Camporee 2012

Girl Scout Camporee! How we have grown to love Camporee. It was our third year at Camporee and it was as fun as ever. Lots of singing, lots of skits, lots of outdoor camping fun. Our troop leader has taken on three troops at the school, so we were a big group though still divided by actual troops (Daisy, Brownie and Junior). The tent town was enormous just for the three troops alone and there was a lot of giggling at bedtime despite such busy days and late nights at campfire.

Troop 32874 doing their skit. This year it did not involve bathroom humor. Hooray!


I led a hike up the hill to over look camp. Despite the heat the girls did well. We had quite a view up there.

A baby rattle snake. This year wasn't as bad as last year. Just three or four caught and relocated during Camporee.

Bundled up early in the morning.

Lucy and her friend.

We made lots of SWAPs (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere) this year to exchange, so Lucy had a great time SWAPping SWAPs.

Day three of camping for "Lucky" and "Oodles". Lucy's holding up OK, but I look pretty rough around the edges. This is most likely because of my leaky air mattress that deflated after a couple hours of sleep each night. The ground is hard. Very hard.


Troop shot at the end of Camporee. They all look exhausted but in the best way.
