Let the girl in your life craft her own adventure this summer. From directing your own movie to creating chemistry experiments and learning fun survival skills, girls will have a rewarding experience whether they come for one week or all seven. Camping is a great way for girls to explore leadership, build skills, develop new friendships and be a part of the great outdoors!   Girls do not have to be a current Girl Scout to attend camp.
