Hiking with seven 11 yr olds

That's what I'll be doing this June. Any advice? The girls have all decided to spend a day in the mountains. Actually to be honest, they wanted to camp overnight but the whole idea just sounds way too dirty for me, and neither of us Girl Scout Troop leaders has or wants to get our outdoor training, so we're going to use our mom-mind-powers to get the girls to decide they'd rather go up for the day, and buy matching T-shirts with the proceeds from their cookie sale.

So- we can still do the camp fire, roast marshmallows, play in the woods and in the lake, and get just as dirty as we wanna get, but we don't have to sleep that way and we don't need to get a special license from the Girl Scouts.
