique Colorado water adventure!

Are you new to boating? Or maybe you’re an old pro but can’t decide on a favorite specialty? Then the Boating Sampler camp from July 25th– 29th is for you! In this camp, campers get to try out a different boating specialty each day to get a taste of everything. Campers will rotate between canoeing, kayaking, sail boating, windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding- all taught by certified instructors and on the beautiful Soda Lake in Bear Creek Lake Park in Morrison. When not learning new boating skills, there will be plenty of time to splash around under the sun and enjoy the clue waters of this amazing area!

If you’re a more experienced boater, or if you want to become an expert in your favorite type of boating, consider signing up for boating specialty camp from June 20th-24th! In this camp, participants will spend the whole week receiving in depth instruction in their specialty of choice: canoeing, kayaking, sailing boating, or standup paddle boarding/ windsurfing.
