Fall Camping Trip (PHOTOS)

Girls making a craft!

Girl Scout Troop 4784 went on a fall camping trip recently. The trip was based on their Media Journey and New Cuisines Badge. They made tons of fun crafts and are currently setting up a video that will be shown on announcements at schools in Montgomery, Howard, and Frederick County.

Some crafts they made were magazine wraps pasted onto a box which may be used for locker decorations. Another craft Girl Scout Troop 4784 made was a picture frame that said different quotes from inspirational and meaningful songs. Next, they created sleeping masks to remind them of how they  need to rest over media overload. Also, they made selected quotes that relate to Media and The Girl Scout Law on circular lids hung by a string. Lastly, they painted miniature benches that represented “time out chairs” for our electronics to see that we can set a limit on ourselves and be active. They finally earned their Media Journey Impact Badge by planning a way to spread the message of “Be Active!” throughout Howard, Montgomery, and Frederick County.

Making yummy food!

Girl Scout Troop 4784 worked on New Cuisines Badge by making a meal from a different country. Two girls, Victoria and Alissa made breakfast from France. The meal consisted of hot chocolate, croissants, cheese and crackers, and crepes. Four  girls, Caroline, Anika, Marie, and Natalia made lunch from India. The meal was chickpea curry, smoothies, bread, and rice. Four  girls, Alexandra, Vivian, Christina, and KayLeann made dinner from Mexico. The meal was tacos, churros and ice cream for dessert. The last meal was made by three girls, Gabriela, Ryan, and Ciera for breakfast from Belgium. The breakfast was waffles, fruit salad, eggs, orange juice and hot chocolate. They visited France, India, Mexico, and Belgium all in two days!

The scouts have now learned that it is better to put electronic devices down and be active. They are now writing a script to film a video that will tell three different counties why to put their devices down for the following 24 hours… while learning to be a great chef!
