Girl Scouts in the Cole County area went back to basics this week as they celebrated their annual Twilight Camp at the Jefferson City Jaycees Fairgrounds.

The camp, with the 2012 theme of "Back to the Basics," commemorated the 100-year anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. To return to the Girl Scouts' roots, this year's Twilight Camp focused on historical scouting skills that the original Girl Scouts would have practiced.
