Kayaking is so much fun!

Encampment in Delaware

So many kayaks!

So many kayaks!

When three girls of Second Year Junior Troop #3147 went to the beach encampment in Delaware we had so much fun. After the first night we helped out with the breakfast cooking and serving. After breakfast we went to pack our lunch.

Our first activity was kayaking but on our way there we kind of got lost, but we eventually found it. Kayaking was fun and relaxing because the wind was in your face so it wasn’t that hot and we did a race with the kayaks too. Then we went back to our dorms and ate in the car since we couldn’t eat in the dorms and all the picnic tables were being used.

After lunch we went seining with the Brownies and First Year Junior Troop #3147. Seining is kind of like fishing but you don’t use rods, you use nets and catch things like horseshoe crabs, blue crabs, and silverfish.

When we got back to the dorms it started to storm so we hanged out with Cadette Troop #3148. While we were there we made our kites so that when the storm blew over we could fly our kites on the beach and we played catch. So when it did blow over we had so much fun at the beach and the waves were huge, also the kites flew really well. We also made dinner, which was fun, and we had s’mores.

Then the next day we packed up and the Cadettes and Juniors went to the park until we all left. What a great Girl Scout weekend!
