This year we had well over a hundred campers, aides and volunteers – over twice as many as when the camp was founded in 2005. We kept all safe, included, engaged, educated – plus hot, sweaty and having fun. Also making and enhancing friendships. This was our 14th year; We have many families who have been at camp for more than a decade – at least 5 with parents and their adult children volunteers. We had at least 7 adult volunteers who started as campers, some as early as going into 1st grade. We graduated 5 aides, some of whom have already committed to coming back as adults – one who hopes to someday bring her children.We worked towards 38 advancements, in all 6 program levels – and completed many of the badges; this was not hard, given that we have a track record of activities programmed into our camp schedule before GSUSA defined badges; most notably Cybersecurity, Geocaching, Digital Photography, Digital Movie Making, Robotics, Coding, and Engineering. 4 girls earned our Ohm’s Law Patch. We asked 5 questions in our new Career Support/Future Leaders area – with answers from all ages of campers, aides, and staff. Campers took over 1000 digital photos. We added to our collection of geocaching trackables (travel bugs), bringing to 62 the number we have released into the wild since 2005 – Virus, the farthest traveling bug has traveled over 120000 miles.

Get to know our trackables – by Zip
Some of the units constructed travel bugs, which we have registered at geocaching.com and will hide in geocaches, all told we have created over 60 travel bugs since the camp started in 2005. If you have an account at geocaching.com your camper can track all the camp travel bugs at http://www.geocaching.com – click the menu item on the left side for “Trackables”, then do an travel bug search by name “technology goddesses” – you should be able to follow the travel bugs that the camp has released.
