In 1937, Girl Scouts did what we love to do today – camp. They held an encampment for the 25th Anniversary of Girl Scouts in New York. There were girls from 26 countries in attendance at the encampment (today we call them camporees!). I found a video of the “Silver Jubilee Encampment”.
The Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia council held the Centennial Camporee in June, 2012. They expected up to 1,200 participants! I was hoping to find a video that showcased some of the things they did at the Centennial Camporee but couldn’t find it. Maybe they are still working on it!
My council is hosting a 100th Anniversary Outdoor Roundup on Grandfather Mountain in September. They are estimating up to 800 participants to attend. If your troop is in the area, check out the website for more details: GS, Carolina’s Peaks to Piedmont, 100th Anniversary Outdoor Round-Up.
Yours in Scouting,
