Last Saturday, our Brownie troop went to Camp Casa Mare to a Leaders in Action event. This event was cool because our Brownies had a group of Cadettes (6th, 7th & 8th graders) that were their 'leaders' for the day & they helped our girls work on their Wonders of Water journey.
Upon arrival, the girls played on the playground with lots of other Brownies while my co leader got us checked in.
Then we split our girls into 2 groups (smaller, much more manageable groups for the Cadettes, lol) for their sessions.
In our first session, the girls worked on their Love Water badge by learning interesting facts about water & making a personal commitment to conserve water. Addy committed to using refillable water bottles instead of store bought plastic bottles.
For our second session, we played games.
Like Red Rover
and a team builder game where the girls had to pass a hula hoop from person to person without unlinking hands.
Our third session was making beaded bracelets in one of the dorms where the Cadettes were staying.
And our fourth session was decorating refillable water bottles & water bottle holders.
We had a little bit of time before our last session started so we let the girls play on the playground.
Making a rock angel!
Our last session for the day was snack time, where the girls made fruit kabobs.
(Addy had fun making one, but of course she didn't eat any of it!)
We were also supposed to work on the Save Water badge during our last session, but for this badge, the girls are supposed to come up with a plan for the troop to save water & since our girls were separated, we really couldn't do it. And honestly, our Brownies & the Cadette leaders were so exhausted by then!
So instead, we just enjoyed the rest of the beautiful day on the bay by checking out some of the cool things at Camp Casa Mare.
This was our first time to go to Camp Casa Mare but I'm sure it won't be our last!
(Because it's by far the best Girl Scout camp I've been to so far!)
