The girls of Fireside Scouts Troop #182 are lost. Their day trip to Yellowstone National Park went terribly wrong, and they don't have a scout leader or a map. To make matters worse, they're at the mercy of a careless narrator who didn't go to the bathroom before the play started. How will they survive the rain and the dark? Can they find something to eat before something finds them to eat? Will their story unravel at the hands of a stalling stage manager and two talking trees? After letting off a few ear-splitting screams, these spunky girls gather their wits and their Fireside Scout Handbooks, and prepare themselves to earn the most difficult merit badge of all: The Red Merit Badge of Courage.
