Wednesday Wow: Western NC Girl Scouts Enjoy the 3rd Annual Camp Blumenthal

April 25, 2012

These are some of the 40 Girl Scouts who spent the night at the Belk Theater recently.

On Friday, April 13, over 40 Girl Scouts from Western North Carolina spent the night in the Belk Theater’s Mezzanine lobby.

Why, you ask?

The girls attended the third annual Camp Blumenthal where they saw BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL, took a backstage tour, met some cast members and participated in several  activities.  Sounds fun, right?

Take a look at the one-of-a-kind weekend these 40 girls got to experience!

8 PM – The girls gathered in Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center for that night’s performance of BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL.

“Definitely worth the money.” – Girl Scout

After a good night’s sleep, the girls were in for a fun morning.

7:45-8:30 AMBlumenthal Performing Arts provided breakfast from Uptown Catering.

9-11 AM – Interactive Workshops.  Take a look at the photos below to see the activities the girls participated in during the morning.

Each girl was asked to design a costume for their fictional BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL character.
Once they completed their drawing, they explained how the costume added to the character.

“I’ve come every year and I always try to recruit new people to come with us. We love it!” – Camp Blumenthal participant.

Stage Manager Bonnie Panson took the girls on a backstage tour of BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL. The girls were even allowed to stand on the Belk stage!

“The tech workshop was the best. We got to go on the stage! Awesome!”  – Girl Scout.

Three UNC Charlotte 49ers Cheerleaders spent the morning teaching cheers to the girls.

11 AM – Camp Blumenthal comes to a close.

All in all, the girls, scout leaders, Blumenthal staff and BRING IT ON: THE MUSICAL cast and crew all had a terrific time with Camp Blumenthal.  The Group Sales Department arranged the “camp.”  For more information on Group Sales, CLICK HERE or 704-379-1380.
