Silver Award Project: Kylie, Troop 286

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

At the April SU meeting, Kylie gave a presentation on her Silver Award project and described her work as a staff member at Camp Primavera at Camp Crowell during Spring Break 2015.

Kylie planned and ran the Drama Center, helping girls to learn about Girl Scouts and develop their self-confidence through games and hands-on activities. She selected this project in order to help expose more girls to the opportunities that Girl Scouts has to offer and provide for the girls.

Great job, Kylie!!!

Before Registering for Camp

Remember, sleep-away camp registration is first-come, first-served. Encourage parents and leaders to up-date their camper accounts now, before registering for camp, to minimize technical difficulties and ensure swift registration. The online system will only allow girls to register for camp programs based on the grade currently listed in their account. If the grade in their account is incorrectly listed, parents will receive an er-ror and be unable to register. For safety reasons, it is critical that the contact information in each account is also updated. The contact information is given to camp staff as emergency contact information; please en-sure its accuracy for girl safety. For detailed instructions on how to update your camper’s account visit:

Summer Day & Evening Camp Applications Accepted

Registration opens on February 11. To register and view a list of all day and evening camp offerings visit:
