It's Your Summer - Camp It!

Thirteen Girl Scout Councils have been awarded the 2011 It's Your Story - Tell It! Summer Camp Grant, made possible by Dove, to implement aMUSE, the newest Junior leadership journey during day and resident camps. Girl Scouts of the USA and Dove have been partnering since 2002 to promote self confidence among girls first through the uniquelyME! program and most recently through It's Your Story - Tell It! Self-esteem is a natural byproduct of this latest leadership journey series because through storytelling and creative expression girls gain a better understanding of themselves and their potential. Juniors will take the journey and have a great time learning about the many roles girls and women play in the world and the limitless possibilities available to them when they bust stereotypes and challenge themselves and other girls to continue to try out new roles. In doing so, these girl scouts will develop the confidence they need to be leaders in their own lives and the the world.
