Girl Scout Camp registration open

January 27, 2019

FORT WAYNE – It might be the middle of winter, but it’s not too early to start making plans for summer. Girls can “Imagine, Explore, and Achieve” their wildest dreams at Girl Scout summer camps. Many Girl Scouts are currently selling cookies to earn funds to help defray the cost of attending camp. Girls of all ages can choose from these weekend or weeklong sessions, mini camps or community camps:

• At weeklong camps, girls can choose a Classic or Horse option. Activities include water Quidditch, Zumba, archery, swimming, crafts, badge opportunities, boating, horseback riding and STEM projects.

• At Horse Camp, girls groom, tack, feed and ride our stable of 12 horses. They will also have plenty of time to explore traditional camp activities at this residential camp.

• New this year is Teen Week: June 30-July 5. Teens (completed Grade 6 and up) can choose Classic Camp, Horse Camp or Glamping. Glampers sleep indoors, prepare healthy meals and practice yoga.

• At Space Camp, a weeklong day camp, girls explore outer space and earn space-science badges. Girls will also round out their days with archery, low ropes, nature hikes, zip line and climbing wall.

• Leadership opportunities are available for Counselors in Training, Wranglers in Training and Program Aides.

Camp slots fill up quickly so don’t delay! Girls do not have to be a Girl Scout to register. Learn more at: http://www.girlscoutsnorthernindiana-michiana.org/en/camp/camp-properties.html
