Urban Campout

Girl Scouts throughout San Diego County have been celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouts San Diego this year, and Scripps Ranch residents are taking the lead. Katie Sullivan and her three daughters – Megan Delgado, Lindsay Estrada, and Sarah Houghton – are co-chairing Urban Campout: Celebrate 100 Years. It’s the 20th anniversary of this favorite annual event, which also includes Scripps Ranch resident Ann Holler on the planning committee.

Katie, Megan, Lindsay, and Sarah are all Girl Scout alumnae. Katie has volunteered with Girl Scouts for over 30 years, and has earned a Thanks Badge, the organization’s highest award for adults. She has chaired Girl Scouts San Diego’s Board of Directors and the Girl Scouts Empowered for Life campaign, as well as serving on the finance committee and as a national delegate to national conventions.

Ann also has a family connection to Scouting – she’s part of a four-generation Girl Scout family, and joined the organization as a girl in New Jersey. She and Katie co-led a Scripps Ranch troop for four years.

This year’s Urban Campout will be held Friday, Sept. 15 at Girl Scout headquarters in Balboa Park. Guests will explore Girl Scout history while earning “badges” for games and archery activities. Dress in vintage, glittery, or TGIF casual and enjoy gourmet fare and s’mores. Auction items include a seven-day cruise and a trip to the Kentucky Derby, and proceeds will fund programs focused on leadership, STEM, life skills, outdoor training, and entrepreneurship.
