Well, Girl Scout Day Camp is over and we all survived! It was actually a very well run camp and I would go back next year. It isn’t easy have running any kind of camp and a day camp is especially hard. Luckily, this is Girl Scout Day Camp and as a father, I can skip out on being a senior manager of such a function. I don’t mind helping but don’t stick me in charge of anything. Let me be a warm body that makes sure your kids don’t kill themselves.
Trust me, I like to be in charge but at Girl Scout Camp, I firmly believe that the mothers are totally capable of handling all functions of the day camp. Heck, we have lots of great moms in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts so I know they can handle a Girl Scout event. Both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts events are tough. You are a volunteer leader running a bunch of teenagers and other clueless adults (not really) and everything has to run smoothly. Nothing ever runs smoothly when you are a volunteer.
However, my hat is off to the wonderful mothers and daughters that ran the Service Unit 026 day camp this past week. They did an awesome job and I was very pleased with everything. I will recommend this day camp to all of my Girl Scouts.
