What's a LIA?

Our LIA program (pronounced Leah) is an opportunity for girls who are going into 7th grade to earn their Girl Scout Leader In Action award.  They spend part of each day planning activities to do with their younger campers, part of the day working with the younger campers, and part of their day being campers.

These young ladies work hard and play hard!  We are very proud of each and every one of them and can't wait to have them in our PA Training Program next year!

Super Saturday

We had a fantastic day today!  For the first half of the day we had regular camp activities.  The second half of the day we spent in party mode.  Tons of fun was had by all!  We kicked off the party with our traditional PA skit performed for the whole camp.  Next some of us won the privilege of tossing cheese puffs at Mr. Pagemaster's head.  Then we had free roaming time the rest of the day.  During this time campers are free to choose any of the open activities and stay there until they feel like moving on.  It is a very fun and busy afternoon!

Unit I - Last Day

Today was Unit I's last day as campers.  Next year they will be old enough to apply for the LIA program.  I think they had a fabulous last day at camp!

Late Night Tonight

I'll be at camp very late tonight so I won't be able to post more until late tonight, or possibly tomorrow morning.

But please stay tuned as I will have the last day of camp photos as well as other important information for you.

Thanks for checking in and thanks for sharing your lovely daughters with us this week!

I don't think it is a stretch to say that our camp has the best teen leaders you could hope to find!  I feel privileged to know such a wonderful group of young ladies!  They are everything you would expect a Girl Scout to be; considerate, caring, kind, responsible, friendly, etc. On top of all of those things they are fun, energetic, and a pleasure to be around.  Where would we be without these amazing young people?  I'm incredibly thankful for each and every one of them.

All Camp Hike and Picnic

We all hiked out to the far side of the lake to have an all camp picnic!  While we were there we had a celebration for camp's 15th birthday!  It was a lot of fun and there was a nice breeze over there.
