On a hot day in the mid- 90’s near Colorado City, the cool breezes wafting through the 8,000 ft. pines at the Lazy Acres Girl Scouts camp feel wonderful. A feeling of excitement is in the air as the adult volunteers and camp counselors gather girls of different ages into groups for the day’s activities. There were planned programs based on Native American themes with pinch pots, cardboard weaving, etching on rocks, and writing a story of the week using only pictures. The girls sang songs, did flag ceremonies, played games, worked on outdoor skills and on four different outdoor based badges. Each girl has a kaper (job) to do every day. Hats, bandannas, a water bottle are required every day and buddies are required at every Girl Scout event everywhere.

“Our belief is that Girl Scouts is a safe, no-limits place where every girl can be inspired, try new things, take on challenges, build community and inspire others. A place where ‘Can I’ quickly turns into ‘I Will’. Where a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) transforms her ideas into actions, turns questions into adventure, and grows her confidence through practice,” stated Camp Director Jill Marostica.
