The official description for the camp reads as follows:
Join us at the Highland Hogwart's Academy for the "wizarding" world of Girl Scouts. Have you ever wanted to participate in a Quidditch match? Well, jump on your broomstick and head on down for some Harry Potter excitement. Girls will have Quidditch lessons with Madame Hooch, scavenger hunts to locate the 7 horcruxes hidden around camp, experiment with Science & Potions with Professor Snape, create SWAPS in Diagon Alley and learn astronomy with Professor Sinistra. We will enjoy refreshments like Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans and more as well as some twilight star gazing.
Recruiting more friends, another soon-to-be kindergartner and her mother, we all piled in the car
|We're going on a Girl Scout Camp hunt . . .|
Safety first, a multi-layer security plan was put in place in order to check campers in and out which put parents and guardians at ease, a reassuring start. Without further ado, though, I think the joy on the girls' faces below as well as the authentic adult participation speaks volumes. Looking forward to Girl Scout Camp in Highland next year . . . Scout's Honor!
