I just spent the morning sewing a year’s worth of emblems on the girls’ Camp Fire vests. The emblems are a neat thing for the kids. They like the tangible recognition of their accomplishments. They were very interested in helping me place them on the vest and tugged the thread as I sewed them on. We earned emblems for almost every outing, including the water treatment plant tour and a trip to the Children’s Museum in Pittsburgh. They also earned emblems for some of their individual efforts, including ballet and tap classes. In addition to the fun ones on the back of their vests, they earned two Trail emblems this last year. One was Trail to the Environment, and the other was Trail to Creativity.
