It was a beautiful weekend. I am better now. I think planning camp is like childbirth. As time goes by you forget how terrible it was.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Brrr, fall camp! We had songs & s'mores events all over the state on Saturday night and it was freezing! The site I volunteered at was one of the biggest with about 100 girls and around 25 adults. We had fun but I didn't feel warm until I was snugged in bed. emoticon
I can't imagine camping out right now. We've done it in our camper as a family but then we have the furnace (and our camper has heated mattresses!)

Well the girls had fun and that's what's important, right?

I was terrible from an adult point of view. We couldn't get much adult help planning camp and we got NO adult help at camp. So of course things don't go as planned, because the three of us that planned camp can't do everything all at the same time. We had several troops that came with just one adult. The leaders were complaining right and left, but won't help.

I am working on a list of rules for next year. We need a new person in charge and each town will plan a portion of camp. We have adult to two girls ratio, but no volunteers to help out. We usually let troops come with one leader if no one else can come, but that seems to give them a crutch to not help. So no exceptions next year.

The girls had fun and I will take that with me. But I am NOT planning camp next year.

You are brave - I did 2 summer camps (about that size) and retired from them. They were really fun for the girls but I just couldn't get the help I needed to put them on.

.....and I am in charge. We are doing J Lowe's birthday bash. The girls can earn lots of badges and learn about Juliette and GS history. We have 97 girls and 50 adults coming. I'm pretty excited! I hope it goes well.
