For more than 80 Shelton girls, boys and adults, last week was spent not only in dreaming around a campfire - but cooking, singing, playing and, learning. The Girl Scout Day Camp at Mason Lake provided the opportunity for all to see and try new skills, new crafts, new ways in tile out of doors. A staff of 18 adults and aides helped the 66 day campers during the 5 days of camping at the Simpson Recreation area. For many, the experience of pitching, living in, and striking wall tents was a first. For others it was new to build a fire, cook over it, and wash dishes in a sanitary but primitive way. For some it was their first opportunity to plan menus, try out new recipes, learn to use knives, axes and saws properly. There were new songs and games, lashing of primitive furniture, daily swimming, nature hikes, a talk by a forest ranger, training in first aid, rock painting, leaf printing, and a world of nature to be explored. What will they remember most? The problems of cooking with dried beans over open campfires will stand out for some. The game "Dr. Knickerbocker" for others Or perhaps sitting around a camp fire on a gravel bar beside a stream, and singing along with a guitar. Or will it he watching the hummingbirds dart through the trees - the swimming making costumes of native materials - "Some-mores" - building fires .... spending a night Hurry! Supplies may be limited!
