HALFMOON, NY (04/24/2013)(readMedia)– Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York’s summer programs allow girls to choose a day or overnight camp experience. At camp girls can experience traditional activities such as spending a night sleeping under the stars, cooking on a fire or learning how to canoe. But girls will also have the chance to experience dance, horseback riding, graphic cartooning, fine arts, climbing the High Peaks of the Adirondacks, theatre and much more.
Camps and programs are managed by staff members who are dedicated to the education of girls, and bring a wealth of experience and excitement about what they do. The variety of programs available has been designed to appeal to girls in K-12th grade. Some examples are:
Imagine girls conducting their own experiments! In the Potions & Lotions program girls get to mix all sorts of things. They will create their own facial scrub or try out glow in the dark nail polish or take a different approach and work with chemistry at the Nature Center.
For girls who love horses! Perhaps they have some horse riding skills. Horse Haven is the perfect program. Girls will go to a nearby stable and learn about horses by trained professionals and experience the countryside on horseback.
Are girls good at finding things? Geocaching is a fun activity in which girls have to use a GPS to find treasures that are hidden in places that no one knows about unless you are geocaching. Girls will learn how to use a GPS and then set out and find what’s hidden.
Camp is a magical, wonderful place where girl have the opportunity to meet old and new friends, gain confidence in their skills and feel good about them while learning new things!
There is still time to register. Registration deadline is June 15, 2013. Visit www.gsneny.org for more information.
Girls will love all there is to do at Girl Scout Camp.
