Event Details
Name: Mountain Magic
Description: We are changing things up a bit this year at Mountain Magic to give Leaders & Volunteers the most experiential training experience possible. Participants will walk through & practice actual activities and practices that can be taken back and done with your girls from leading a flag ceremony, making a SWAP, facilitating Kapers (Chores) & cleaning patrols to making a friendship bracelet, tie-dying a t-shirt & cooking a meal over an open flame! We know that learning by doing & having activities be hands-on are ways that people typically learn best & we want that to be the case for you!
