2014CampGuide cover

2014 Camp Guide is here! Guides were mailed one per registered Girl Scout household the week of March 10. 

 

From Daycation at Mira Sol to Camp Metro at the West Side Girl Scout Leadership Center to GirlSports in outlying areas to Resident Camp at La Jita -- there's sure to be a fantastic campertunity for all girls!

Girl Scout summer camps are magical places where learning and growth go hand in hand with fun and friendship.

The Summer Retreat of 2014 promises an abundance of choices and experiences to match every girl’s wishes and interests. We’re confident the young lady in your life will find something fun she can’t wait to do this summer at our camps! Research has shown that nature is an important aspect of a child’s development in every major way -- intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically. That’s why we’re giving your girl the chance to spend her summer outdoors.

Texas Summer Camps Retreat is a place where a girl can make new friends, explore the world around her and discover something she can’t wait to do again. It’s a place where transformation happens. In an environment created just for her, a girl learns real life skills, develops self-esteem while gaining a sense of independence and community. While playing outdoors, girls encounter more opportunities for decision making that lets them work together to problem solve and think creatively. Summer Retreat Camp gives girls the chance to let their curiosity run free and sparks their imagination!

Whether she attends camp daily or spends the whole week away from home, Girl Scout camp helps a girl discover her potential, dreams, aspirations and builds a skill set she can use for success today and in her future. Texas campers will discover, connect and even take action on issues and challenges important to them.
