Bella, a 6th grader from Misty Mountains Troop 60142, was one of the Girl Scouts to scale the ropes course at the Camp Wendy Girl Fest.
“It was so exciting!,” she gushes, sharing her story of her time on the course, “I was nervous at first, but each obstacle I completed I got more excited!”
The course, finished last Fall, is designed to have Girl Scouts first climb a rock wall, and then complete a series of progressive tasks. We spoke to Bella a bit more about her experience:
Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson: If you were to describe your experience in three words, what would you say?
Bella: Challenging. Awesome. Exciting.
GSHH: What is the hardest part?
Bella: Waiting at the top with the wind can be a little nerve-wracking.
GSHH: What was your favorite part?
Bella: The free fall at the end
GSHH: What did you learn from this experience?
Bella: Completing it made me feel like I can do anything!
GSHH: Would you do it again?
Bella: Absolutely, yes! I would do it again. It was the best thing I EVER did!
GSHH: What would you tell someone who might be nervous to try it?
Bella: You’re a Girl Scout; find your courage. You won’t regret it; trust me.
