Trailblazer Gathering @ Spring Rendezvous

  • April 26-28, 2019 at Camp Minsi, Pocono Summit PA

Trailblazer is a half-day orientation to Scouts BSA especially designed for new girl troops. It will be held in conjunction with Camp Minsi’s annual Spring Rendezvous Weekend. Scouts will participate in the morning gathering which will cover these topics:

  • Welcome to Scouts BSA! - Learn where to look stuff up to help you get going.  We will also cover tips on picking a summer camp and how to prepare for that experience this summer.
  • Light It Up! - Learn the basics of fire building and identify when to use each type of fire to accomplish the task at hand.
  • The Patrol Method in Action! - Teamwork in scouting is called the patrol method. Participate in a role-playing exercise as we walk through the process of making that first breakfast.  Instrumental in any patrol cooking activity is the ”eliminate arguments” Duty Roster approach.
  • Girls' Chat! - An open discussion on camp and camping, with girls, for girls, and by girls.

Scouts will then join the Spring Rendezvous action by spending their afternoon and evening sharing in some awesome outdoor adventures and fellowship events at Camp Minsi -- such as open boating on Stillwater Lake (including paddling as a group in our massive voyageur canoe); participating in unique hands-on shooting sports activities at all shooting ranges, back country hikes; and much more.  

Adult leaders will spend the first part of the afternoon exploring Troop Committee administration best practices shared by seasoned Troop Committee members.
