Girl Scouting at Home: Create Your Own Campfire Silly Story

Share the fun of Girl Scout Camp with your family! Girl Scouts of Colorado Camp Staff has developed a series of activities you can do with your family at home. Or, you can even share them with your Girl Scout sisters virtually. Today,  you’re going to create your own campfire silly story. Get inspired by this silly story written by Obi Joe Obi Joe, Tomahawk Ranch Camp Director:

It was evening at camp and the sun was beginning to set. My friends and I decided to have a campfire and roast the most delicious marshmallows. While roasting over the fire, a rouge spark from the fire flew straight towards me! “Ouch!” I exclaimed. My counselor Sunshine rushed towards me to make sure I was ok. Luckily, I wasn’t hurt to badly. To brighten my spirits, Sunshine decided to lead us in The Princess Pat around the campfire, it is by far my favorite Girl Scout song! After enjoying our delicious marshmallows, we safely extinguished the campfire and decided to call it a night. Can’t wait for our next camping adventure!

We created it into a silly story for you to do with friends and family!

After enjoying our [previous adjective] [previous plural noun], we [adverb] extinguished the campfire and decided to call it a [time of day]. Can’t wait for our next camping adventure!
