Girls of Courage & Character
Girl Scouts from Tioga County are currently taking part in the Mount Laurel Day Camp at Hills Creek. This is a week-long camp where girls work to earn badges and learn and experience new things. This year their camp theme is media. A few of these ladies came to visit Home Page for a tour and to learn how to communicate better.
Two Girl Scouts are doing a special project to earn their Girl Scout Silver Award. The Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can achieve before they get promoted to Senior Scouts. (As a Senior Girl Scout, the scout would go for the Girl Scout Gold Award which is the equivalent to a Boy Scout, Eagle Scout rank.)
Scouts Katrina and Ashley are selling gold rubber-band bracelets, which represent child cancer awareness. Both girls have had personal battles with cancer. Katrina has struggled with leukemia – now in remission. Ashley has had family members with cancer as well. The money they raise will benefit Camp Dost. Camp Dost seeks to provide a normal camping experience for children with cancer and their siblings. For more information about Camp Dost, go to http://www.rmhdanville.org/camp-dost.html.
