Taking Leadership to the Outdoors
Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, and develop a deep appreciation for nature. Whether they go for a day, week, or longer, Girl Scout camp gives girls an opportunity to grow, explore, and have fun under the guidance of caring, trained adults. For many girls, camp is the first opportunity they have to experience archery, horseback riding, and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programming. Every girl deserves a chance to camp!
