We are having our  Spring Neighborhood Encampment at Shadow Rim Ranch, our Girl Scout
camp located near Payson, about 1.5-2 hours from Scottsdale.  It's a beautiful camp. You'll
love it!
Programs:  Our Camp will have a plethora of activities for girls to enjoy.  Canoeing ($8),
Archery ($6), and Climbing Wall ($6) for girls 4th and up, Zip line ($8) for girls 6th and up.  
For all ages, there’s a great creek for creek walking, and activities at the Heritage House.
The remaining time 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! 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 a few days beforehand.
Swaps:  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.) TCC Training Info
To Sign Up:  Please click this link to fill out the Registration Form.  

More information:  See the general encampment packet (camp rules, directions,
schedule, etc.), and the Shadow Rim 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 few days before the encampment.  


Due to the unusually cold weather this year, Troop 2010 is proposing some changes for Camp Basic. Instead of camping overnight in the cold, we think we should turn this into an all day camp out. We will still set up the tents and complete all the camping skills stations throughout the day. Instead of breakfast on Sunday, we will make a yummy lunch on Saturday. We will have dinner together, s’mores, and a campfire. Our goal is to have this be a positive experience for our attendees. We are afraid camping in the bitter cold will be a negative experience. So, instead of camping overnight, we will all go home after the campfire. Here is our proposed schedule:
7:00AM                Troop 2010 arrives
8:00AM                Staff (helpers) arrive
10:00AM              Campers arrive
7-7:30PM             All campers and staff depart
Please email back with any concerns you may have and to confirm that this will work for you.
Kaitlyn Hohl
Camp Director
On behalf of Troop 2010

SPECIAL NOTE...If there is anyone in the neighborhood who was considering attending Camp Basic, but chose not to because of the cold, please join us. We would love to have you. For planning purposes, we need to have your responses by Monday, January 7.
