Summer Camp Revamp Rewind: GIRLapalooza!

Girl Scouts at Eckhart Park participating in Summer Camp Revamp— stay tuned for a blog post all about these girls!

Summer Camp Revamp is in full swing, and it looks like Girl Scouts across Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GCNWI) are having LOADS OF FUN!

Making tie-dye and DIY chalk, cooking up tasty carnival treats, recreating famous art pieces, and building their own festival booths–– these girls had a week full of well-deserved celebration!

Let’s learn more about what GIRLapalooza week was all about.

Celebrate Good Times

The Summer Camp Revamp girls got creative and made their own festival booths, and these Girl Scouts really went “out of the box!” Girl Scout Olivia created a mini kitten and puppy adoption booth out of a repurposed cardboard box, and her friend made a festival out of Lego toys! Great job, girls!

The girls also had a chance to complete the SuperHERo activity, where they brainstormed, talked about what makes them each a SuperHERo in their own ways, and came up with their own super-characters based on themselves! Girl Scout Sara showed us her very own SuperHERO character, and she looks SUPER.

The snacks the girls made throughout the week looked incredible, but we’re definitely partial to the way these mango-yogurt popsicles turned out! Looks like a recipe the girls will have to share with us!

Artistic Sensibilities

The revamped recreations of famous art pieces has continued throughout the week, and what these girls turned out is IMPRESSIVE! We are so happy to share just some of the amazing work the GIRLapalooza Girl Scouts have come up with–– take a look:
