Girl Scouts from around Watertown spent last Saturday night in the woods.
The scouts headed to Camp Cedar Hill in Waltham where they spent the day doing crafts, hiking and playing field games.
“Each girl was encouraged to be independent and self sufficient” said Encampment Director, Emma Galloway, “That’s what Girl Scouts is all about; Building courage, confidence, and character!”
Some of the activities included practicing to build a fire, archery, stargazing and cooking their dinner over a campfire. They also played field games such as empty pizza-box relay (with boxes donated by BHOP), beach volleyball and pool-noodle caber toss.
On Sunday morning a ceremony was held for girls who were graduating to the next level of Girl Scouting.
Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts serves more than 40,000 girls ages 5-17 and 17,000 adult volunteers in 178 communities across Eastern Massachusetts. For more information, please visit www.girlscoutseasternmass.org.
