I’m 10 years old and I’m in fifth grade. I’ve been a Girl Scout ever since first grade. When I was in third grade, I went to Camp Conestoga for one night with my troop. It was so much fun.

When I was in fourth grade, my same troop went to Camp Conestoga for the day, to do the ziplLine and canoeing.

I had a soccer game that same day, so I was pretty bummed that I wouldn’t be able to go. But then my mom told me what time my game was and that since Camp Conestoga was only about 30 minutes away, she would be able to drive me out to meet my troop after my soccer game was over.

I was so happy because I didn’t have to choose between my soccer game and my Girl Scout friends!

When I got there my troop already started doing the zipline. Good thing I got there when I did, because I was just in time to be the last person to go ziplining from my troop! I loved it a buch!

Then my troop went canoeing down at the camp lake. One of my best friends, Kaighin and I were partners. It was pretty scary, I was glad that Kaighin and I were partners, because she was really tough and I was really tough to help each other when I was trying to get back in the canoe.

She helped me, and when she got her oar stuck in the mud, I helped her get it out.

I also went to Camp Conestoga for the day, a few weeks after my school troop did. We went horseback riding and we played on a slip and slide. It was so much fun.

Please keep the Girl Scout camps open so that not only I but others girls can go to camp also and have the great adventures I had.
