This is the first of our Flashback Friday blog posts for the summer months! Every Friday we will re-share a post previously shared on GirlGuidesCANblog, that related to the summer months (camping, outdoor fun, family time). Enjoy!
Because of a new baby in the house, my eldest daughter had been unable to attend the Sparks camping trip this past year. We were excited to find out that there was a Dad and Me camp so that both girls (a Brownie- and Spark-to-be in September) could have the camping experience.
From what I hear, the dads and women Guiders all got along very well, and euchre tournaments took place after the giggling girls were all asleep! As for the girls, they had the time of their lives. It was a hot weekend and the girls were swimming in the warm water for hours. They talked of roasting marshmallows, digging for clams, climbing an obstacle course, and building sandcastles. They returned home tired but happy, covered with dirt and sand, and with huge smiles on their faces.
We definitely plan to do this again next year and perhaps try out the ‘Mom and Me’ or Family Camp as well. With three girls in the house we will be going to GGC camps for a long time!
