Girl Scouts Trip to USCG Base

Last weekend we had an amazing time at the Coast Guard base with the girl scouts. It was a special girl scout outing led by girl scout troups and active duty coast guard personnel. 

There were 3 different stations that the girls rotated through. And we got to walk in between the hangers, which was a fabulous use of excess energy!

The day was so educational and fun for the girls and parents alike. I was very impressed with all the incredible organization that went into the event, and the time that was donated by the active duty coast guardsmen and women. 

Walking to the first presentation with our guide, Allie. 

The mini oil spill demonstration. Oil was dropped into the water and the girls tried various products to mop up the oil. Note the boat and the beach!

Military police demonstration~ Girls weren't quite as into the police dept. 

lunch time! Running towards their food.

The hit of the day; Fire truck demo! The girls squealed with delight. 

The girls and firehouse guide. He was fabulous answering their many questions.
