Volunteers lend a hand to help enrich a treasured Randolph Girl Scout Camp
RANDOLPH — Girl Scouts of Western New York’s Friends of Timbercrest volunteer group held its 5th Work Weekend event that occurs twice a year. Girl Scouts has a long history of connecting girls with the great outdoors in memorable and enriching, girl-led ways and high-quality Girl Scout camp experiences are a critical component.
Twenty-five volunteers tackled various improvement projects at GSWNY’s Camp Timbercrest at 11169 Moore Road. Volunteers worked and made enhancements to the Lake Tail and Timber Trail, painted the new boat shed, and assembled the first shipment of new picnic tables.
In addition, during this Work Weekend, Friends of Timbercrest volunteers offered their first program in service. The program provided fourteen girls and fifteen adults the opportunity to attend the Friends of Timbercrest’s Loop the Lake Nature Hike. Participants were treated to fantastic fall weather, toured some of the camp’s new features, and enjoyed learning stations on some of the wildlife that share the camp. Girls also received a fall hike patch and souvenir map of Timbercrest.
“We thank our amazing Friends of Timbercrest volunteers for their continued generosity to help provide enriching outdoor experiences for girls and prepare girls for a lifetime of leadership,” said Jerilyn Hickey, Chief Development Officer at Girl Scouts of Western New. “It is through the kindness of our volunteers and donors that Girl Scouts is a place where girls can explore, discover, and just be themselves.”
