Give the Gift of Camp This Year!

The holidays are coming and we have the perfect gift idea for your intrepid Girl Scout: an IOU for one awesome summer camp experience in 2018!

Why give camp?

There are so many reasons to choose Girl Scout camp as your go to gift this year. First, camp is fun! And who doesn’t want their girl to have fun? Camp is also a great way to boost her confidence, expand her horizons, and build her leadership. Sounds awesome, right?

Plus, no matter which camp she chooses, she’ll be spending part of her day outdoors, and spending time outdoors has many added benefits, such as a positive impact on mental health, and increased problem solving skills, and a creativity boost. All excellent reasons to make summer camp a must do for your girl in 2018!

What types of camp experiences are offered at Girl Scouts of Western Ohio?

Our summer camps offer a wide variety of themes and activities, so there’s sure to be something that fits your girl’s different interests. You can be sure we’ll have options for nature lovers, trailblazers, future scientists, risk takers, creative artists, and many more! For more detail on our camp opportunities, keep an eye out for our 2018 age-level summer camp guides mailing in January.

While you’re waiting for the camp mailer, you can get a feel for our offerings by checking out the 2017 camp guides. Click on a 2017 camp booklet cover for your girl’s age level  to download a PDF. Keep in mind these won’t necessarily be the same sessions offered in 2018, but they’ll give you an idea of the awesome camp experiences that will be available to your girl next year!
