    SUMMER CAMPGirl Scout2015

  • Girl Scout camping is an experience that provides creative, educational opportunities in groups living in the outdoors. Its purpose is to use the Girl Scout Program, trained leadership, and the resources of the natural surroundings to contribute to each campers mental, social, physical, and spiritual growth.

    Day camp is an experience for girls from different troops and groups to meet outdoors each day. Girls attend as individual campers and are placed in units according to their grade in the fall. Experience day camp and make new friends!

    Resident camp is a camping experience for girls to live in the outdoors for three or more days. Girls from different troops and/or groups sign up as individual campers and are placed in units according to their desired program activity. Girls and their counselors plan activities, taking advantage of the opportunities available to them.

    Troops Love Camping (TLC)... is an experience for the whole troop! Want to share summer camp with your Girl Scout friends? Then this is defi nitely for you! We will supply food, supplies, and activities for your troop.

    Send a girl to campCamp scholarshipsIt is our goal to continue to provide opportunities for girls who want to go to camp. Camp scholarships provide this life-changing experience for girls who may not otherwise be able to participate because of their economic circumstances. Contributions to camp scholarships make it possible for all girls throughout the 45 counties we serve to attend camp and have the same opportunities and experiences regardless of their ability to pay. In addition camp scholarships help underwrite the cost of camp activities, keeping fees low for all girls.

    With your help, we will continue to give Girl Scouts the opportunities they need to become the leaders they want to be today, and the leaders our community needs them to be tomorrow.

    $1,000 = One week of resident camp for four girls
