From Daycation at Camp Mira Sol to Camp Metro at the West Side Girl Scout Leadership Center to resident camp at Camp La Jita — there’s sure to be a fantastic campertunity for all girls!
Summer 2014 promises an abundance of choices and experiences to match every girl’s wishes and interests. Girl Scout camp is a place where a girl can make new friends, explore the world around her and discover something she can’t wait to do again. It’s a place where transformation happens. In an environment created just for her, a girl learns real life skills and develops self-esteem while gaining a sense of independence and community.
Whether she attends camp daily or spends the whole week away from home, Girl Scout camp helps a girl discover her potential, dreams and aspirations and builds a skill set she can use for success today and in her future. Campers will discover, connect and even take action on issues and challenges important to them.
