If you have not yet read Daisy "Camp" Part 1, please check out this post to set the stage and give context for this day.
After a busy afternoon at the Nature Center, we cleaned up after ourselves and piled back into the van. We headed to my house for dinner and more camp fun. We enjoyed a dinner that consisted of what I consider to be "camp food:" hotdogs, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and pink lemonade. It was quick and easy to prepare which allowed us to spend more time on activities we had planned for the girls.
My husband was willing to review fire safety with the troop. He used Lincoln Logs to teach them how to build a fire.While he was starting a fire in our backyard, the girls completed several activities we borrowed from the Zink the Zebra program. Please see this post to read about the Zink activities our older troop completed last year. We did the same activities with this Daisy troop. The girls loved making their own Zink storybooks.

We ended our evening by toasting marshmallows and eating s'mores near the fire. Since this was our last event of the year, the girls were asked to reflect and share what they liked and disliked about the year's meetings, projects, and events. They were all looking forward to summer vacation...as was I. Please check back in the fall to see what we have planned. Thank you for reading!
