Camp 2015: Camp Rules!
Girl Scout camp is where your girl shines. She grows into a leader while experiencing the best parts of being a kid: playing (and learning) in groups where everyone belongs, trying tons of new things, and exploring the natural world, always in a safe and fun setting. And that rules!
At camp, your girl can be a scientist, archer, actress, environmentalist, cowgirl, artist or adventurer. If she thinks swimming rules, or knitting, or astronomy, she’s free to try it at camp. Plus, she makes friends with
girls her age who let her know that she rules, too.
All girls welcome
If your camper’s not yet a Girl Scout, no problem! Any girl entering grades K-12 can attend; non-members just add $15 to regular camp fees to cover the annual cost of membership.
Enjoy all the fun of camp without spending the night. Girls get a taste of camp, make new friends and work toward badges. Each day camp features a program theme with specialized activities.
