Thank You Twilight Camp
I would like to publicly applaud the great efforts of Jan Archer, Stephanie Fram and Lisa Dutton (and the many other volunteers) for organizing the 2011 Crescenta Valley Girl Scout Twilight Camp. The Twilight Camp is a camp for Brownies and Girl Scouts in which the leaders are cadets or teenage Girl Scouts. The volunteers began the task of organizing the camp months in advance. The camp theme this year was Fossils and Forests and took place the first week of summer at Hindenberg Park. Each afternoon at 3 p.m., the Scouts gathered among the mighty oaks and sycamores where they sang in the meadow, tie-dyed shirts, made dinner in cardboard solar powered ovens, created art and frolicked until 8 p.m. each evening. One could feel the excitement building in the Crescenta Valley each afternoon as camp time arrived. Jan Archer, whose camp name is Bee, told me, “To see the smiles on the girl’s faces makes all the work easy.” Well, I thank you, Bee, for putting a smile on my face knowing that my daughter and her friends (along with more than a hundred other Scouts) were being treated to the magic of Twilight Camp.
