My First Overnight Camp With My Girl Scout Troops!

I just got back from my very first time camping with my Girl Scout troop as a Troop Leader. Although my whole body is sore and I could've used about four more hours of sleep this morning, I had a blast! My girls are Brownies and it was their first time at camp and their first overnight as a troop. It was a pre-programmed event held at a Girl Scout property. We are lucky enough to be a 40-minute drive away from a Girl Scout camp. I am very sad to find out that they have the place for sale and this is the last year they'll be able to have programming at the camp. Next year we'll have to drive almost two hours!

I had some ideas on an old board I pinned some time in the past, and I found some new ideas. Check them out:
