Wednesday Report

Hello Willow Springs followers! Today was another busy day in the woods; we had girls on the zip line (45 feet in the air!) while others created their own animal masks. Some girls shot glow-in-the-dark targets with glow-in-the-dark arrows while others played a fierce game of "Sardines." While the Boppin' Brownies did an interpretive dance, the Hidden girls worked with our fiber arts instructor, Squeaks, to learn hula hoop weaving. All in all, it was another hot, but exciting day at camp! 

Another Sunny Day

It was another sunny day in Prescott yesterday, reaching upwards of 93 degrees. Despite the heat, girls kept hydrated and powered through a day of fun-filled programs. Girls in the Archer and her Arrow session got a visit from Esmeralda, the Master Archer, who presented the campers with their own bows. Campers in Apache got to make their own first aid kits using pot holders, and Navajo girls split up to either make body glitter or work on team building through fun and challenging low ropes initiatives. Girls in the Hidden unit also split up and either learned more about the history of Girl Scouts or made their own ceramic heads with Bambi, our ceramics instructor. The Cocopah girls continued learning a dance routine to the tune of "Do You Believe in Magic?" while Hualapai went on a hike and learned to camouflage themselves in the outdoors. The day ended with human battleship, a pirate hunt, and the creation of a Willow Springs pirate flag. You can check out the photos from t…

Weekend Update

Hello friends! It was an exciting weekend at Willow Springs thanks to a great group of girls and their mama llamas. That's right! It was a Llama Tales-themed Me & My Gal weekend, featuring outdoor cooking (llama chow), a camp-wide game of Clue (The Hunt for the Golden Llama), archery, and llama mug making. Overall, littles and bigs seemed to have a great weekend, and we loved having them! The new week began on another good note--campers danced, geocached, learned how to shoot their first arrow, crafted sleeping masks, and traversed across wires using the weight of their team members. You can see some photos from last week, this weekend, and today below!
