GIRL SCOUT CAMP PART 1

Last weekend I took the troop to Girl Scout Camp.
We had so much fun. The girls thought they had to work to much. They are treated so BAD :(
They had to gather the wood, help cook, and clean up after themselves.
Just horrible!

We had a picnic lunch when we arrived.

Go on a nature hike

Getting the whistle blowing out of their systems. The whistle's are for emergency only.

Too cool for school!
In this photo, Hipper, Skipper, Snoopy, Fred, Bubbles, May May and George.
We all chose camp names. I was named Preacher. Fitting since it always seems I am preaching to the choir when with these girls.

Learning the GS dishwashing technique.

I was so proud of our first fire! I talked to Scott and was bragging that I made my first fire and he made fun of me by asking if we had to rub 2 sticks together. No we used a firestarter (piece of taper candle wrapped in wax paper). The girls were whining the smoke was to much for them. Our little troop might be more accepting of hotels and fireplaces.

Dunk bags with our eating utensils. We learned knots so we could hang our clothesline.
I was exhausted on Sunday but we had a really fun trip and the girls learned lots of outdoor skills.
There is still more to share so I will do another post soon.

Looks like fun! Cute idea to hang the dishes on the clothes line.

I enjoyed your post about your Mammie. A very nice tribute. Thank you for sharing with us.
