blog 13 May 2013 | 2:33 pm
It was the last day of camp in the canyons of West Texas. The sun rose to illuminate the brilliant red and brown textures of the canyon walls that rose around our camp. Despite the wonderful scenery that surrounded us, it had been a fairly average camp. It was at a colder time of year, so there was the usual grumbling at the coldness in the evenings and mornings. We went for a long trail hike on the second to last day, and most of the Scouts and Leaders were pretty worn out of hiking.
It was the last day, and...

Bridging happens when a Girl Scout is ready to transition from one leadership level to the next. Bridging consists of two parts: earning the bridging award and participating in a bridging ceremony.
The Bridging Award
The Handbook section of the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting contains information about the bridging award for each level. Each level has two bridging award steps, Pass It On and Look Ahead.

The Wolverine Sentinel Boot Review
blog 13 May 2013 | 7:55 am
The Wolverine Sentinel is a full leather boot that is made in the USA. The Sentinel is durable, highly water resistant, comfortable and has a surprisingly sticky sole.
