GSCSNJ has such an exciting summer planned! Why, you ask? Because summer camp is here!
Some of our summer camp highlights include:
- The return of the lake at Inawendiwin! Girls will once again be able to enjoy waterfront activities this year during Inawendiwin’s day camp. The very excited camp staff has all sorts of fun things planned, like canoeing, swimming, splashing, and waterfront games.
- Now you won’t have to wait all summer to see your troop with a troop camping option at Sacy. You can enjoy camp together and really bond in the great outdoors. Also exciting for Sacy this year is a day camp option for those not quite ready to stay away overnight. You’ll still be able to hike, cook, become an archer, and more, all while going home to the comfort of your own bed.
- Saddle up! Sacy and Oak Spring both have equestrian programs this summer. You’ll learn safety, how to care for horses, and of course, get to ride at a local stable.
- Don’t forget about our regular activities that are anything but average! You’ll be zip lining with the wind blowing in your hair, climbing the rock wall (I think I can see my house from up there…), become a bow-woman like Katniss, and play by the lake at any of our three camps.
For those who love the idea of camp, but won’t be attending camp themselves (ahem, I’m looking at you, grown-ups), consider sending a girl to camp by making a donation to GSCSNJ’s Campership campaign. You’ll make sure that no girl in our council will miss the opportunity to do any of the fun things above just because she can’t afford a week of camp. In addition to having a blast, girls gain so much from time spent at camp. They learn to be independent, self-sufficient, confident, and so much more. Give a girl the gift of camp and she’ll have the experience of a lifetime!
If you’re interested in signing up for camp or making a donation, there’s still time! Head over to www.campforgirls.org and check out the website. You’ll find the camp brochure, information on financial aid, and the Give Back button to make a contribution to Campership.
Have a great summer, campers!
