A very interesting lizard got the girls attention during the hike as well.\u00a0As the hike ended, a little free time was enjoyed on the playground.\r\n\r\nNext came a little rest as the girls listened to a bit of information on their founder Juliette Gordon Low. Her birthday was on Halloween, so the girls celebrated early with cupcakes in her honor.\r\n\r\nThen they enjoyed sandwiches or hotdogs for lunch and got back to working on several badges and a bit of journey work. By mid-afternoon it was time to take down tents and clean up the area. A great time had come to an end.\r\n\r\nThe girls were also happy about having earned several badges while attending camporee that will show on their badge sashes or vests some of the activities they completed at camp.\r\n\r\nMany thanks to Dominion Valley Park for allowing the Girl Scouts to use the park for camping. Plans are to camp for a full weekend in the spring. Thanks to all the leaders and parents who helped make this camping experience a memorable time for the girls.
