Mall Madness

Friday night we joined 1600 girl scouts in Wichita Kansas at Town East Mall for a lock-in and a night of shopping, games, movies, dancing, pizza, and of course E-Tour fun!!! We set up a scavenger hunt in the mall, which educated the girls and their leaders on the 7 principles of leave no trace. Outdoor gear was hidden in natural settings within the mall (trees and plants), and the gear corresponded with scavenger hunt questions. We had 100 scouts successfully finish the scavenger hunt, and were rewarded with recycled bags, glow sticks, and leave no trace educational materials. At 2 am we raffled off a Coleman sleeping bag and pillow to one lucky girl scout who participated in the scavenger hunt. It was a late night/ morning and full of action in the mall. Thank you to the Girl Scout Heartland of Kansas Council, and Angela for having us.

Happy Trails from the E-Tour
