On October 12 2013, the Junior Scouts of Troop 15513 opened the year with a day camping trip to Nelda’s Farm in Trinity Texas. The girls enjoyed playing with farm animals and learning about farm life. A memorable moment for the campers was handling a new born puppy as well as feeding a chicken and watching a rooster function on the farm.
The girls got to play on a tire swing which was new to everyone. They also painted their walking sticks to prepare for their hike. With every camp opportunity it’s important to know how to start a fire, which the girls learned how to make fire starters with paper egg cartons, dryer lint and crayons.
The girls then got to explore the farm during their hike. For the next trip we will look for arrowheads by the creek where Native Americans used to reside.
The young ladies were treated to a Spaghetti dinner. The dinner was the efforts of the Leader Selena Montgomery. For breakfast, the campers had a meal called “Calamity”, which is a combination of eggs, bacon, cheese and hash browns.
Troop Leader Linda Burnett, makes sure each year, the Girl Scouts make a concerted effort to enjoy and serve nature during these camping trips. Our goal is to offer experiences the girls would normally not have the opportunity to participate. Our programs build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. To unite with Troop 15510 ( K-1st), 15512 (6th – 12th) or 15513 (2nd – 5th) , contact Sister Burnett at email@example.com.
