Wet Felted Flowers – Saturday, June 6, 9am-noon, River Breeze Alpacas, 20 Hood Lane, Downsville, NY 13755, (Delaware County) Open to Girl Scouts in grades K–3. Have you ever met an alpaca face to face? Here’s your chance! Alpacas are barnyard animals—they won’t come to you like a dog but are generally friendly and curious. Visit them outdoors for about half an hour (weather permitting) and pet them and give them a treat. Bring your camera! After getting acquainted with these furry creatures, go in the barn and learn how to wet felt. Using your hands, soap, water, and fiber, make a couple of wet felted flowers! Sew some beads to the center of the flowers and attach a pin or clip to the back. You will be able to take the two finished flowers home with you. Please wear sturdy shoes! No sandals or flip flops!
You and Me at Amahami – Friday, July 31 5pm-Sunday, August 2 2pm – Amahami Outdoor Center, 434 Page Pond Road, Deposit, NY 13754, (Broome County), Open to Girl Scouts in grades K–12 and female adults. Bring your special adult female (mom, grandma, aunt, or older sister who is an adult) to share this camping time with you. Swim, boat, hike, and do arts and crafts together as you get to know Amahami.
