Camping at Blue Bay in the winter is crazy you say?
Troop 1025 from West Hempstead/Franklin Square Association
doesn’t think so. It is one of our most favorite activities every year. We have
had pajama fashion shows, nail polish parties, and this year paint night. No outside
activities you say? We take hikes, go to the beach, build snowmen and even have
compass races for prizes. The wildlife is abundant and fun to watch. The activity
building is a favorite hangout where we play volleyball and other sports. The
cabins are warm and comfortable and the perfect venue for badge work and
crafts. The kitchen is great for cooking our meals but we have been known to
cook out on the campfire when the weather permits. We love making fires in the
fireplace and of course sharing S’mores. We have been going for many years and
hope to go many more!
Whether earning badges, working on a Journey or just having
fun, Girl Scout Troops have a blast when they go Troop Camping at Camp Blue
Troop Camping is a unique experience planned and carried out by a group of
girls and their camp-trained volunteers/leaders. Under the guidance of trained
and enthusiastic adults, girls may take their first hike, build their first
campfire and sleep under the stars for the first time—so cool! Girls take part
in planning of meals and activities, learn outdoor skills and work as a team to
enjoy a fun outdoor adventure. These opportunities are available year round and
registration is ongoing.
