The second annual St. Louis Regional Camp was hosted in partnership with the Greater St. Louis Area Boy Scout Council at Beaumont Scout Ranch. Five American Heritage Girls Troops attended from as far away as Leavenworth, Kansas and Batavia, Illinois. Three St. Louis area Troops attended. The four-day, three-night resident camp was attended by nearly 60 AHG Explorers, Pioneers, Patriots and adult leaders who participated in archery,
swimming, and outdoor skills activities. The infamous mud cave continues to be one of the camp favorites … The only place where girls try to get muddy! The final evening, camp was opened to nearly 25 Tenderhearts and their families who learned about hiking
and outdoor skills before joining a party, campfire songs, skits, and smores. A worship service was held in the outdoor chapel. Girls from every denomination lifted their voices in worship, prayer and praise.
The girls enjoyed devotions and activities surrounded by the Olympics themes “More Precious than Gold.” By the end of the week, every girl earned a “gold medal” (made out
of spray-painted paper plates and ribbons) for awards like the gold medal “giggler” “happy camper” and “most muddy.” Faith, Service and Fun was had by all!
