SU72 Hunger Games Themed Weekend: Sept. 19-21

Posted by: Website Admin on Fri, May 9, 2014


Be a part of this memorable event..

The Program is open to Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors & Ambassadors.  This program will involve physical and mental challenges as a team.  Girls should be willing to have new experiences and should be comfortable being separate from their traditional troop and Leaders in order to work with new friends.  Girls should be comfortable sleeping in tents/tebins.  One adult per group must be certified for Outdoors/Overnigts 1, 2 & 3.  PLEASE SEE ATTACHMENT FOR DETAILS.

Maximum number is 150.  EVENT WILL BE HELD RAIN OR SHINE.  No refunds for cancellations.


For this camping weekend, troops will be divided across 10-12 teams.  Girls can dress in their team colors, if desired.  At least 2 girls from each troop will be on a team together.  Each team will decide on a name, will create a team flag, a team skill, and a team chat/song/cheer.  On Saturday morning, the girls will again join their teams for “training”.  Training stations for skills that will be required to compete in the Hunger Games will be available.  The girls will be able to pick and choose what training they need based on the skills team members have/don’t have and a list of skills required for the Competition Areas.  The actual Competition Areas will be focused around camping and outdoor skills, Girl Scout Trivia, and cooperative team building games.  The exact events are dependent on the skills that are available across those Adults and Ambassador Girls Scouts that will be Skill Supervisors.

After Lunch on Saturday there will be a Cornucopia where the teams can acquire some of the tools they will need for the competition.  After the Cornucopia the teams will work through the Competition Areas, will have opportunities to earn additional tools that will help them in Competition Areas and will face team challenges each time they meet another team.  Competition Areas will be in various locations around camp.  In order to ensure that each team member has the opportunity to participate in the competition, each girl must contribute at a Competition Area before any one girl on the team can participate in a second event.  Events will span all of the age ranges and skill levels in attendance so there will be opportunities for everyone to contribute as well as learn new skills. 

Points will be awarded throughout the day based on how the teams complete each Competition Area, the outcome of any team challenges and for their flag, cheer/song/chant and skit.

Final Team results will be available at the Closing Campfire, and the winning team will be announced.
