Camping with your Brownie troop? Don't forget about badges to help the girls make memories of their trip. The Hiker badge is a great choice - our troop perused a map of the camp and chose a trail, listened to an experienced hiker discuss proper gear, learned and practiced making trail signs with sticks and stones, made a healthy GORP snack to eat on the trail, and then hiked. What a great accomplishment for the girls!
Our first badge of the official 2012-13 Brownie year, the Fair Play badge is a Legacy badge, Athlete category. To earn it, our girls played Octopus Tag to learn about team work. They watched Olympic video footage of Oscar Pistorius running on his blades to discuss physical challenges. Next week, we'll have a games relay and learn how to score a game.
