The clouds at Camp Timbercrest looked threatening, but thankfully it did not rain on the first day of camp. At around 1 pm, Camp Timbercrest was flooded with Girl Scouts and their families.
Once everyone was settled into their units and troops, every Girl Scout completed the Swim Test and was given a colored cap based on their swimming level. The least skilled swimmers received a red cap, the middle leveled swimmers received a yellow cap, and the best swimmers are labeled as blue caps.
After the Ready to Ride program and CITs (Counselors in Training) completed their swim test, they headed over to the barn to learn the basics about horseback riding.
The night continued with dinner and a birthday celebration to 10-year-old Rowan.
The night then concluded with Opening Fire with songs, laughter, and memories flourishing.
