Camporee is a Girl Scout event where more than 6,000 girls Southern California get together to sing, dance, perform live stage performances, participate in outdoor programming, and do fun teambuilding exercises. Girls learn skills such as Stargazing, fire building, safety, how to use a compass, and knot tying. Some girls go for the day while others camp-out all weekend.
This year’s Camporee took place at Camp Arnaz in Ojai on March 25, and had a superhero theme. The girls spent time writing cards of gratitude to be shared with “super heroes” in our community. Several community super heroes were invited to share their knowledge with the girls. Local law enforcement from the Sheriff and Highway Patrol offices came to share safety tips with the young scouts.
