Girls interested in a two-day adventure in scouting can join Service Unit 649 for an adventure in athletics June 8-9 at the Lake Jacomo Youth Primitive Camping Area. There’s even an optional overnight Saturday night.
Girls will complete requirements to earn their age-level athlete legacy badge. Highlights include a trip to the Kansas City Chiefs Sports Lab at Arrowhead Stadium and a chance to cool off on the ice at the Independence Events Center Community Ice Rink. At the ice rink, girls will learn from a figure skating coach and a hockey coach.
Girls will also participate in a field day experience with team and individual sports: stretching, strengthening, and techniques to visualize success and winning. Bus transportation will be provided from the day camp location to and from the Sports Lab and ice rink.
Summer camp is for girls first grade and older and adults.
Camp registration takes place May 7th, 6-8:30 p.m. at the Hy-Vee Cafe, 310 S.W. Ward Road in Lee’s Summit.
“Summer Day Camp is an awesome way to make new friends and try new things,” said Liz Gregorie, camp director. “And this year we’ve expanded our format to include two days of fun plus added the option for girls to stay overnight and experience tent camping at Lake Jacomo.”
Camp costs $35 for all activities and an additional $10 for the overnight. Adults also are welcome and pay the same fee. Girls and adults not currently registered as scouts will also need to register and pay the $12 national dues. All campers will receive a free T-shirt.
Service Unit 649 serves the following schools in Lee’s Summit - however all area girls are welcome to attend: Cedar Creek Elementary, Lee’s Summit Elementary, Our Lady of Presentation, Pleasant Lea Elementary, Pleasant Lea Middle School, Summit Academy, Westview Elementary, Woodland Elementary and Lee’s Summit West High School.
