Girl Scout campfire

I ended up not taking my guitar to my daughter’s girl scout camp. I figured there would be skits and sing alongs with the other troops. Plus the car was filling up fast with the girls’ gear. And I was right, partly.
Most of the evenings were spent with all the other troops doing slits and singalongs in the ampitheater with all the other scouts. It was hilarious and fun, but my guitar playing would not have been a part of it.
However one night was spent eating s’mores as a troop on our own. Luckily another parent had brought their acoustic guitar and was playing campfire songs for the girls to sing.
As all guitarists do, we chatted briefly about what guitars we have, what we like to play, how long we’ve been playing, and of course share the guitar. It was so much fun! At one point all 13 girls in my daughter’s troop were standing around the campfire sing “Firework” by Katy Perry at the top of their lungs. They giggled through “Manah Manah” by the Muppets. And took turns making up lyrics about camp to the tune of John Lee Hooker’s “Boom Boom Boom.”
Guitars are awesome, but kids are amazing! A big thank you to the parent who brought their guitar AND shared it.
