A whopping 130 participants attended Girl Scouts at West Point’s inaugural Field Day May 3 at the West Point Middle School Sports Field. Contestants participated in a total of six entertaining games—a horseshoe toss, long jump, mafecking, health trivia, beanbag toss and a pentathlon. Additionally, participants were dazzled by the effervescence of the event: a beautiful, sunny day in a grassy, fresh field with excited children running about.
Volunteers from Girl Scouts at West Point, Service Unit #222, and the West Point Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society were in charge of each station.
All students who aided during the event learned responsibility, trust and leadership, and NJHS members earned service hours.
When participants arrived at the event, they were greeted by Crystal Nelson, one of the Cadette Girl Scouts, and signed in at the main center, or “Command Central.”
