Indian Maidens

Indian Maidens is the mom/daughter version of Indian Princesses and Indian Guides. It is a great group for moms and daughters. Unlike Girl Scouts where there are one or two moms involved as the leaders, all Indian Maiden events include all moms with their daughters. We go on three campouts (in cabins!) a year to YMCA camps in the area. The campouts include great activities such as kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, archery, various arts and crafts, camp fires, and sledding in the winter. We also have meetings on the first Friday evening of every month in the OMS commons, and there are a few events sprinkled through the year, such as caroling in December, walking in the Memorial Day parade in May, and a Feed My Starving Children event. We would love to see a few new faces. If you are interested and want to learn more about this great group, please reach out to us: Christina Perez (cbperez128@gmail.com) or Jen Hasche (jhasche@gmail.com). Signup for the next school year begins in July.
