There was also an ambassador Girl Scout on hand, too, helping the leaders with the different activities.  
They worked on badges, crafts, took hikes, and sang songs.

And after dinner had been cooked, served, and eaten . . . 
It was award time.  For Daisy to Cadet to Leader the day was a success ... smiles abounded!

We hope to host future Girl Scout counsel-wide events.  They did a great job of enjoying the Camp and cleaning up, too!  Thanks, ladies!
