Girl Scouts in Europe Attend Laughing Woods Summer Camp

This year, USA Girl Scouts Overseas – North Atlantic, held their annual Laughing Woods Summer Camp, for Girl Scouts living in military and civilian communities throughout Europe.

USAG Livorno reports that in collaboration with a local sailing club, this year’s camp offered ‘Smooth Sailing’. During a five day sailing class, the girls learned the ins and outs of sailing smart from local sailing instructors; plus the Girl Scout Cadets worked toward earning the Smooth Sailing Interest Project Patch while learning safe boating and water safety.

The Italian sailing instructors also used this as a great opportunity to learn the English language while having fun, teaching about the sea, the wind and how to sail.
