Camp with Girl Scouts
Summer is the best time to get outside, and there is no better place to explore the outdoors than at camp!
Girl Scout Camp has the benefits of experiencing the outdoors, in an all-girl environment. Girls develop confidence as they venture away from home and have new adventures. Spending time in nature, whether hanging from a climbing wall or taking a walk in the woods, has been linked with better mental, emotional, and physical health. Girls unplug as they step outside of their comfort zone and create lifelong friendships, without a gender bias. And of course, Girl Scout Camp is fun!
Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore has partnered with Girl Scouts Hearts of Michigan (GSHOM) and Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan for resident camp. You can find information about dates and location at GSHOM's camp website.
Resident Camping vs. Troop Camping
Resident Camp is for girls who have finished kindergarten and older. Girls camp for three to fourteen days and nights (the average is five nights). They plan activities with their counselors/volunteers, taking advantage of the resources available at the campsite.
Troop Camping is where girls stay with their troop/group and work with a core staff who offers activities. The staff/volunteers running the core staff camp experience provide all the logistical arrangements such as food, project supplies, and experienced instructors when needed.
