Six girls from Troop 858 were awarded the Silver Award in May. As part of the requirements for the award, the Cadettes spent several months planning and then carried out their project called "Learn 2 Love Camp". It consisted of a workshop held at Camp Shawano for younger scouts from four other troops who had little or no experience with camping.
They taught them outdoor skills, campfire safety, fun camp traditions, and that "gross" stuff at camp (like bugs or latrines) isn't really that bad! It is their hope that their own love of our camps will be passed down to more Girl Scouts and will encourage other troops to utilize our camps more.
The troop celebrated their Silver Award achievement with a "Silver Supper" pinning ceremony and reception where all the food was served on silver platters!
Silver Award recipients: Morgan Smith, Shea Hausman, Elyse Halwes, Madi Halwes, Caitline Phan, and Carlie Fugate.
