I can't remember exactly what year I first joined the Scouts. It might've been 1976 as a Brownie. I was a Girl Scout up until early 1983. I remember camping trips to Camp Hoover in northern NJ and one at Camp Kettle Run. We went on trips to the Bronx Zoo, Washington D.C and Virginia. I was kind of jealous of one girl who had alot of badges. I still have my sash. The sad thing is that I heard that Girl Scout uniforms will soon no longer even be made in the U.S.A.
