Indoor camping on day off

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- It may be a day off from school, but Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois will offer an indoor camping experience for girls in grades 4-8 on Feb. 13.

The all-day event will allow girls to make an edible fire, sing songs, play games, learn outdoors survival skills and pitch a tent - all indoors.

The Camporee is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Elks Lodge, 407 E. Park Ave., Waterloo. Girls should enter the building at the guest entrance.

The cost of the event is $10 per girl and includes lunch, snacks and supplies. Registered Girl Scouts who bring a non-registered Girl Scout friend will receive a special prize. Girls should wear their favorite pajamas and bring water and a sleeping bag or blanket for their indoor camping experience.

Registration is due by Feb. 10 by calling the Girl Scouts' Waterloo Area Service Center at 319-232-6601 or 800-798-0833. Additional information can be found on the Web at
