Camping With Girl Scouts

Dorothy Krzesinska

In the summer the Girl Scouts go camping and we sure do do have fun.

We light campfires, put the tents up and when that is down we cook our meals. We then wash dishes in water which we carry in buckets from the lake.

There is a good time for all. We study nature, swim, go rowing and canoeing and ride horseback.

We go to bed early in the evening at about 8 o'clock so that we can get up early in the morning;.

I tell you it is great fun to be a Girl Scout and I wish every girl in America would be one.

If you want to join, you must learn the laws, pass a test, learn signaling.

We have a good captain. Her name is Captain Gielniak.

Her is our cheer as I give it to you.

Hi, Ho, He,
Hi, Ho, He,
Troop 80 -- Troop 80
Girls are we.
Pretty and Good,
Nice and Neat
Troop 80 Girls are hard to beat.
