Summer Day Camps
Day camps are typically three to five-day programs that provide an introductory outdoor experience to girls. Day camps can be held during the day or in the evening and are a great way for girls to gain skills, make friends, and have fun in the summer.
Girl Scout day camps have three major objectives:
- To stimulate enjoyment and appreciation of the out-of-doors through progressively adventurous experiences.
- To provide training in citizenship through give-and-take of community interaction in which each girl has a part in the planning and carrying out of the camp program.
- To contribute to the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of each camper and to help develop in her qualities such as resourcefulness, initiative and confidence.
Day Camps are a wonderful opportunity for older girls (Cadettes and up) to earn their LiA (Leader in Action) and work towards earning their PA (Program Aide) pin.
Day Camps are sponsored by individual Service Units. You can find Day Camp opportunities via your Service Unit or listed on the council-wide calendar in the spring.
