Camp songs

The high wire has been taken down, but the action hasn't stopped at Niagara Falls. The Girl Scouts of Western New York will "Rock the Falls" on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon, on Goat Island in Niagara Falls State Park. Tourists may be surprised to come upon a concert, and the sing-along includes Caitlin Koch with the Jamie Moses Band, the Nassau County Girls Scouts Chorus and Buffalo's Ladies First Jazz Band, performing al fresco above the sound of the cataract. They promise fun activities for all ages. Cost is $10 for the event, marking 100 years of Girl Scouting in America. Check out www.gswny.org for more.
