If you went by Pecan Park in New Territory on Saturday, January 21st, you might have taken a double take. It looked like Occupy New Territory but actually what it was an opportunity for younger Girl Scouts to learn all about camping before they head out to camp away from home.
Over 30 Brownies Girl Scouts and their leaders from Rainbow Stars Service Unit gathered in Pecan Park on a beautiful day in January to get their first exposure to camping the Girl Scout way. This event was for Brownie Girl Scout troops who were ready to discover all the marvelous things about camping without technically leaving home. Troops had the opportunity to connect with other troops while having a blast at learning about camp only a few minutes away from home.
The organizer of the event, Mrs. Minturn (leader of Troop 238) had this to say about the Brownie Overnight event, “This event has been a great opportunity for new Girl Scouts to learn about the great fun that girls can have. They share in the camaraderie that is such an important part of scouting and the older girls have an opportunity to shine in a leadership role. New leaders also get a chance to meet and network with fellow Brownie leaders and experienced leaders.”
