Local Girl Scouts plan campout on the prairie

It will be a Girl Scout prairie weekend for local scouts on July 7-8, 2018, at Pioneer Bluffs, Matfield Green, Kan.

Girls scouts relax outside of a historic barn during a past Pioneer Bluffs campout.

The scouts will camp on the prairie, and sleep in the loft of the 1915 barn at Pioneer Bluffs, a historic Flint Hills ranch. They will be able to explore the creek, play old fashioned games, eat homemade ice cream, and sing songs around the campfire. They’ll cook dinner, s-mores and breakfast over a fire. Scouts will each earn one hour of community service. All meals provided.

The prairie campout is for grades 2 to 12, and will be held from 10 a.m. July 7, to 11 a.m. July 8. Registration deadline is June 25. For more information, contact Paula Roper at [email protected] or 620-343-4088.
