Girl scouts Christmas/Camping Skills Workshop
We used a Christmas event at Shangri La as our Christmas party this year, since we'd already planned a Halloween party and a ceremony. The girls invaded the nativity scene. We all saw Santa and were able to make ornaments. There is a Christmas tree trail decorated by local businesses that was fun to go through. My friend Joyce had an Elvis-inspired blue Christmas tree. It was nice to have all of the girls together.
A local junior troop put on a camping skills workshop for us. It was really well-done and sparked their desire to go camping. They learned how to be safe with matches, how to build a camp fire, how to wash dishes, how to pack lightly, first aid and how to make charcoal pizzas.
