Girl Scouts of Colorado Troop 22619 recently received a donated trailer from the LOR Foundation, complete with signage donated by Brand Central of Cortez.
The trailer will be used in the troop’s future adventures, said a news release from Troop Leader Dena Stafford. The Girl Scout troop plans to use the trailer for river rafting, bike trips and camping this summer.
“The donation of the trailer by the LOR Foundation facilitated through their representative Nicci Crowley has made these adventures possible on a much larger scale than ever could have been done for these Girl Scouts,” Stafford said.
The Girl Scout Troop has used the trailer to bring all their camping gear to the Mancos State Park for their annual Winter Camp Out. It held the girls’ camping gear, outdoor cooking equipment, sleds and ice fishing equipment as well as snowshoe gear donated by the Gear Lending Library. The library is sponsored by School Community Youth Collaborative.
Members of the Ice Fishing Southwest Colorado group met with the Girl Scouts and taught them safety and tips on ice fishing at Jackson Reservoir at Mancos State Park. The Girl Scouts also participated in snowshoeing, sledding, snow-cave making and campfire ceremonies.
“The Girl Scouts had a great time, Stafford said. “The troop would also like to thank the SCYC for the free use of their snow shoeing gear.”
