On Oct. 5-7, 2012, Girl Scouts from Troop 3785 went to a “mom and me” weekend at Camp Wooten, just outside of Pomeroy, Wash. They spent 2 nights and 3 days exploring, making crafts, swimming, and meeting new friends. We were the only troop from Idaho, the rest were from the Tri-Cities, Wash. area. This is the second year for our girls to attend camp and they are already looking forward to next year. If anyone is interested in Girl Scouts, it is not too late to join. Please call Heather Lightfield, 1-208, 816-1452 or Shari Chaffee, 962-3559. Shown are Kylie Castleberry and Ciara Chaffee in back and Lily Castlebaerry, Hannah Medley. Violet Berry, and Leann Lightfield in front. They were cabin mates for the weekend. They did a skit called the Candy Store, sang Grace before meals, learned a new game called Korcal and did one last celebration for the Girl Scouts 100 years with a big Birthday Bash.
