Camping is one of the great pleasures of life for those of us who enjoy being outdoors. Fresh air, a cool breeze, sleeping under the stars while you listen to the chirping of crickets, are all things that make us feel at one with nature. Camping is also a rite of passage for many children involved with conservation groups and youth organizations. The Girl Scouts of the United States of America commonly plans overnight outings to campsites. A small group of these girls even got the chance to camp out on the White House lawn, an event hosted by then-First Lady Michelle Obama.
What was supposed to be just another of these commonplace events became a scene of unimaginable horror for a group of girls at Camp Scott in Oklahoma on the early morning of June 13, 1977. Though camp counselors slept just a few feet away, no one realized anything was wrong until it was far too late and three girls lost their lives.
