LA.Comfidential notes that Girl Scout Troop 171 is taking a page out of Phyllis Neffler's playbook and giving their squad of young ladies a different kind of survival training. One mother, who happens to be president of local spaDermalogica, is throwing what we can only hope is a beauty boot camp at the end of which the Santa Monica girls will get their clear-skin badge.

Taking cues from the Shelley Long/Craig T. Nelson flick isn't that uncommon amongst today's girl scouts. Even if you can't wrangle a day in the spa, you can throw a Troop Beverly Hills event theme party complete with games and recipes and lessons on inner beauty.

In other Wilderness Girl news, Jenny Lewis and her band, Rilo Kiley, will be at Coachella this weekend and, bonus, it might actually be pleasant weather on Empire Polo Field this year.
