TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A traveling ninja course at Girl Scout Camp Sycamore is giving the campers a fun challenge while helping them gain confidence. Deb Thomas is the camp director and she says she sees the confidence in action.

“We're all about giving them some risks to do, like not too big of a risk but little challenges like this builds their confidence,” she said.

Duke Energy employees assembled this course that is traveling to various camps around the state. The course includes challenges such as a rope course and a rock wall that the campers can take on.

The course will remain at Camp Sycamore Valley for the next two weeks for the campers, who range in age from as young as the 2nd grade to middle school. In just a few short weeks, the whole family will have the opportunity to take on the course.

“After this has been on tour with our camps, it’s going to end up at the state fairground,” said Thomas. “So anybody who comes to the state fair can go to our building and they can use it then.”

The course will be available for all to try in the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana building during the entirety of the state fair, open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
