Girl Scouts Beat the Heat at Farm and Ranch Day Camp

More than 100 Girl Scouts spent the week at the Farm and Ranch Club to beat the heat and do activities centering on the day camp theme, “Wild About Nature.” The week ended on Friday, July 13, with a carnival planned by Girl Scout program aides, who are girls ages 11-17 trained to work with younger girls.

At the carnival, girls “fished” for treasures, enjoyed a hula-hoop relay and splashed around at the sponge toss among other activities. The day camp held at the Farm and Ranch Club was one of 30 camps offered around the Council this spring and summer. The camps are planned and staffed primarily by dedicated Girl Scout volunteers.

Chartered by GSUSA to provide Girl Scouting locally, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is one of the largest Girl Scout councils in the country serving over 63,000 girl members and 18,000 adults in 25 southeast Texas counties. For more information call 1-800-392-4340 or visit
