A Busy Weekend: Oyama Hike and Mikan Picking
November 15th & 16th
Girl Scouts had a jam packed weekend! On the 15th we took 17 girls (and 11 parents!) on a hike to Oyama. All told, we walked 6 miles, made it to the view point, and saw some beautiful fall colors. Then on Sunday, the 16th, we took the Camp Zama Girl Scouts Mikan Picking with the Zama Japanese Girl Scouts. At the event we had 24 kids (15 of which were Girl Scouts), 17 parents, and 8 host nation Girl Scouts. We ate countless mikans and played a fun game with the host nation troop! >>Pictures.
