Summer Camp Revamp Rewind: Glowing and Growing!

Summer Camp Revamp has come to an end, and what an amazing six weeks of fun, learning, growing and glowing it was! From Mastering Mystery to Awaiting Adventure, every Girl Scout who attended our six-week at-home virtual camping experience turned this summer from a bummer to a BLAST!

For the last week of Summer Camp Revamp, Glowing and Growing, the girls refocused their energies and dedicated themselves to relaxation, mindfulness, and grounding. Whether it was spending time nurturing their green thumbs or making their own homemade skin care, the girls quickly became experts in all things self-care!

Read on to learn all about what the Summer Camp Revamp girls got up to last week, and over the past six weeks!

I Am… a Rainbow!

The girls, after making Gratitude Journals together for the week’s Discover Monday webinar (journals meant for writing down what you’re grateful or thankful for), got to work on their “I Am” Rainbows.

For each color of the rainbow, the girls wrote down different qualities they love about themselves, whether it was their intelligence, positivity, or courage. Then, after sharing with the group, the girls hung up their artwork in places they’ll be able to see every day, to remind them of their amazing qualities!

After going on wildflower scavenger hunts around their neighborhoods, the Summer Camp Revamp girls took action and planted different vegetables and flowers in their own backyards! And after experimenting with real dirt, the girls HAD to try eating…

… some dirt cake, which is delicious, we swear!

The girls then set to a day full of self-pampering, which included making their own spa treatments from scratch, including fizzy bath bombs, soothing face masks, and sparkly sugar scrubs. Girl Scout Lila filmed a tutorial for us: check it out below!
