My one hundred and four and a half year old grandmother's life was revolutionized by Girl Scouting. Venturing forth from the confines and strictures of the Bronx and setting up a rustic campsite in the wilderness was immensely freeing. All the fresh air,traipsing through the woods,splashing about in icy waters,and traversing lakes and rivers via canoe were an invigorating and refreshing tonic to consticted city life! Discovering and exploring the natural world- how exhilarating! My grandmother's passion for the outdoors has lasted a lifetime.
