Get your Camp On

Every year Brownie Troop 32599 heads off to a weekend of Spring Camporee fun.  It's held at a YWCA camp not to far from where we live.  We mom's moan and groan about a weekend in rustic cabins eating camp food but we always have a great time when all is said and done.  As the girls get bigger they are more independant and can do some of the more fun things at the camp.  Their biggest disapointment is that they are not yet old enough for the high ropes course.  This is a group of alpha girls but they all get on well. 

 CMB and her two closes friends in the troop, R and E, drinking hot chocolate and playing bingo on night one. R won two games and a color on tatoo set with which she decorated all the girls later in the cabin.
 K, E and mom, Laura on the canoe lake.  Our troop has a less than stellar canoe history at Camporee. Last year we let K, E and CMB go out alone together and they had to be rescued from the center of the lake by the counselors, who fell in the lake during the rescue.  This year was much more sucessful with the addition of a mom in each canoe!
 CMB and R. The weather was nice and warm this year. Last year it was damp and very cold so this was a welcome change.
 CMB doing archery.  She was thrilled to be much better at this this year than last and spent almost as much time at the archery range as she did the rock climing wall!
Tie dying our camp tee shirts is a yearly tradition.  This year we managed to dye our tee shirts and not ourselves!
