  • Short Summary

    American girls go on a camping holiday - they walk, swim and cook in the open air.

  • Description

Nowadays, however, hundreds go "hiking." L/S of group of hikers running towards the camera through a wood. They are youngish girls in some kind of uniform - probably the American equivalent of the brownies or girl guides.
