My Girl Scout Beginnings
Sheridan held a day camp each summer for Brownies and Intermediates. The camp name was and still is Camp Rowena. I attended Camp Rowena two summers. Day camp was our first introduction to girls and leaders from other troops. Also the first experience we had had with Cadette and Senior Girl Scouts, who served as Camp Aids. Intermediates could spend one night at camp. The overnight was extra special second year I attended. It was such fun cooking out, exploring, singing around the campfire, roasting marshmallows and we got to sleep in a bunk house!
A Few of My Favorite Memories
My most memorable campout was at Tie Flume Campground. The badge theme was Local Lore and the girls wanted to learn the Big Horn Mountain tie flume history. My grandfather had worked on the flume during its years of operation. I had heard many stories and hiked the area with him. My troop and I spent the day exploring the flume up and down the East Fork of South Tongue River, [which was] a fun learning experience for all of us. The following three years I took my troop camping at Owens Creek, Sibley Lake, and Story. Those lone troop campout were all exciting and fun.
