This past weekend was so much fun! The troop went to Camp Chowenwaw for a Glamping weekend. It was originally supposed to be for Cadettes and Juniors in the entire Service Unit, but of course nobody else signed up. So, we did it ourselves.
We arrived Friday night, had sandwiches for dinner. Saturday morning was a lazy day, we had cereal and fruit for breakfast. Lunch was sandwiches and then we went on a stroll and played on the playground. We met an international meditation group, and taught a couple of the girls and mothers how to finger weave :-)
After our stroll, we came back to do the spa portion of the weekend. We did a homemade honey and Greek yogurt facial, homemade lip stain with petroleum jelly and Cherry Pomegranate Crystal Light, had a manicure station, and a makeup station. Each girl got to choose samples that were generously donated to our troop by Mary Kay and Avon reps. We also had a benefactor that purchased mani/pedi sets for each girl (from the Dollar Tree, but still!) The girls, even those that originally balked at the idea of makeup, had so much fun! Even the rain (and eventual "Lake Squirrel Run") could not dampen our spirits!
We had the tables set up with tablecloths, but we did not get to do the centerpieces this time around. We didn't get to put the mints on everyone's pillows. There were a few more that we didn't get to do, that we will do next year! Now, on to planning our Mother's Day Tea...
