We are having our Spring Neighborhood Encampment at Camp Maripai, our Girl Scout camp located near Prescott, about 1.5-2 hours from Scottsdale.  It's a beautiful camp.  You'll love it!  
Program Opportunities:  Our Camp will be themed around Sustainability and Pirates.  Arrrrr!(Get it:  The 5 R’s ?) The wide game on Saturday morning will have games and crafts.  The afternoon is open for your own troop's activities, so you can take a hike, work on a badge, prepare gourmet meals, or even give your girls some down time.  Whatever you wish!  Archery ($6) for girls 4th and up is available.  We'll have a campfire Saturday night.  
Meals:   We will serve Saturday Breakfast, Saturday Dinner, and Sunday Breakfast in the lodge.  All troops will cook Friday Dinner and Saturday Lunch and any snacks they want.  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.  Some buildings have beds, some have only mattresses.  Sites will be assigned beforehand.
Swaps:  Once again, we will have a swap exchange. Please prepare your swaps around the camp theme or a wilderness/camping/outdoors theme. We suggest that each girl bring at least ten swaps, but that's up to you and your troop.   
Required Training:  All troops must have a troop First Aider with current First aid and CPR cards and a TCC person (Troop Camp Certification Levels 1 and 2).  (Leaders attending with just their daughters are exempt.  If you’re having trouble getting a TCC person, let us know.)
To Sign Up:  Please fill out the registration form.  
More information:  See the general encampment packet (camp rules, directions, schedule, etc.), and the Camp Maripai map.  Also, don’t forget to send Lee your check and Roster/Car Form and submit your Troop Trip Form to Susan R.  Troop camping assignments will be available a week or two before the encampment.
