2018 HVGS Service Unit Campout
Despite the morning rain and cool temperatures, more 150 Girl Scouts ranging from 1st to 12th grade came together to learn essential camping skills including fire building, knife use, and knot tying. The Scouts also enjoyed hiking, an obstacle course, decorating pumpkins, making friendship rocks and bird feeders, and a campfire complete with singing and s’mores. Older Scouts planned the event and taught skills to the younger girls.
Roxanne Clarke, Service Unit Co-Manager noted the tremendous community support, “All of this was made possible by our truly dedicated and hardworking volunteers and local businesses especially Mary Innocenzi, owner of the The Village Learning Center; Jim Sansone of Sansone's Farm Market; Andy Fosina of the Hopewell Township Bureau of Fire Safety; and Chief Lance Maloney of the Hopewell Township NJ Police.
We hope that this event has begun a life-long love of camping!"
