A tegular Girl Scout camp schedule was carried out. Divided into patrols each with a name taken from nature, the scouts started their camp ac tivities with revilie at 7 00 a. m. and went through until taps. Nature work, swimming, first aid. and some hand craft were the principal subjects ol interest, and what is often considered the unattractive side of camp cook ing dishwashing and outdoor chores was done in a happy spirit of co operation.

The leaders W'to delighted over the interest that the camp engendered About forty interested friends visited the ramp and enjoyed the camp fire programs.
