Celebrating Two Girl Scout Passions: Camp and Animals!

Back to Camp Basics

Ever wondered what it would be like to go camping back in the days of Girl Scouts’ founder, Juliette Gordon Low? Campers went back in time for Evergreen Day Camp at Girl Scout Camp Evergreen.  This year the camp attracted more than 50 campers in grades K-6! The camp also hosted over 20 program aides (PAs).

Bellingham area girls’ Orca expedition

Getting Ready for Adventure

Living in the Pacific Northwest, whales are a big part of our natural world; however, many girls never get the chance to actually see whales. Thanks to the generosity of Captain Terry Buzzard of Island Mariner Cruises and the Everett O. Williams Foundation, our girls in the Bellingham area were able to enter a drawing where they could win a trip on a whale watching tour. Girls from five troops were selected in the drawing and won tickets for the trip: Troop #43653, Troop #42988, Troop #43525, Troop #52016 and Troop #42579! This week the winners got to claim their prize and more than 70 girls, parents, volunteers and staff headed to the San Juan Islands to try their luck at spotting whales! Read more
