Dreamseeker SU had their encampment April 1 – 2, 2011. Saturday morning began with a hike up Picacho Peak. Back at camp we had a Super Star “Do Dad” hide several Geo Caches. The girls needed little direction….whipped out their cell phones, downloaded GPS Apps, and we off plugging in Longitude and Latitude marks. They were so excited about their new found skill that they were trying to convince Volunteers to take them on a Geo Caching Road trips. That evening Marbles, “The Queen of Dutch Oven Cooking”, led the girls in creating a full meal to include: a stew with all the fixings, garlic bread, and a dump cake. It was an amazing time.
The Casa Grande Chicken Chicks program has been going strong. Today, courtesy of Home Depot, we were given a huge load of culled wood. With that, 12 Juniors built a 10’x 10’ x 6’ coop that was divided into two spaces to include 2 mounted nesting areas with 3 hen spaces or should I say suites. One Girl Scout was so proud of the door she framed that she returned later that day with her Grandparents to take a picture with her coop and framed door. Next weekend…bring on the paint. The Hannah Montana Coop will have nothing on the GS Hen House =)
