My daughter's are active in Girl Scouts, and for their 3rd consecutive year they will be attending a week long residential summer camp program!!
They'll be at Camp Scoutcrest which is located on beautiful Crescent Lake in Odessa, just 24 miles from Tampa. Core programs include sailing, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, tubing and wake boarding. Certified lifeguards and instructors ensure safety on the lake, while counselors provide creative encouragement and excitement on land.
All campers can play on the lake bouncer with its inflatable slide and log; go for a daily swim; and choose electives such as numerous lake activities (e.g. tubing, sailing, kayaking), fishing, outdoor cooking, creative arts and archery. What’s more, all campers will enjoy all-camp evening programs and on the last night of their session, they will launch wish boats during a very special closing campfire ceremony.
But within their core program they have both chosen a unique STEM class: Engineers to the Rescue, where Survival skills meet science as you build and design water filters, wind-powered cranks, a message-carrying car, and safe shelter after an earthquake strikes Camp Scoutcrest. How will you get out of this predicament? By working with your team and applying problem-solving and engineering design know-how!
Sounds awesome, right?? We love Girl Scouts!!
On September 27th you can join me, my daughter's and at least 1,000 other runners/walkers in beautiful Safety Harbor for the 2nd annual Thin Mint Sprint and Tagalong Trot.
We did the race last year and LOVED it!!
And YES....they serve Girl Scout cookies after the race? Notice the chocolate on Ella's face?
If you are thinking about doing it you'll want to sign up SOON because it did sell out last year, so don't delay!
GO HERE to register and learn more information about the race. Can't make the race? It's okay! There is a VIRTUAL race option!!
