hero camp 2020-01-01

Are you ready for your best summer yet? At Girl Scout camp we believe each camp season brings out the best you, yet. With each new experience and opportunity to grow, we are adding must haves to our world changing, kindness sharing, next level skills.

At camp, that means getting comfortable meeting new friends, finding your truth and learning how to express it and deciding to be a good steward to this big, beautiful world. That’s right! Camp is a bear necessity – to forward thinking, daily courage, a strong female voice, to Girl Scouts. Because at camp, she will be a part of 100 year old Girl Scout traditions. She will build skills in the outdoors that show her that she can crush it. And, she will feel the encouragement of an all-girl environment from her Girl Scout sisters across Georgia.

Help her build a strong foundation of go getting, innovating, risk-taking and leading by choosing camp as part of her best self: bear necessities.
