Beaver Lake Day Camp Origins

Restart in 2011

A group of 4 women restarted the day camp program for Beaver Lake Service Unit in 2011. At the time we all had daughters who were active in Girl Scouts and we all wanted a Day Camp where they and all Girl Scouts could attend and have a great time.  We restarted this camp purely because we all love Girl Scouts and what Girl Scouts has done for us, our daughters, and the many other girls we have had contact with through our association with Girl Scouts.

Original Team

The 2011 Planning Team consisted of:

  • Director/Program/Crafts: Carebear (aka Carrie Sorenson)
  • Caddie Director/Program: Tigger (aka Dawn Duerre)
  • Food Director: Dirk (aka Carol Peterson)
  • Registrar/Treasurer/Communications/Product: Fred (aka Jean Glaraton)
