It may be cold in most of the country, but now is the time to think about signing your daughter up for Girl Scout summer camp. Troops do not meet over the summer, and Girl Scout summer camp offers girls different kinds of scouting opportunities.
The all girl atmosphere is conducive to girls developing strong leadership skills. They spend a lot of time outdoors learning about the environment and other outdoor skills. The leaders at camp are CPR trained and background checked.
There are different kinds of camp for girls kindergarten through 11th grade, ranging from day, weekend, and overnight. If this is your daughter’s first time away, she can request to bunk with one buddy.
Financial aid is available to those who qualify. Because it is on a first come, first served, basis, you will need to go to your local Council’s website and download the necessary forms. Act quickly because scholarships are limited.
