Girl Scout Juniors will discover art, nature and gardening at beautiful Lanier Mansion on the banks of the Ohio River. Girls will have the opportunity to participate in children’s activities from 19th Century Madison, Indiana. Learn about the Indiana naturalist and author Jean Stratton-Porter, a contemporary and kindred spirit of our Founder, Juliette Gordon Low.
Jean Stratton-Porter studied nature, wrote poetry, stories and novels. Based on the collection of material she gathered from nature, she wove tales of the natural world along with her stories of strong girls and women. Some of her tales included such memorable characters as Freckles and Elnora Comstock. In all tales, the moral of the story ends in a positive message of hope.
Activities on Friday evening will include a taste of the past, an orientation to the site, finger knitting and the opportunity to take photos for the Digital Photographer badge on Saturday (bring your own camera). Saturday’s activities will include a tour of the mansion and environmental activities to complete the Gene Stratton Porter Patch (separate cost for patch). Optional overnight accommodations are available in Madison and at Camp Whippoorwill (contact Terri Tock for details and additional overnight fees) Girls may also complete some of the requirements on six Journey skill badges ~ It’s Your Story – aMUSE Journey: Animal Habitats, Playing the Past, Social Butterfly Badges; It’s Your Planet – Get Moving!
