Girl Scouts find inner superheroes

Aqua Woman, Super Girl, Wonder Woman — Girl Scouts found their “real life” inner superheroes during this year’s Girl Scout Camp at the Auglaize County Fairgrounds.

“We thought it would be good to show that girls can be powerful, too,” PA Emily Deffenbaugh, 16, said. “I think it’s important for them to know that they can do anything, even if people tell them no, they can’t. They can do it.”

Emily said the PAs, the senior Girl Scouts, came up with the theme of “superheroes” for this year’s camp, along with organizing the activities. She said there are a lot of superhero-themed movies lately, and this would be a new “out of the box” theme for the scouts.

The PAs planned a water themed day for Aqua Girl, a patriotic themed day for Wonder Woman, and a flying themed day for Super Girl, PA Holly Schaffer, 15, said.
