Get ready! We are having our spring Neighborhood Encampment at Camp Maripai, our Girl Scout camp located outside of Prescott, about 1.5-2 hours from Scottsdale. It's a beautiful camp. You'll love it!
Wide Games! We will plan a wide game on Saturday to reflect the theme with activities and games. The remainder of the time is open for your own troop's activities, so you can take a hike, work on a badge, or even give your girls some down time. Whatever you wish! We will need adult and older girl volunteers to help plan and run the Wide Game. Please email Lee (email@example.com).
Archery: Archery is available for 4th graders and up (approx 1 hr/group, $6/girl).
Meals! Saturday breakfast, Saturday dinner, and Sunday breakfast will be provided. Each troop will provide their own lunch on Saturday, dinner on Friday, and any snacks they wish. Feel free to buddy up with another troop! This is a great bridging or friendship building opportunity!
Accommodations! There are various cabins and buildings for us to stay in, each of which accommodate a different number of people. Younger girls and first-time campers are generally most comfortable in the larger buildings, while older girls will stay in cabin sites or even platform tent sites. Some buildings have beds, some have only mattresses.
Swaps! Once again, we will have a swap exchange. Please prepare your swaps around a wilderness/camping/outdoors theme or the encampment theme. We suggest that each girl bring at least ten swaps, but that's up to you and your troop. We will be having a SWAPS Contest this time so get creative!
Required Training! All troops must have a troop First Aider, with current First aid and CPR cards. All troops must have an adult present who has completed Troop Camp Certification Levels 1 and 2. (Leaders who are attending with just their daughters are exempt.)
More information! The full registration packet will be distributed soon. In it, you will find detailed information including directions to the camp, the schedule, the menu, and so forth. Troop camping assignments will be available a week or two before the encampment.
