Anna Goes to Camp
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Camp Skawana was an all-girls camp in the Cascade Mountains. Anna Black went to Camp Skawana with her Camp Fire group last summer. She had never been to camp before. She was just a little scared. Anna knew her friends would be there. Her Mom and Dad brought her up on Sunday.
 
2     Anna brought lots of camping gear. She brought her sleeping bag and flashlight. She brought her camping clothes and toothbrush. Anna also brought a bag of snacks.
 
3     Anna and her group did not get a cabin. They got the Yak-i-Nak Teepee on the side of Badger Hill. It looked like a regular teepee, but it had wooden floors. The teepee had cots for each of the girls. One cot was for the camp counselor, Pam. There was a flap that could be fastened as the door. The path to the teepee was steep. Anna was happy she got the teepee this year.
 
4     After the day's activities, all lights had to be out at ten o'clock. There was no electricity in the teepees. Anna had to use a flashlight after dark. Anna and the girls told camp stories until everyone fell asleep. Anna did not sleep well her first night at Camp Skawana. She thought she heard sounds in the night.
 
5     On Monday, the girls went hiking and backpacking to Badger Falls. That night, everyone sat around the campfire and sang songs. Anna was tired. She was happy when she got to her cot. "Maybe I can get some sleep tonight," thought Anna.
