Discovering the Fun, Friendship and Power of Girls

Girl Scouts Summer Camps Hold Statewide Open House

April 6, 2009 - Girl Scouts of Connecticut invites you to visit one of our popular summer camps during the spring Open House Event on Sunday, May 3 from 2 pm - 4 pm. All of the Girl Scout camps (except Clatter Valley Camp) will be open to the public and families are encouraged to attend the event and discover the exciting programs designed for girls entering grades 1-12. The camp open houses will allow families to tour the facilities, meet with the camp directors and staff members, and learn about camp life. "With 11 day camps located throughout the state and 3 residential camps, Girl Scouts of Connecticut offers girls a safe, fun environment where they can discover their individual strengths, set and achieve goals and learn to work as a team," said Linda Bresky, Director of Outdoor Programs for Girl Scouts of Connecticut. A list of all the camps and their individual programs is located on the Girl Scouts of Connecticut website at http://www.gsofct.org/. For more information about the Open House Event and for directions to the camp sites, please call 800-922-2770 ext. 3310 or email general@gsofct.org.

In addition to traditional arts & crafts, swimming, hiking, games, canoeing, tennis, horseback riding and nature walks, Girl Scouts camps offer a variety of special interest programs such as Marvelous Mysteries where campers become scientists and learn chemistry magic; or Planet Protectors where girls learn ways to protect the planet while enjoying crafts created from recycled materials and playing ecologically-based games; or Creative Campers, a program that lets girls design costumes, perform skits and even learn to draw comic strips.

While each camp offers its own personalized, age-appropriate programs, all of the Girl Scouts camps and programs are designed to encourage girls to dream, make friends, and create treasured memories that will last a lifetime. "At our camps girls learn the importance of personal responsibility, the value of goal setting, the spirit of teamwork, and the thrill of accomplishment," said Bresky. "The experience can change the way a girl sees the world and her place in it.
