Dear Scout:

I have never slept in a tent before.  What are tents like at night?


Signed, 

Indoor Girl

Dear Indoor Girl,

Tents are the greatest!  They are just like dog houses, only bigger.  You are cozy inside a tent, but get to hear all the cool night sounds, like the soft wind and the owl hoots.  And your counselors are near, so they can pet you if you start chasing squirrels in your dreams.

Your Camping Friend,

Dear Scout:

I think it would be fun to go to Camp Scoutshire's Got Talent or Kamp Kiwanis' Got Talent camp sessions, but I don't want to be judged or made fun of.  What  happens there?


Signed,   ATeensy Bit Nervous


Dear Bit,

Our Got Talent! camp sessions aren't about competition or judging - they are about having fun while learning about being on stage, and then you get to show your parents what you learned!  There are even voice lessons!  I learned how to project my bark so I sound really big, and how to look pitiful so I get lots of pets and treats.

Dear Scout:

I have never been to overnight camp.  Will I miss my family too much to have a good time?


Signed, 
Don't Know if this is Such a Good Idea

Dear Know
I remember when I was a puppy and my mom would go away to nap or take a walk.  I really missed her and even whimpered a little.  My puppy littermates told me what to do!  They said to think about my favorite parts of my day, and to tell MYSELF the happy story I would get to tell my MOM when I saw her again.  It helped a lot!

Dear Scout:

I will be going to Mermaids with a friend who is a better swimmer than I am.  I'm afraid I can't keep up!  What should I do?


Signed, 
All Wet

Dear All,

Don't Worry. Soon after you get to camp, the counselors will see how well you swim, so you can have fun learning with other girls who are about the same as you.  At Mermaids or Swimmerettes, you will become a better swimmer and learn new strokes

Personally, I think all you need to know is how to dog paddle
