Navigating Challenges and Learning Leadership at Camp Conowingo

Maryland's ABC News 2 reports that Girl Scouts descended on 600 acres of land at Camp Conowingo for eight weeks during this summer.

The camp allows girls to sharpen their horseback riding skills, enjoy canoeing/kayaking and learning how to cook outdoors. The girls learn to navigate the challenges, adventures and surprises that come with outdoor camping. It's not all about fun and games. The camp experience allows the girls to develop new skills, build courage, confidence and character.

"I would like for them to walk away with more confidence. Most of these girls have never been in the woods or outside like this. It's building a lot of character for them. They are feeling so good about themselves," said Gail Edwards, Camp Director.
