Girl Scout troop 1021 visited 5 Wits today. The staff there were great and all the girls had a great time. It was a fun way to introduce team building. I would recommend this to other troops. Thank you 5 wits!!
My daughter and I had a great time celebrating her 14th birthday in Pharoah's tomb! Thanks for a great day :)
Perfect score
