GREEN — Troop No. 233 is pictured at right at Camp Y-Noah for the Fall Service Unit Camp Out with the Highland Girl Scouts in Medina County.

The girls experienced horseback riding, rock wall climbing with high ropes, archery, nature crafts, a night hike with echo-location demonstration, a zip line and low ropes.

The girls also shared ashes from a Sir Baden-Powell fire ring with Sharon Elementary School’s Brownie Troop during an Ashes Ceremony as part of their Junior Badge work.

During this night of mentoring the Brownies, the girls participated in a sing-along, including the tradition of making rain with hand percussion.

After celebrating Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday and the 100-year anniversary of Girl Scouting, the evening ended with the singing of Taps.
