Piggott area Girl Scouts took part in a campout and day camp June 28 and 29 at Heritage Park in Piggott. Friday night Junior Girl Scouts, Cadets and Brownies camped at the park, and Saturday morning they were joined by Daisy's for the day camp.

Training sessions and craft activities were held at Heritage Park during the morning hours, with the Girl Scouts visiting the two local museums during the afternoon.

While at the Matilda and Karl Pfeiffer Museum the Girl Scouts were treated to a tour and presentations from trustees Jim Richardson and Don Roeder. Richardson spoke to the group about organic objects, such as the trees, shrubs, bushes and grasses that occupy the grounds. On the other hand, Roeder reviewed inanimate objects such as the minerals and gems found in the museum's collection.

While visiting the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum the scouts were given guided tours of both the barn studio and the main house by Director Adam Long. During their visit they also had a chance to tour the grounds of the local museum.

This marks the third time this year a group of scouts has taken part in such an event, as both Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts attending during the spring.

The local Girl Scouts taking part in the weekend's activities included Cadets from Troop #3141, Junior Girl Scouts from Troop #3143, Brownies from Troop #3384 and Daisy Scouts from Troop #3385.
