Three Reasons Girl Scout Summer Camp Is the Best


Where can your girl have fun while growing her confidence and leadership skills? Girl Scout camp! Beyond the s’mores, games, and songs, our camps provide a variety of experiences that help girls develop invaluable life skills. 

Here’s why our summer camp is the best place for her to unleash her inner G.I.R.L (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.

1. It’s an all-girl space. Research shows that girls feel more confident and learn better when they’re surrounded by other girls and that in coed environments, boys receive more praise, which makes girls question their abilities. When boys aren’t around, girls take more risks because they don’t have to prove anything. Girl Scout camp provides a safe, all-girl space for your girl to feel free to be herself, speak openly, and make lasting friendships.

2. It’s girl-led. At Girl Scout camp, girls at every age have plenty of opportunities to develop their leadership skills. For starters, they get to create their own adventures—right down to the what, when, where, how, and why. Having ownership of their experiences empowers girls to take the lead in all areas of their lives.

3. She learns by doing. By trying different activities, such as boating, archery, hiking, and crafting, your girl stretches her potential and develops her abilities at camp. She’ll tackle challenges and overcome self-doubts, which will give her the confidence to handle anything life throws her way.

You may think you’re just sending your girl to camp, but you’re actually helping her grow into a strong, capable, and confident leader. Sign her up for Girl Scout camp today!
