You should also count among your companions two or more camp

directors--possibly mothers of the girls, teachers, or older friends of

whom the parents approve--who will enter heartily into all phases of

outdoor life and while really being one with you in sport and work, will

at the same time keep careful oversight and assure protection.

Avoid localities where there is a possibility of tramps or undesirable

characters of any description, and do not wander from camp alone or

unaccompanied by one of the directors. If your camp is in the forest it

will be the part of wisdom to secure also a reliable guide who knows the

forest ways.
