Girl Scouts enjoy springtime with learning and fishing outings

Area Girl Scouts have some springtime activities coming up, beginning with a STEM camp June 10-11, and a fishing outing on June 24, 2023.

The STEM Camp will be 6 p.m. Saturday, June 10 to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 11 at Camp Double E, near Emporia.

During the weekend, girls will have learn how citizen scientists make observations, collect data, and work with others to receive feedback on their research. The Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey is designed to help explore participants’ interests, gain new skills and make a difference in their communities with citizen science. There will also be games, time outside and picture taking. Scouts will be able to earn the Think Like a Citizen Scientist badge, which will be provided.

This event is for girls kindergarten age to fifth grade. Register by June 10. Camp Double E, is at 794 Road 200, Emporia, Kan.

During the “Me and My Buddy Fishing” event, 5-8 p.m. Saturday, June 24, girls will reel in their buddies, grab a chair and pole, and cast a line at Council Grove City Lake. The family event is a fishing and water safety awareness experience. The local Corps of Engineers officers will educate Girl Scouts and their families on water safety while fishing and how to have a great outdoor experience at the beautiful lake. A game warden will also be there to talk and teach about local wildlife. Poles will be available to use at this catch and release event. Participants must comply with Kansas fishing regulations and obtain a fishing license prior to the event for anyone age 16 to 74.
