Back to Basics 2016

Girl Scout troops 3099 and 3715 attended Back to Basics camp at Camp Daisy Hindman just outside of Dover with other area troops. 

Local Brownie and Junior troops attended camp hosted by our Service Unit. Here girls go to activities lead by older Cadette Girl Scouts. They go on hikes to learn some basic survival skills, learn how to read a compass, First Aid, build fires, knife skills and cooking on fires. 

In the evening, Girl Scouts have the opportunity to explore camp a little more. Our troops adventured through the muddy trails and tried to get lost. Along the way, we found others troops and fresh deer tracks. After all the walking through camp, the reward for the girls was of course roasting marshmallows and having S'mores!  These girls are ready for their next campout.
