And to get you started ... here are some stories you might want to tell:

  • A "first" you experienced this year
  • A breakthrough moment you watched/helped a girl achieve
  • Personal success that you attribute to your Girl Scout experience
  • A moment that made you glad you are a Girl Scout (girls, staff or volunteers)
  • An experience that defines courage, confidence, character or leadership

"Phoenix" is Mary's camp name. "Click Chick" is mine. Our Camp Director is more widely known as "Skipper" than by her given name. This is part of the culture at camp ... and it's fun. But don't let the fun fool you. There is serious business going on as well!

As Channel 6 featured today, Girl Scouts are serious about taking care of girls. Safety is paramount and we take great pride in knowing that our Camp Counselors are fully trained to handle emergencies. Today's feature? Weather. Are Girl Scouts prepared? You bet!

Phoenix is a great example of growing up a camper and rising to the challenge of leading and protecting younger girls ... I'm impressed!
