Troop 1310 Founded in Feb 2019

Camp Bunn 2021 - Camp Awards

In the summer of 2021, a few of our girls attended 1 of 2 different summer camp programs that were offered. A few of the girls attended the 2nd week of Camp Bunn BSA Summer Camp. On Thursday of the camp, the camp help a Dutch oven cook off with the camp staff as judges. There were several different dishes being prepared by different troops. Our troop made a modified Dutch oven dump cake.

With the modified version, our troop won the "Golden Spoon" award. 

As well from keeping our campsite clean, working on a conservation project and other requirements, the girls won the Camp Bunn's 2021 Baden-Powell Honor Patrol award.
