50 lucky Girl Scouts had the opportunity to spend a night camping on the historic White House lawn. President Obama and the First Lady invited Girl Scouts from West Virginia, Virginia, Washington, DC and Oklahoma to have an overnight camping trip on the South lawn. Hit the jump to read more about this historic event.

As the honorary president of the Girl Scouts, the First Lady invited 50 fourth grade Girl Scouts to spend the evening camping on the South lawn of the White House. This is the first time anyone has ever camped on the perfectly groomed lawn. This camp out was all apart of Mrs. Obama’s Let’s Move campaign. The campaign is all about taking a stand against childhood obesity and this particular event targeted the component that encourages children and their parents to spend more time outdoors.

The First Lady welcomed the girls by saying, “This is something you can tell your kids and your grandkids,” she added as she stood among the girls and their tents, “Do you understand the impact, the importance of this moment today? It’s exciting.”

The girls spent their time with the FLOTUS by singing campfire songs, practicing pitching tents and tying knots. They even got a lesson about star gazing by NASA astronaut Cady Coleman.

If this night was not already awesome the Girl Scouts even got a visit from President Obama. The girls were disappointed when he said he had to leave to work, but gave them a group hug before he made his exit.

The weather was not no their side however and the girls were forced to evacuate the lawn due to a storm. According to White House officials the girls slept in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
