There is plenty of research to show that spending time in nature can nurture creativity and healthy social development, and help girls gain the skills to seek and conquer challenges. At our Council's upcoming camp opportunities, girls can discover and connect with the natural world, and learn how to take action like a G.I.R.L.! Whether in a tent or a cabin, with fellow Girl Scout sisters, Council staff or fantastic volunteers, a summer of adventure awaits.  


GSCCS Camp Exploration Awaits!
