Group photo: Girl Scout Day Camp 1964

I remember going to Girl Scout Day Camp at Economy Park in the 1960s:

Getting on a school bus with other Girl Scouts and leaders for the trip to and from the park and singing Girl Scout favorites: "There was a farmer who had a horse and Bingo was his name-o," "We are the pioneers, jolly old pioneers," "Great big gobs of greasy grimy gopher's guts."

And at camp: doing crafts; hiking; cooking Girl Scout recipes (I still have the one for no-bake cookies!) for lunch over a fire with wood we'd collected; sleeping overnight in the barn.
