Tamarack Camps Outdoor Education is excited to partner with the Girl Scouts of America. This past May, 94 Girl Scouts and their parents came to Camp Maas bright and early for the first Tamarack Camps Outdoor Adventure Day. Participants gained knowledge of teamwork, community and an appreciation of nature all while having fun outdoors! The girls were split up into groups based on their ages and enjoyed many outdoor activities.
Brownies started their morning in Pioneer Skills in Smoklerville making candles, ropes and doughnuts, going on a hayride, and participating in a lively square dance. Juniors climbed the rock wall and zip lined while the Cadettes tackled the high ropes course. The afternoon was filled with archery and canoeing. To wrap up an amazing Girl Scout experience, each member received a special Tamarack Camps Outdoor Adventure Day badge designed by the Outdoor Education Program Manager, Jess Whatley.
Multiple troops have already inquired about participating in their own Outdoor Adventure Day. Not only was a second date scheduled earlier this month but eight new dates are now on the books through 2017.
The demand has also inspired a new program called Tamarack Camps Outdoor Skills Day, which will teach the Girl Scouts how to prepare for camping trips and include lessons in knot tying, tent set-up and tear-down, and fire building.
