50 girl scouts on the south lawn

mercyGirl was one of 50 girls
— and one of three from our Troop 3480 Juniors —
to participate in the first Girl Scout Campout at the White House
which included
knot tying next to the FLOTUS,


tent pitching,
making wudu and salat in the White House,
rock climbing,
a tour of the First Lady’s garden,
eating in the State Dining Room,
singing around a lantern “campfire” with a lip-synching President Obama,
a fifty-girl group hug with the POTUS,


star gazing with astronaut Cady Coleman and her NASA friends,
a 3-second hug from the First Lady,
tent camping and funny scary stories,
and an evacuation to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building
due to lightening and thunder
followed by an interview with Inside Edition.

in addition, her daddy completed another revolution around the sun.


good times and memories that will last a lifetime.

  1. Such a wonderful experience. SOOO jelly, but in a good way. I pray these young ladies will tell THIS particular story for years to come. Life is about memories and moments…this was truly a great one. Alhumdulilllah!!
