Camp Theme: SWAPS

Camp Description
Girl Scouts have all sorts of fun and interesting traditions. One of those traditions is SWAPS, which stands for "Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere" or "Shared With A Pal." SWAPS are small tokens of friendship that the girls make and exchange with other Girl Scouts they meet along the way. They come in handy when you meet a lot of different troops during events like World Thinking Day, summer camps, and when you travel. We will be making different SWAPS and an "I Spy" jar with items related to Juliette Low, making new friends, enjoying old friends and singing silly songs and lots of laughs.
