In August, 18 girls from troop 4545 in Norwood camped in teepees at Red Cone Retreat in Norwood, Colorado. Girls had fun taking on the roles of hops, mops and slops. The Juniors were team leaders, and helped show the younger Girl Scouts what needed to be done. Girls roasted hot dogs on a stick, had S’mores, and sang campfire songs. The girls loved the teepees, fully equipped with cots and air mattresses. There was a fully stocked kitchen, an outhouse, ping pong, swings, hammocks, a volleyball court and sandbox. The girls also identified wildflowers, and pressed flowers they found. We’d highly recommend this place to any troop. Cost was $17.50 per girl/per night.
