Chrysanthe Frangos, 11, sold 532 boxes of the staple cookies on her way to winning an overnight session at a yet-to-be-determined Girl Scout property (the organization maintains camp venues in Julian, Escondido and Balboa Park). The La Jolla resident said she has already signed up for the Spirit of Katniss archery session because she loves the sport and hopes to improve her skills. Katniss Everdeen is the central figure in the “Hunger Games” book and movie trilogy.
Frangos’ troop has scheduled a trip to San Francisco this month, financed with their sales proceeds. Joined by thousands of girls from throughout the country, the members will walk across the Golden Gate Bridge to symbolize their advancement to Cadettes, the next level Girl Scouting.
Girls in grades K-12 are welcome to attend a Girl Scout summer camp, even if they are not Scouts. Science, technology, engineering and math sessions include exposure to fields like marine biology and animal care. Outdoors types enjoy horseback riding, hiking, backpacking, canoeing, swimming and wilderness survival.
