Forget Winter, Girl Scouts Are Thinking Summer Camp

Girl Scout summer camp teaches girls new skills and develops potential, gives girls new experiences, initiates new friendships, fosters strong values, and lets girls enjoy life, each other, and the trained adults who work with them.

Girl Scout Camp is available to all girls entering grades 1-12, whether they are Girl Scouts or not. It’s the perfect opportunity for new or experienced campers to enjoy exciting activities in a safe and nurturing environment. Activities can include hiking, horseback riding, swimming, sailing, canoeing, arts and crafts, sports and games, outdoor skills, theme days, or out-of-camp trips. Whatever the events, girls will learn new things, build confidence and self-esteem, and discover the fun and power of girls together.

There are one- and two-week sessions of both day or resident camp scheduled from June 30 to August 8 at two camps in Fairfield County:  the 16-acre wooded Camp Aspetuck in Weston or the 80-acre Camp Candlewood on the wooded shores of Lake Candlewood in New Fairfield. Daily bus transportation is included, and some financial aid is available.

To find out more about the camps, the public is invited to attend an Open House at Camp Aspetuck on Sunday, April 27, and one at Camp Candlewood on Sunday, May 4.  Both Open Houses will take place from 11-3, rain or shine.

Last year the camps were filled early in the season, so those interested should call the Girl Scout Council of Southwestern Connecticut at 203-762-5557 extension 11 or 800-882-5661 (CT only) as soon as possible to be mailed a camp brochure or to receive detailed directions to the camp open houses events.
