Nola.com reports that “Camp Crawfish goes to Hollywood” was the theme for this year’s weeklong day camp event. Camp director and leader of Algiers Junior Troop 40803 Sunny Shannon said Camp Crawfish is important because it helps the girls build leadership skills.
“They need to participate in activities and events like these in the summer and Girl Scout troop meetings and activities during the school year because this is the foundation for them to learn leadership skills,” Shannon said. “That’s what we’re all about. In school, they learn academic skills, but in Girl Scouts, my focus with my girls is all about leadership. It’s all about learning how to conduct yourself, learning how to take the lead, helping them achieve their goals and helping them to become empowered.”
