Annual Family Camping Trip – FIRESIDE

DSC_0310
It’s time to finish with our camping “series”. Today we take it home with our FIRESIDE activities!

We pride ourselves on being a troop full of tradition. We start our meetings with the promise and law and we end with a friendship circle. We celebrate Juliette Gordon Low’s (the founder of Girl Scouts) birthday every year and end our year with a bridging ceremony and court of awards. So, needless to say we also always, always, always retire a flag honorably during our camping trip.

“The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.” (The United States Flag Code)

It is a quiet event, where every girl has a chance to participate.

We also, of course, use our fire pit for FUN…What’s a camp out without S’mores?!?! We enjoyed the super yummy treats with several types of marshmallows and different candy bars! Have you ever had a toasted coconut marshmallow with salted caramel chocolate square? How about a PB&J with strawberry marshmallows and Reeces Peanut Butter Cups? We suggest you branch outside of old faithful on occasion and mix it up!!
