When the snow is flying, all I want to do is think about warm weather and camp season! I’m ready for awesome camp adventures and meeting new friends! The camp guide for summer 2015 is at the printer and soon to be in your mailboxes. I was able to wrangle a sneak peek at the guide to share a few snapshots with you. Camp Farnsworth has some great new themed programs to chose from this summer. Check out the sneak peek below!
Today is National S’mores Day which in other words is a Girl Scout camp holiday. Our camp experiences would not be complete without roasting marshmallows over the campfire for s’mores! Back in February, we posted some recipes for s’mores. In honor of National S’mores Day, I wanted to give you a quick “how to” on creating those roasting sticks our girls all know and love making at camp! Post your creative s’mores recipes below!
- Wire Coat hangers
- Wire cutters
- paint stirring sticks/wooden dowels
- duct tape (in fun colors, of course)
- marshmallows and a campfire
Step 2: Place the end that used to have the hook against the dowel of paint sticks.
Step 1: Straighten hook. Using wire cutters, snip both corners, and remove bottom section of wire from hanger.
Step 3: Wrap hanger end and dowel with duct tape or electrical tape.
Step 4. Using sandpaper, sand both ends of the hanger down to bare metal and place ends in the camp fire to burn off any excess before using.
Camp Farnsworth celebrated its 106th birthday today with gutter sundaes, wish boats, a history play, birthday cake and more. A hot air balloon flew over camp to add to the festive day.
Very big THANK YOU to the Vermont National Guard for bringing their climbing tower to camp for us!
