Encampment 2012

Camp was fun and exciting and COLD! MD and I roughed it in the woods with the other 11 Girls Scouts.
We were in cabins but the cabins had screens for doors and screens for windows so it was still really cold. But we did have toilets and it was pretty clean and I didn’t see one bug so I would say it was one of the easier camps we’ve done. It was a none stop weekend.
The people that planned the “encampment” were really organized and had everyone on rotations all ending with a fun dance. There were lots of screaming girls, whining moms and plenty of dirt to go around. One of my favorite things they do at encampment is Girl Scout swaps. Here MD is with two of her Dasiy friends proudly wearing their Swaps.

Swaps, for those that don’t know are some sort of (normally homemade) trinket that hangs by a safety pin and the girls swap them. The encampment’s theme was renaissance so there were lots of princess crowns, swords, shields etc but there were other’s that were just girls scout themed or camping themed etc. I like to see how creative everyone is. MD was the only experienced camped so all the parents were really nervous but I think everyone did great.

If you click on the pictures they get bigger. For some reason WordPress isn’t doing what I want and I just don’t have the energy to mess with it anymore tonight…

Now its bed time as we have been on winter holiday for the past three weeks and tomorrow everyone goes back to school and I go back to work. I am not looking forward to this.

By the way… hating on the new phone so far….
