A Note From the Founder - Summer Fun
Many Frontier Girls troops close for the summer due to scheduling difficulties, but that does not mean you can't work on your own from home. Summer time is a great time to work on badges you have been dying to earn, but the rest of your troop is not as keen on. Family vacations are also a great time to earn some extra badges on your own. If you plan to go out of town, look at the Travel Destination badge which can be earned for any location you plan to visit. Hot weather brings on opportunities of its own. Heading for the coast, how about Beach Fun? How about Water Games or Fun at the Pool? Look to the outdoors and explore badges such as Natural Wonders (specific) and earn a badge for streams, rivers, waterfalls, caverns, mountains, etc. What about hiking, camping, and outdoor cooking? The possibilities are endless, so don't let the summer fly by without learning something new!
