More than 70 women signed on for a little pampering, relaxation and, well, clubbin’, at the the Girl Scouts of Utah’s annual Camping for a Cause charity event high above Park City at Camp Cloud Rim.
The two-day event kicked off Friday night with a silent auction, dinner catered by Frida’s Bistro, an oh-so-strong cookie-inspired cocktail dubbed the Dirty Girl Scout and dancing (hours worth) to the rockin’ tunes of local band Electric Circus.Girl Scouts of Utah CEO Cathleen Sparrow of the fundraiser, which benefits the organization’s statewide programs. “We changed it up a bit by bringing in music and really focusing on friendship and community. New people and longtime Girl Scout supporters just really came together. It was inspirational.”
Saturday activities included yoga, Zumba, fly fishing lessons, hiking, make-up lessons from Landis Salon and spa treatments from facials to eyebrow waxing by the Aveda Institute.
Want to get in on some the fun before then? You’ve got some options coming up this week alone. On Thursday, the Girl Scouts, in conjunction with the YWCA of Salt Lake City and the Utah Film Center, will host a free screening of the 2011 Sundance film “Miss Representation” (7 p.m. at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, 410 Campus Center Dr.) Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom will be on hand for a live Q&A after the film.
Get the kids in on some of the action on Saturday during Girl Fest at Sugar House Park. Radio Disney and the Girl Scouts will roll out games, live music and free giveaways. The event, open to active Girl Scouts and non-members, is $5 for youth (K-12) and free for adults.
