SILVER LINING—CAMP TUCKAHO RENOVATION PROJECT
Reese, Abby S., Abby W., Lucy, Kathryn, Anna and Bella from Troop 1247 decided they wanted to have an impact on an important tradition at Girl Scout Camp. To earn their Silver Award, these girls took action and helped renovate a special area at Camp Tuckaho. Located in Troy, Mo., Camp Tuckaho is one of Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s three camp priorities where Girl Scouts and their troops can enjoy the Outdoor Adventure Course, canoeing, archery and so much more. Now, Girl Scouts visiting camp can enjoy the newly-renovated outdoor theatre made possible by Troop 1247. These young change-makers started by clearing out the leaves and cleaning up the area. They then replaced the bench tops and podium with waterproof tops to last for years to come in the outdoor environment. Next, the girls built a mini bridge over a small creek to provide easy access to the campers. Finally, the girls put down new mulch around the benches and up the trail that leads to the theatre.
