Calling all Outdoor Chefs! Bring your hearty appetites…we’ll be cooking up a storm at camp this summer! Join us as we learn and share new outdoor culinary skills, well-seasoned with Girl Scout favorite recipes. Sugar Hollow traditions will continue: we will wade in the creek, enjoy nature, tie-dye, hike, sing around the campfire, and learn outdoor skills as we make new friends at camp.
Girls are grouped according to their January 2013 Girl Scout level and will earn the new Legacy Cooking Badge and a special patch from the GSVSC summer camp progression program. Unit capacity varies depending on level; some units DO reach capacity prior to registration closure.
