The Benefits of Summer Camp

A camp experience:

  • Enhances teamwork and social skills through community living and group play
  • Develops skills, knowledge and self-confidence through exciting, challenging and fun activities
  • Strengthens self-reliance and independent living skills by being away from home
  • Provides girls with exciting and enriching opportunities for personal growth.

 

Within a safe and supportive environment, campers participate in activities that build self-esteem and provide a sense of accomplishment, and increase awareness and responsibility toward the environment. And, of course, girls have FUN!

Our camps are designated to provide small group interactions where girls have the opportunity to learn more about themselves and others, develop their leadership and teamwork skills, meet new people and make lasting friendships.

And, at resident camp there is an added benefit from the extended time that girls participate in their program. By living away from home, girls increase their self-reliance and independent living skills. The extended time also allows for enhanced skill development in activities.

Summer camp also provides girls with guidance by positive adult role models. Staff members work together to provide a caring and encouraging environment for all girls. Camp programs are based on Girl Scout philosophy and are appropriate to the age, interests and abilities of the campers.
