Twilight Camp Fun!

Posted: Jun 14, 2012

About 200 Girl Scouts from the Mountain Rose and Squash Blossom enjoyed a week of Twilight Camp at Camp Sombrero last week!
The theme this year—100 years of Girl Scouting!

Each night was dedicated to a different decade of Girl Scouting, and the girls were able to see the uniforms and other Girl Scout artifacts from that era, and learn what it might have been like to be a Girl Scout during that time period.

And of course, there was swimming, games, crafts, and Girl Scout songs!

On the last night, girls in 4th grade and older got a special treat! They were able to stay overnight and have a traditional Girl Scout Camp experience.

Camp Maripai-Update

Posted: Jun 05, 2012

There was a broken electrical line issue on June 5th at Camp Maripai, causing a very small fire. Camp staff reported the incident to a local fire department. Response was quick, and the situation was quickly resolved. No camp buildings were threatened, as the situation was a considerable distance from any occupied buildings. All camp employees are safe and fire officials have determined there is no reason to postpone any camp activities.  

Camp activities are not scheduled near the affected area.

An update on the Wilfires up north:

Over the recent past, wildfires have been both a man-made and  natural event that we must deal with.  As always, your campers safety is our number one concern. Please be assured that we are in regular communication with the National Forest and respective County Emergency Management divisions. Unfortunately, this year’s fire season has started early, but as always, we will continue to monitor all fires throughout the state. As of June 6th, the Gladiator Fire is 85% contained and still does not pose an immediate threat. The Sunflower fire is out.  Unless the situations drastically change, there will be no further updates on these two fires.
