1 Caroline was camping for the first time with her Girl Scout troop. At a previous meeting, the girls and their leaders had discussed what to bring. Now that they had arrived at their actual destination, a campsite at a campground, they began pitching tents, unrolling sleeping bags, and setting up the general area.
2 The troop spent the afternoon hiking and fishing. For dinner, they ate their bagged meals. Then Caroline and the other girls grew very excited. They were about to prepare their first campfire together. Caroline couldn't wait. She knew the group would use the campfire to make s'mores tonight and then breakfast in the morning. The campfire would also keep them warm tonight and create quite the atmosphere for stories and a sing-along this evening.
3 Before the campfire was started, Mrs. Hansen gave the girls the safety rundown. "First of all," she began, "we checked the fire danger level when we entered the campground. We're fine tonight, but if the posted level were dangerous, we would not be having a campfire. We also wouldn't start a campfire on a windy day because sparks can travel far. We double-checked with the ranger because we wanted to make sure we didn't need a permit. Sometimes you do.
