More than 100 girls went to Camp Tapawingo in Metamora for all sorts of girl scout goodies. Girls got their faces painted and toured the camps stables, learning about the horses.
Central Illinois is home to 22,000 Girl Scouts. Leader Kate Peters said events like the Fall Family Festival help strengthen the organization.
"It gives them the opportunity to meet girls in other troops. It gives them an opportunity to see behind the scenes what it takes to run this type of facility and so it's just another learning experience that they might not otherwise have had," Peters said.
Peters said the fall festival is just one event out of many celebrating a century of Girl Scouts.
