Our First Camp Fire Camp :)

Ashley and I had our very first camp with Camp Fire. We all camped at Lake Murray group camp one, Each group was assigned a cabin for the weekend. since Ashley and I were the only ones from our group to attend we got a small cabin all to ourselves.We had a great weekend, We had so much fun and met so many great people and made so many new friends.

We got there on friday at 5:30pm. got settled into our cabins and we had our little carnival at 8pm then we sang some songs and returned to our cabins for the night.

saturday we had flag raising, breakfast, craft class (turkey), nature class (tracks book), fitness (zumba which was sooooo fun), BB gun shooting class, then we had dinner, lowering the flag, some free time which Ashley I joined some other girls in their cabin and they danced, jumped rope, painted fingernails. Then that night we had campfire council, a traditional even for camp fire, everyone walked in silence to the water front and we circled the camp fire and even sat around for lots of fun camp fire songs.

Sunday was flag raising, breakfast, then canoeing, I had to say Ashley really surprised me, She's always so scared of trying new things, I thought for sure she wouldn't canoe but she did and she LOVED it :) then we did our flag lowering and it was time for home :) We were sad to leave, We had such a great time :)

Here are some photo's from our awesome weekend!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time! I was in Girl Scouts as a kid and loved every minute of it. And yay for trying new things!
