Get ready for some awesome summer camp adventures!

2015 Girls Guide to Summer CampWhen the snow is flying, all I want to do, is think about warm weather and camp season! The camp guide for summer 2015 is at the printer and soon to be in your mailboxes. I was able to wrangle a sneak peek at the guide to share a few snapshots with you. We have added some new exciting programs to the Camp Kettleford line up. Check out the sneak peek below.

What are you looking forward to this summer at Camp Kettleford?

Final Thoughts….

The seven weeks flew by, we had a busy, fun, safe summer.  The girls had a lot of fun with fairy houses, the “kiddie car wash”, waterfront activities, and camp fire cooking.  We’ll look forward to to seeing you next year!  A big thank you to our awesome counselors and the hard working administrative team, camp wouldn’t be the same without your enthusiasm and caring. With summer wrapping up my mind turns to the song Linger; “Hmmm, I want to linger here, hmmmum, a little longer, hmmmum, a little longer here with you”!  Have a safe start to the school year and enjoy your Girl Scouting year round.

Happy National S’Mores Day!

Today is National S’mores Day which in other words is a Girl Scout camp holiday. Our camp experiences would not be complete without roasting marshmallows over the campfire for s’mores! Back in February, we posted some recipes for s’mores. In honor of National S’mores Day, I wanted to give you a quick “how to” on creating those roasting sticks our girls all know and love making at camp! Post your creative s’mores recipes below!

Materials:

  • Wire Coat hangers
  • Wire cutters
  • pliers
  • paint stirring sticks/wooden dowels
  • duct tape (in fun colors, of course)
  • sandpaper
  • marshmallows and a campfire
