Christ-Centered Scouting Program Builds ‘Women Of Integrity’

Hovered around several tables in the cafeteria of St. Joseph School in Cottleville, more than a dozen fourth-grade girls were carefully squeezing thick lines of white icing along pieces of foam board. Giggles erupted as one snuck a finger’s taste of icing. Another managed to lace some in her hair as she pushed it back to work on her design.

The girls were receiving a lesson in the fine art of cake decorating from professional decorator and baker Melanie Coyne, a woman from the neighborhood. As members of American Heritage Girls, they were working toward earning a badge in cake decorating, one of more than 240 badges that the organization offers.

In 2012, St. Joseph became the first parish in the Archdiocese of St. Louis to host an American Heritage Girls troop.

With the help of The Foundry Art Centre and local Artist Fran Null, workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn non-traditional painting techniques and create masterpieces of their very own. Fran Null’s approach to inspiring children to make art is to use story books to spark the child’s own original composition.

This program is part of the Arts Collaborative Project where The Magic House is partnering with leaders in the St. Louis art community. The project gives children the opportunity to experience different forms of art creation as well as to introduce our visitors to some of the fine art institutions in St. Louis.

St. Louis Camp was “More Precious than Gold!” filled with Olympic themes

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!

This event is a little farther afield, but the Magic House makes for a very worthwhile weekend trip at any time. This Workshop could be a very unusual way to meet several requirements of the Artastic badge.
