Send a Girl to Camp
Few things are as memorable for a girl as going away to camp for the summer. While she may not remember exactly how this rite of passage made her more responsible and independent or how it gave her an appreciation for nature, she'll know it did. And she'll remember sleeping under the stars, making s'mores around the fire and singing silly camp songs in the warm breeze with her new friends for years to come.
Without a doubt, camp leaves a positive, lasting impression on those who are fortunate enough to experience it, but not every family can afford it. In 2011, the GSSJC Campership Committee awarded $72,635 to send 276 girls to summer camp. But this wouldn't have been possible without your donations.
Unfortunately, every year our Council receives more requests for assistance than funding allows. The average cost for one week at Girl Scout camp is $350. You can help a girl create the memories of a lifetime.Your support is vital to our success. Donate today!
