Are picnics, hikes, cook-outs, and camping magic words to you? They are for most girls. They spell fun, adventure, winding trails, the smell of wood-smoke, and nights under canvas. Who does not walk taller and see wider when living in the out-of doors?
The very word “Scout” means a pathfinder, a pioneer, a lover of the open trails. Living in the out-of-doors is an American heritage.
It gets better… . “Adventurer”
An adventurer feels at home out-of-doors. She knows how to build a fire and cook a simple meal. She can give simple first aid treatment, use her compass and jackknife, and send and receive simple messages in Morse code.
*FYI: “Intermediate Girl Scouts are from about ten through thirteen or in the fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth grades.” How many 10-13 year old girls do you know who can build a fire and carry a jackknife? Huh?
