Local Girl Scouts from Floresville, La Vernia, and Poth spent a cold, but exciting, Halloween weekend camping at La Jita, just a few miles south of Lost Maples in the Hill Country. More than 30 girls representing Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes participated from Troops 559, 639, 1165, and 2532.

The girls celebrated the birthday of Girl Scouts USA founder Juliette Gordon Low on Oct. 29, earning a special patch. They learned about Low, participated in a show and tell of memorabilia, decorated cupcakes, and played games in honor of Low, who was born Oct. 31.

A hike through La Jita’s must-sees was the focus of the afternoon. The girls earned the La Jita Magic patch by visiting the camp’s dinosaur tracks and wallowing hole located in the now-dry bed of the Sabinal River. They also heard the stories about Storybook Tree, an ancient cypress located on the riverbank.

A Halloween carnival entertained the girls Oct. 29, following a night hike through the woods. Scouts participated in fun games including “bobbing” for hanging apples. On the way back to camp, the girls trick-or-treated at cabins along the trail. With temperatures close to freezing both nights, the girls bundled up for bedtime.

The Scouts hiked to Green Chapel Oct. 30 for a girl-led service of prayers, songs, and thanksgiving. In all, the girls participated in three hikes, earning the hiker badge for Brownies and Juniors, and the trailblazing badge for the Cadettes.

Lisa Theuret is a teacher with the Poth Independent School District.
